Apple TV 6, the upgraded one was said to launch last year, but according to a tipster, the company had other plans. In fact, the latest information says that we should not expect it in the first half of this year.
A tipster named LeaksApplePro has shared another prediction for the Apple TV 6 in a tweet. If you plan to buy it, you’ll have to wait a while because the tipster believes it will launch in November. Previously, one report also told me that it could drop during Q4, 2021.
However, where this info and the one from Jon Prosser differ quite a bit is the internals. According to the Front-Page Tech host, the Apple TV 6 will ship with iPad Pro-like hardware, while LeaksApplePro claims that it will feature an A14 Bionic.
Apple’s custom silicon is powerful enough to beat the A12Z Bionic in a GPU test, and the upgraded cooling system of the 2021 Apple TV will ensure that the performance cores are running at their highest possible frequencies without throttling.
What’s New in Apple TV 6?
More info from the tweet talks about a redesigned remote. Nowhere is it mentioned that the Apple TV 6 will ship with a gaming controller, but according to previous rumors, Apple is working on this accessory. Unfortunately, we don’t know if Apple plans on bundling it with the latest hardware or sell it separately. We also don’t know the expected pricing, only that the 2021 Apple TV will arrive in two storage configurations.
However, we’d still recommend you treat this info with a pinch of salt. LeaksApplePro doesn’t have the cleanest of records, as he previously mentioned that the new Apple TV will feature an A12Z Bionic and would arrive in December 2020. Like always, stay tuned for more, and we’ll be back with the latest updates.
Apple has never failed to bring joy and excitement to its customers and it will surely amaze them with the new TV.
If the rumors about a gaming controller being shipped with the Apple TV 6 is true then Apple can attract more people who like gaming and this will help it boost its sale.
Although, the tweet indicates a redesigned remote will be featured. There are no mentions of any gaming controller with the TV. There is still no information about whether Apple will sell it separately or with the latest hardware.
