The future Apple TV would be powered by an A14 Bionic SoC and would arrive at the end of the year




Apple would have finally postponed the release of its next Apple TV. The latter would however benefit from a good update for its hardware configuration.

Initially expected at the end of last year on the occasion of the various announcements made by Apple, the streaming box should finally see the light of day at the end of the year.

Apple TV 6 to be unveiled in November

According to LeaksApplePro on Twitter, the Apple TV 6 is indeed slated for release next November, which is consistent with previous reports from leaker Jon Prosser. This information also agrees on another point: better performance, which in itself, is not really the revelation of the century.

While Prosser's information relied on the A12Z chip currently present in the iPad Pro, LeaksApplePro explains having obtained information according to which this next model would be powered by the A14, that is to say the chip embedded within the iPhone 12 and the new iPad Air.

In terms of graphics performance, the A14 is 8% faster than the A12Z according to tests carried out and published on the Geekbench tool. As a reminder, the current Apple TV 4K is powered by the A10X chip.



A more practical remote control

In its tweet, LeaksApplePro also mentions a new design for the included remote control. Note in passing that the company was also working on peripheral accessories. Some are already imagining a controller to transform the Apple TV into a console via the Apple Arcade subscription. Indeed, since tvOS 13, released in the fall of 2019, it is possible to pair an Xbox or PS4 controller to Apple TV.

The remote control that came with the Apple TV left many puzzled. Some consider it too small, others regret that it only has six buttons. Finally, others hate navigation on the touchpad.

For this next model, Apple would have planned to embed the “Locate” functionality and therefore to take advantage of the U1 chip available since the iPhone 11. It would also not be surprising that this remote control presents a shortcut dedicated to the Apple TV + service.
