    Announced at Apple's September 2015 special event, the Fourth Generation of the Apple TV is a considerable upgrade from the previous versions of the device, which were smaller and solely focused on playing and streaming media files using Apple-authored apps.

    The new version of the system uses a subset of Apple's iOS mobile operating system known as tvOS, along with the A8 system-on-a-chip utilized in the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus, and a new "Siri Remote" that includes a motion sensor, microphone and touch pad. As a result, Apple has released SDKs that allow for development of apps and games for the platform.


    • Storage: Available in 32GB and 64GB models
    • RAM: 2GB
    • System-On-A-Chip (SoC) Platform: Apple A8
    • Networking: Wi-Fi, Ethernet, Bluetooth 4.0
    • Software: Apple tvOS (Based on iOS9)
    • Controller: Includes "Siri Remote" with motion controls, microphone and touchpad. Also supports MFi controllers.
