Apple recently launched a few new products including the M2 iPad Pro, 10th Gen iPad, and a refreshed Apple TV 4K. The 2022 model of the Apple TV features the A15 Bionic chip, HDR10+, and an option for Ethernet connectivity. Here, we will go through the specs, features, availability, and expected price of the 3rd gen Apple TV 4K (2022) in Nepal.

Apple TV 4K (2022) Overview:

While the Apple TV 4K looks identical to its predecessor, it is significantly smaller and lighter. This is all because of the A15 Bionic chip inside whose efficiency gains remove the need for active cooling. Apple also says the compact form factor for the 3rd gen Apple TV 4K (2022) results in a 25% reduction in carbon footprint.

“The efficiency gains of A15 Bionic eliminate the need for an internal fan”

Apple claims that the 2022 model is up to 50% faster in terms of CPU performance and 30% faster in terms of GPU performance than the 2021 model.

The third-gen Apple TV 4K (2022) adds support for HDR10+, in addition to the existing Dolby Vision, HLG, and HDR10. The maximum supported output is 2160p at 60fps. In addition, you can enjoy surround sound with Dolby Atmos, Dolby Digital 7.1, and Dolby Digital 5.1.

The most notable change is the elimination of ethernet connectivity from the base 64GB model. Users who require a wired connection must therefore select the 128GB variant. The 128GB model also supports thread mesh networking protocol for smart home devices.

Siri Remote

There are no significant changes made to this year’s Siri Remote for Apple TV 4K (2022), except for the charging port. It now charges via USB-C instead of the lightning port. The remote uses Bluetooth 5.0 and IR transmission for connectivity. It even includes a microphone and a dedicated button for Siri.

With the tvOS 16, Apple is planning on introducing easier voice control interaction. For example, AirPods owners can simply say “Hey Siri” to control the Apple TV 4K hands-free. Siri will recognize the voice of the user and customize the results accordingly for easier access to the content.
