Check the Apple TV unit
  • The Apple TV 1st Generation is probably the easiest one to recognize because the unit is silver and the Apple Remote is white.
  • The Apple TV 2nd and 3rd Generations are both black with aluminum Apple Remotes.
  • The Apple TV HD and Apple TV 4K are both black with black Apple TV or Siri remotes.
You can also easily tell the difference between Apple TV 1st Generation, Apple TV HD (formerly Apple TV 4th Generation), and Apple TV 4K by their ports. Unfortunately, the 2nd and 3rd Generation ports look identical.

If you believe you have a 2nd or 3rd Generation Apple TV by looking at the parts and ports, turn it upside down and you’ll see the model number in small print. Then just check the Apple support site to see which generation it is.
 
This tvOS 14 upgrade is indeed very strong. Apple spends so much effort to build the software on this platform, and the beneficiaries are all the old devices Apple TV 4K, which will not increase any income for Apple.

So will we have a new Apple TV this yr? i am wondering;)
