The new Apple TV 4K gets a revamped remote and A12 Bionic chip

At its Spring Forward event, Apple announced a new Apple TV 4K streaming box, its first since 2017. New to this model is the company’s A12 Bionic chip. Apple says the updated silicon allows the Apple TV to play HDR video at higher frame rates, as well as decode video faster. But if you’ve owned a previous model, what’s most exciting is that it will come with a redesigned remote. Made from 100 percent recycled aluminum, it features a new, more ergonomic design.  

The Apple TV 4K will be available in two storage configurations. The 32GB model will cost $179, while a 64GB variant will set you back $199.
