And Apple TV 4K, worth it? [atualizado]

Obviously the Apple tv It wasn't the high point of Ma's special event yesterday, but the launch of its fifth generation, let's say, is really important.

Exactly two years after the introduction of the fourth generation model (check our full review here), we now finally have a set top box Apple not only supports 4K resolution, but also HDR mode.

Let's point out all the differences:

4K resolution

The second-generation Apple TV only supported 720p video output. In the third we move to 1080p, which remained in the fourth.

Now on Apple TV 4K, we have nothing less than 4x the number of pixels over the previous one (more pixel density, sharper picture). But obviously to enjoy this you need to connect to set top box to a television that is 4K.

To do streaming 4K content (or, if you prefer 2160p this way), you will need at least 15Mbps connection.

HDR mode

The acronym HDR stands for High dynamic range or, in good Portuguese, great dynamic range.

In practice, HDR-enabled televisions provide HDR content playback with clearer, deeper, more immersed color images.

Apple TV 4K supports both Dolby Vision and HDR10.

Performance

Here's a big leap: on fourth-generation Apple TV we had an A8 chip; on Apple 4K TV, we move to an A10X Fusion (same as current iPad Pro).

In practice, this means that all navigation through the tvOS interface and content playback should be smoother, and obviously this also opens doors for more complex apps / games running on the web. set top box.

Remote Control

Siri Remote is called Apple TV Remote in countries where Siri does not yet work on set top box, as here in Brazil did not gain new features (such as those rumored haptic feedbacks), but got a slight visual change:

Now the ?Menu? button has a white border. According to Apple, this helps people more easily identify whether the remote control is facing up or down.

He also had his price reduced from $ 70 to $ 50 in the United States, and from $ 550 to $ 400 in Brazil.

Hardware

The Apple TV box is identical to the previous one. Same dimensions, same weight. Unless you look behind her:

Earlier there, above the HDMI port, was a USB-C used to connect Apple TV to Macs for system restoration, screenshots or technical assistance. For some reason, Apple decided to take it away.

Although visually the other ports are the same, HDMI now version 2.0a (the previous one, 1.4, did not support 4K content playback with 60Hz and no HDR) and 10/100 Ethernet became Gigabit Ethernet.

Inside, the Bluetooth 4.0 chip has been upgraded to a 5.0 (though the Siri Remote itself still operates on version 4.0).

Capabilities and prices

Until yesterday's event, fourth-generation Apple TV was sold in the United States in 32GB and 64GB versions for $ 150 and $ 200, respectively (or for $ 1,100 and $ 1,400 in Brazil).

With the launch of Apple TV 4K, Apple will continue to sell only the 32GB model of the fourth generation and, interestingly, did not move her price. The new ones will come for $ 180 and $ 200 ($ 1,300 and $ 1,400), in the same capacities.

Is it worth it?

The most obvious / fair answer ?depends?, of course.

If you already have or intend to buy soon a 4K / HDR TV (whose prices are falling, but still prohibitive for many people), I think I don't even have to answer that.

If not, I think the gains over the fourth generation model may not be so worth it. You will basically have a smoother / faster Apple TV for everything and obviously already ready for when in the future you will get a new television.

But if you still have a third-generation (or earlier) Apple TV, this is a very good time to buy this new one.

According to iDownloadBlog It turns out, Apple TV really doesn't need the USB-C port anymore because everything can be done wireless It even connects to Xcode to capture screenshots and make video recordings, as well as run diagnostic tools.
