tvOS 11 confirms the name “Apple TV 4K”; check out her new default screensaver! [atualizado]

The verse Golden Master (GM) of iOS 11 confirmed the names of the three new iPhones that will be released tomorrow at the Apple special event. Now, the developer and reader of Guilherme Rambo found in firmware of tvOS 11 confirmation of the name of the set-top box from Apple, which in its fifth generation will come with content support in 4K resolution and HDR.

Here it is:

Reference to the name Apple TV 4K

For the first time, Ma change the name of Apple TV. And, yes, she followed the logic and call the new device “Apple TV 4K” which is justified since this makes things a lot easier for users to understand the main difference between the new set-top box and the fourth generation (which will probably continue to be sold as a more affordable option, for those who do not have a 4K TV).

In addition to the name, Rambo sent us the screensaver Apple TV 4K standard, which you can see below:

The developer also shared the redesigned images used by Apple in set-top box for the App Store, the Photos app, Search and the TV app:

Rambo also informed that we will have a new model of the Apple TV Remote with Touch (the current one identified by the code B239 while the new one, by the B439). The changes, apparently, will only be internal as he found no reference to a new design; It is possible, however, that Apple managed to hide the marketing images of the firmware very well.

J about HDR support, the 9to5Mac reported that the codes found refer to “HDR Modes” in the Settings app, explaining that Apple TV chooses the widest color range available on its television. If you don't see this, the system asks you to check if the Apple TV is connected to an HDMI 2.0 port.

The same code also makes reference to Dolby Vision, informing that it is an image with better and brighter colors also informing the user to check if the HDMI cable is compatible before activating Dolby Vision.

Earlier today, we reported that Apple TV 4K will come equipped with the A10X Fusion chip and that it will have 3GB of RAM.

Here it seems that the new remote control does bring noticeable news:

Rambo found references in the codes that imply that the new Apple TV Remote (called Siri Remote in places where the assistant already works on tvOS) must have a Taptic Engine that is, it will give haptic responses (in practice, “shaking”) to the user.

This is really cool! 😉
