Breaking news @ Jioriku revealed that Apple plans to release a new generation of Apple TV6 in September while releasing a new Apple TV6. The processor will be equipped with A12X bionic processor, which has the same performance as the 2018 iPad Pro, which provides a higher performance gaming experience. The appearance is not much changed from the previous generation, but it will enhance its cooling system.

Earlier, Twitter blogger @Jon Prosser broke the news that the new generation of Apple TV will have 64GB/128GB storage space and support 4K video in addition to the A12X bionic processor. In addition, the new Apple TV is likely to also use the new tvOS system, so that Apple TV6 has a better gaming advantage.

For Apple, the positioning of Apple TV is the next-generation set-top box, which not only assumes the function of a game console, but also has video streaming and online music playback functions. In terms of games, Apple TV is a cheap alternative to Sony PS4 and Microsoft Xbox One. At the press conference in the 2015s, Cook called App the future of TV, and Apple TV was a revolution, which represented "the future of TV." Since then, Apple announced that Apple TV supports Xbox and Playstation gamepads respectively.

The news about the iPhone 12 series of new machines is still continuous. Last week, Bloomberg reported that Apple will launch new HomePod and Apple TV this year. The news of Apple TV6 has been exposed recently, and there may be news about HomePod in the future. It seems that Apple is planning a very large press conference, which is exciting.
The new Apple TV 6 uses a more powerful processor is to encourage users to use the Apple Arcade game service. It is suggested that Apple will launch a new game controller to cooperate, so that Apple TV can serve as a game console.


If this is true, then with the blessing of this chip, Apple TV 6 will become one of the most powerful products in Apple's product line. Although the processor used by the iPad Pro in 2018 is used, according to sources, the performance of the new Apple TV 6 will be better than the iPad Pro 2018 thanks to the new cooling solution.

"Apple TV 6" Pricing
The Apple TV 4K retails for $179 at 32GB and $199 for 64GB. An "Apple TV 6" will likely remain in those price points and move the Apple TV 4K into the $150 range or lower.


We’re sure there’s more hardware expected during Apple’s September keynote, but this is all that we have for you at this time, so stay tuned for more updates.


The current Apple tv 4k is practically overpowered for video playback needs. I could give examples of how it's already significantly more powerful than the shield tv.

Such a processor/gpu upgrade, to A12X and whatever GPU, would only be useful for gaming, which I don't do. So, they'll have to get my business with other improvements.

If it bitstreams all audio I might be interested.

If it is future proofed with HDMI 2.1 I'd be more interested.

I'd be happier with a remote that's more like other devices, although I've never hated the trackpad.
