32GB or 64GB Apple TV? Understand how tvOS works before choosing your model

The new Apple TV it's already on sale. Unlike the first three generations, the set-top box fourth generation has two models: one of 32GB and another from 64GB. But after all, which one to choose?

Here's what Apple says about it:

Choose 32GB or 64GB capacity.

If you want to use your Apple TV mainly to play movies, TV shows and music or to play and use some apps, the 32GB capacity is enough. But if you want to download and use a lot of apps and games, choose the 64GB configuration.

It doesn't help much, does it? But well by a. If you have clogged your iPhone with games, this is an indication that the 64GB model may be the best choice for you. Yes, it is true that Apple introduced new technologies in iOS 9 and tvOS that greatly help users of devices with less space for storage. But that does not necessarily mean that anyone will be comfortable with a 16GB iPhone or, in the case of Apple TV, the 32GB model. THE Polygon thoroughly investigated the appeal entitled Thinning app and explained how it works in Ma's black box.

Game on TV next to the new Apple TV and remote

We know that apps created for Apple TV will have a 200MB limit, which at the time made many users claim that the 32GB model would be more than enough. But the ?leap of the cat? that, despite the limit, immediately after installing a 200MB app / game, he can download a new 2GB of resources. In addition, apps / games will be able to download / delete content whenever necessary, for example, download stages that will still be played by the user and delete levels left behind. App creators will have 20GB of space on iCloud to store this type of content on demand. That is, at the end of the day a game can occupy much more space than the initial 200MB.

Hardly a single game occupies a space close to 20GB on your Apple TV, after all, the idea is to lower the content according to the demand of the game. But to imagine that it will be around 200MB is also very unlikely.

it is clear that this new structure harm some developers. Tyrone Rodriguez (from Nicalis) said that the game The Binding of Isaac: Rebirth does not meet Apple's requirements without a nice rework being done. ?This device (Apple TV) was created to be used with home Wi-Fi / cable internet, but clearly Apple wants to reduce the file size so that more apps will fit on the device. something a little hypocritical and far from ideal for developing a game. ?

We will see how to be the reception of the market (developers and users) for this new structure implemented by Apple.
