What people are saying about the next-gen Apple TV

But, judging by this support document, you won't be able to download the 4K version of the titles you already purchased-only the HD versions.

In addition to iTunes, the Apple TV 4K supports 4K streaming from Netflix and other streaming services. But at the same time, some people like downloading their movies and streaming locally, off of a computer, rather than relying on a external Internet connection.

That has been the question on many Apple watchers' minds over the past week after the company unveiled the Apple TV 4K set-top box at its iPhone event.

Arriving tomorrow, the Apple TV 4K also supports HDR content. The upgraded streaming box comes with CPU with performance twice as fast and graphics four times faster. In his review, Engadget's Devindra Hardawar called the Apple TV 4K the set-top box "we've been waiting for", but acknowledged that the device's remote might do little to settle the debate.

But, CNET found the new Apple TV to be too expensive and considered competitors including Roku to have more bang for their buck, based on image qualities. However, users get to access 4K movies and videos for a price.

Apple has now confirmed in a statement to The Verge that the omission of Dolby Atmos from the Apple TV 4K was not due to a hardware limitation and that it would roll out soon with a future update.

The Apple TV app, one of the default apps included on iPhones and iPads, also syncs with the Apple TV 4K so that you can pick up a show on your mobile device at the same point where you stopped watching it on your television. The recently announced Apple TV 4K is a natural pick in that department. The Apple TV (4th generation) 32GB variant now costs Rs 12,900.
