Apple TV 4K (6th generation): Everything You Need to Know – AppleTV 4 Jailbreak (appletv4jailbreak.com)

After almost three years without a new hardware spec bump, Apple finally updated its Apple TV 4K set box. To keep up with the most advanced technologies for entertainment, the updated model now features the A12 Bionic chip. This is the same chip found on the iPad (8th generation).

A12 Bionic Chip

With improved performance this chip offers, you’ll find an even smoother experience when watching movies or even playing graphic-intensive games from Apple Arcade. The A12 chip also enables high frame rate HDR and Dolby Vision video. So if you have an iPhone 12 Pro, you can record 4K footage at up to 60fps in Dolby Vision and watch that on the new Apple TV 4K.

Innovative Color Balance Process

– Advertisement –

Video on Apple TV 4K will look even better than before as Apple is working with several leading providers to roll out content in HFR HDR. With better picture quality, we also need to consider color balance. Thankfully, Apple came up with something innovative. To calibrate the color balance, place the front of your iPhone onto the television screen. From there, Apple TV and iPhone work together to create the most optimized color balance using the iPhone’s light sensor. This will enable Apple TV to yield better contrast and color accuracy, so say good-bye to fumbling around the TV settings.

All-New Siri Remote

Along with the updated Apple TV 4K, Apple debuted the redesigned Siri Remote. Apparently, it’s taking the best of both – the remotes from both 2010 and 2015. As you probably know, the Siri Remote from 2015 comes with a glass trackpad. This makes it much more prone to cracks when it fell on a hard floor. That’s no longer there on the all-new Siri Remote. Instead, it features a clickpad control similar to that of the iPod’s signature click wheel interface. It now has a power button as well as a mute button to turn on/off the TV or mute it, respectively.

With all of these features, Apple TV 4K offers everything that tvOS offers, including Apple TV+, Apple Fitness+, and Apple Music. It will start at $179 for 32GB and $199 for 64GB. Apple will still offer the Apple TV HD with the new Siri Remote for $149. Apple will sell the new Siri Remote separately for $59, and it works with all Apple TV HD and 4K models. Too bad that you can still easily lose that remote, but you can use AirTag to make sure you won’t lose it again. (Check out our coverage for AirTag here).

tvOS 15.1, watchOS 8.1 Final Download Released For Apple TV, Apple Watch – AppleTV 4 Jailbreak (appletv4jailbreak.com)

Apple has now made tvOS 15.1 and watchOS 8.1 available for download. The updates can be downloaded right now and we’d always suggest that you do so as soon as possible to ensure you’re benefitting from the latest bug fixes, security improvements, and features.

Both of the new updates continue Apple’s push to update its recent software releases often, often fixing issues brought to devices by tvOS 15 and watchOS 8.

tvOS 15.1: This latest tvOS 15.1 release brings with it support for SharePlay, a feature that was supposed to be part of tvOS 15 initially but was canned late in the development cycle.

Users can watch TV and more while sharing the experience with other people, all for the very first time. Apple has also included the usual array of fixes, too.

watchOS 8.1: This new update, like many for Apple Watch, centers on fixes and under-the-hood changes and we don’t expect any big new features to be added here. We’d still suggest that users install the update as soon as possible, however.

These new releases join iOS 15.1 and iPadOS 15.1 as Apple works to fix bugs and introduce new security fixes as quickly and regularly as possible. These are the latest and greatest software updates Apple offers and should be installed at the earliest opportunity.

Introduction

The Apple TV 4K 2021 is the latest high-end, high-priced and high-performing streaming box from the makers of the iPhone 12.

While Amazon, Roku and Google are in a race to the bottom when it comes to pricing for streaming sticks and boxes, Apple is heading in a different direction. Similar to the Nvidia TV Pro, this is a pricey box that focuses on quality and performance.

If you want the best streaming box experience and aren’t fussed about saving a few pennies in the process, then this is the one to go for. It’s even better if you’re in the Apple ecosystem, and a no-brainer if you, like me, have invested heavily in iTunes content over the years.

Design

  • Black box is fairly discrete
  • Unchanged from previous version
  • One of the larger streaming devices

The new 2021 edition of the Apple TV 4K looks identical to the outgoing model. It also looks just like the 1080p model that’s available (but is very overpriced and worth ignoring).

This isn’t a bad thing as it remains a sleek, minimalist black box that’ll blend into your media unit without much hassle.

It would have been nice if Apple had swapped out the glossy finish for a matte one to try and stem the sheer amount of dust that gathers around the sides – but that’s my only complaint about the design.

It’s a simple looking box

The fact that this is a streaming box at all sets it apart from the competition, many of which are now purely stuck that plug directly into a spare HDMI port. Options like the Chromecast with Google TV, Fire TV Stick and so on take up less space than the Apple TV 4K and are far more portable. However, unless you’re really tight on space this isn’t really an issue.

Inside the Apple TV 4K 2021’s box, you’ll find, well, very little. There’s the new remote and a charging cable, plus a plug. Basic, straightforward stuff. You won’t find an HDMI cable included which, for the price, seems stingy.

Remote

  • Completely redesigned and a big improvement
  • Has a power button for your TV
  • Charges via Lightning

The Siri Remote that shipped with the previous Apple TV 4K was a thing of ridicule. It was too thin, too light and the trackpad too prone to accidental touches. The merest of swipes would bring it to life and it was an absolute nightmare if you had a wandering dog that liked to jump on it.

It’s taken a few years, but Apple has finally redesigned the remote and it’s a huge improvement. It’s far from the best remote I have ever used, but considering just how bad the older one was, it makes all the difference.

Old vs New Siri remotes

Instead of being a thin, slippery and light remote that seemed to have a great skill at getting caught between in a sofa, this new version is a thick slab of aluminium. It’s longer, weightier and now has a slightly curved back.

Apple hasn’t completely killed the trackpad and it clearly still believes swiping is a better than clicking. The pad is now centred in the middle of a click wheel that’s not too dissimilar to the classic iPod. You can navigate through the menus either by swiping or by clicking, and it’s more responsive than before.

Below the wheel, you’ve got a selection of very clicky buttons. There’s one for altering the volume, another for playing/pausing and a welcome mute switch that’s a nice addition. There’s also a new ‘Back’ button that sits alongside a TV button that’ll either take you to the main app screen or to Apple’s TV app.

The Siri key has been moved to the side, just like on an iPhone, and there’s a very small power button right at the top that’ll turn a TV off or on. At the bottom, there’s a Lightning port for charging. After an initial charge, I have been using the remote every day for weeks and it’s barely used up any juice.

It’s nice to see a remote that isn’t overloaded with branded buttons for random streaming services you’ll never use. I guess that’s just not necessary when the Apple TV 4K is quite so expensive.

You can also buy it separately if have the previous Apple TV 4K or HD model and just want the new remote. At £55 / $59 it’s pricey. As a comparison, the remote alone is roughly the same price as the whole Google TV with Chromecast package.

While it’s most definitely nicer to use, the new remote isn’t as smart as the previous model and in my opinion, not as smart as it should be. The accelerometers that let you use the remote as a game controller have been ditched. Hardly a big deal, but a bit odd nevertheless. It also seems even stranger Apple hasn’t fitted this remote with the UWB tech that powers the AirTag. Being able to precisely find the remote with your iPhone when its caught behind a cushion would make so much sense.

Interface and apps

  • Sleek UI with the excellent TV app
  • Most big (and smaller) streaming services supported
  • Ties in well to an iPhone

Apple’s software approach to its TV box is the same as its takes with its phones and tablets. The basic operating system is the same on this new box as the previous generation and it’ll get frequent updates. The TvOS slated for release later this year will add Spatial Audio, a feature I was surprised to learn wasn’t already present.

That means that if you’re upgrading from an older Apple TV you won’t notice anything particularly different.

Setup is easy if you have an iPhone handy – just hold it close to the Apple TV 4K and most of the initial setup can be done from the phone. This is very welcome when installing and logging in to multiple streaming apps. No iPhone? It’s still all fairly straightforward but with more remote text input.

The home screen is a big grid of apps, with a top portion highlighting certain content from supported apps. Click into the Apple TV app and things get a bit more interesting.

This is Apple’s content hub, pulling together shows from multiple streaming services and an iTunes film and TV library. You’ve got a watch list, plus rows upon rows of recommended shows. Clicking on something to watch takes you right into it, even if it’s from another app. Big streaming services like Disney Plus, Now, Prime, iPlayer and more are available so if you play things right you’ll spend most of your time in this TV app. Netflix, however, does not.

A lot of this app is taken up by Apple TV Plus, and the original shows that come along with the £4.99 / $4.99 per month streaming service. It’s not quite as in-your-face as Prime Video on an Amazon Fire Stick, but if you don’t subscribe to TV Plus you’ll find the constant mentions of it annoying.

In terms of app support, the Apple TV 4K is up there with Roku and Fire TV in terms of broad app support, and I so far haven’t spotted a missing service. In the UK, you’ve got all for the major TV channels (iPlayer, ITV Hub, All 4 and Channel 5) plus the usual stalwarts like Disney+, Prime Video and Netflix.

There’s also Now, which supports the higher frame rate playback of sports if you subscribe to the Boost add-on and BT Sport. While the BT Sport app does support 4K, it is missing HDR. There’s also AirPlay, a handy way of streaming other content from your phone to the box. 

The only obvious missing app I noticed was Google Play Movies, however you’ll be able to playback your purchased Google content through the YouTube app so that’s far from a big loss.

You’ll get 4K and HDR (either through HDR10 or Dolby Vision) through any app that supports it too. The only missing trick here is that there’s no HLG HDR support in iPlayer, meaning this box won’t stream events like Wimbledon in UHD. That’s a shame.

It’s great if you have lots of iTunes movies

For audio, Apple Music now supports Dolby Atmos and there are apps for Spotify, Amazon Music and others. 

Performance

  • Excellent picture
  • Wide HDR support
  • Very fast and capable

So far, remote aside, there hasn’t been much to separate this Apple TV 4K from the last version. It has the same design, the same software and with the remote being sold separately there’s little to warrant the upgrade.

Hardware-wise though, there are some improvements. The chipset powering the box has been upgraded, from the A10X to the A12 and while this isn’t Apple’s latest chip (it was first used in the iPhone XS in 2018) it makes for the snappiest streaming box around.

There’s also Wi-Fi 6 if you have the right router and support for Thread – a new smart home protocol that Apple already supports with the HomePod Mini. The Apple TV 4K can already act as a hub for your smart home tech and this will help futureproof that.

Around the back of the box is an HDMI 2.1 port and gigabit ethernet which you should use if your home Wi-Fi isn’t that reliable.

While it’s nice to see HDMI 2.1 here like it is on a PS5 or Xbox Series X, it isn’t really being used for much at this stage and will only be relevant to those with a compatible TV.

While those consoles can push out 4K 120fps content, the Apple TV 4K tops out at 4K HDR 60fps – which Apple labels as ‘high frame rate HDR’. Content that plays in this format is tough to find, with YouTube and RedBull TV so far the only places I have spotted it. Still, hopefully in the future this tech will be helpful in sport-focussed streaming services.

On the back there’s HDMI 2.1, power input and gigabit ethernet

You don’t need an iPhone nor any other Apple tech to use an Apple TV, however being part of the ecosystem does expand the functionality of this box. The remote control app for iOS lets you use a keyboard for text entry and if you’ve got some AirPods you can funnel the audio from the TV to the buds.

The Apple TV 4K supports a whole load of HDR formats, including HDR10, HLG (not supported via iPlayer, though) and Dolby Vision. The only missing format is HDR10+, which isn’t widely used anyway. For audio, you’ve got all the usual standards (MP3, AAC, ALAC) along with surround formats up to Dolby Atmos.

If you used the previous Apple TV 4K you will be familiar with the slightly quirky way the box handles HDR. If you set the box up with the 4K HDR option selected, everything that comes out of the box will be in this format – even if the content you’re viewing is SDR. This is particularly odd if you’re watching something from an app like iPlayer as colours appear washed-out. I’d recommend you select the output at 4K, and then select the ‘Match Dynamic Range’ option. This will only output in HDR when the source supports it.

I’ve been reviewing this Apple TV 4K on a number of different TVs. A higher-end Samsung Q85T with an HDMI 2.1 port, mid-range 2017 LG Nanocell and a budget Hisense 4K model.

Obviously, the strength of the picture will vary depending on your setup, but with each TV I tested the Apple TV 4K pumped out out a better picture than the built-in streaming apps. It’s also the best for pure picture quality when compared to other streaming devices, like the Chromecast with Google TV. When compared to Google’s offering, the Apple TV 4K offers more brightness and more vibrant colours. But then you should be expecting that, considering the price.

I have also been comparing the previous Apple TV 4K to the new model and while there are improvements, I am not sure you’d notice them unless you go looking. The biggest difference is with the contrast in HDR movies, with the Samsung Q85T providing deeper blacks with the newer model plugged in. Still, the older model remains better than much of the competition.

A new feature Apple introduced alongside the new Apple TV 4K (but that works on older models too) is Adjust Colour Balance. This uses the Face ID sensor on an iPhone (X or newer, but not the SE 2) to calibrate your television to provide a better picture – or at least that’s the idea.

It’s a very quick process; you just need to hold your phone up to the display for a few seconds while numerous colours pop in and out. While the results didn’t make much difference on my higher-end or mid-range televisions, they added a notable extra pop to the colour on the budget Hisense model. These settings only work for the Apple TV though, so it’s not calibrating the whole TV.

Should you buy it?

You want the best, no-compromise streaming box: The Apple TV 4K is great at streaming content in excellent quality. It supports Dolby Vision, Dolby Atmos and has the App Store for all the big apps.

You’re on a budget: There’s no getting around the fact that even though this is a fully-featured box, there is a myriad of cheaper options available that do very much the same thing.

Final Thoughts

The Apple TV 4K 2021 is the best streaming box around and a worthy purchase if you’re happy to dismiss the much cheaper competition. It’s less of an instant recommendation for those who have the previous-gen model, though.

Yes, the remote is a big upgrade, but you can buy that separately, and the new model isn’t a big upgrade unless you really want the futureproofing of HDM 2.1, Thread and Wi-Fi 6.

Still, if you’re looking to upgrade your home cinema setup or you’ve recently bagged one of the best TVs around, this is an ideal companion. The breadth of 4K HDR content is ace, the UI slick and quick and you’ll get plenty of updates from Apple.

FAQs

Does the Apple TV 4K support HDR10+?

No, that format is not supported here

Does the Apple TV support Dolby Atmos?

Yes if you have the required hardware

Does it come with an HDMI cable?

No, you’ll need to provide your own HDMI cable

Jargon buster

HDMI

HDMI stands for High Definition Multimedia Interface and is to transmit video/audio signals from a source to a receiver.

HDR

HDR stands for High Dynamic Range and refers to contrast (or difference) between the brightest and darkest parts of an image. HDR content preserves details in the darkest and brightest areas of a picture, details that are often lost in old imaging standards. HDR10 is mandated to be included on all HDR TVs. It’s also supported by 4K projectors.

iOS

The operating system that powers Apple’s mobile devices.

Dolby Vision

Dolby Vision is a variant of HDR, adding a layer of dynamic metadata to the core HDR signal. This dynamic metadata carries scene-by-scene (or frame-by-frame) instructions from content creators on how a TV should present the images to improve everything from brightness to contrast, detailing and colour reproduction.

U.S. Department of Justice Likely to File Antitrust Lawsuit Against Apple – AppleTV 4 Jailbreak (appletv4jailbreak.com)

The United States Department of Justice is accelerating its antitrust probe into Apple and there is increased likelihood that Apple will face an antitrust lawsuit, reports The Information.

Citing internal sources with knowledge of the investigation, The Information says there has been a “flurry” of activity as the DOJ has continued to question Apple, its customers, and its competitors about Apple’s control over the iPhone. The DOJ sent new subpoenas to Apple’s business partners over the summer, and has assigned more staff to the probe.

Specifics have yet to be nailed down, but The Information‘s sources believe that the investigation will lead to a lawsuit. Apple has been under investigation by the DOJ for two years now, and the probe is part of a broad investigation that has seen the Justice Department looking into Apple, Google, Facebook, and Amazon.

The DOJ has spoken with Apple critics that include Spotify, Match Group, Basecamp, and Tile, all companies unhappy with Apple’s App Store policies and control.

Attorneys involved in the probe will eventually give the Department of Justice a recommendation on whether or not to file a lawsuit against Apple, but no formal recommendation has been made at this point in time, and there’s still a possibility that no case will be filed as the investigation is ongoing.

Apple recently came out largely ahead in its lawsuit with Epic Games and the judge decided that Apple had not violated U.S. antitrust law, but The Information‘s sources say that the DOJ’s investigation is broader because it is also examining issues like Sign in With Apple, App Tracking Transparency, and location tracking restrictions, so the Epic loss will not hinder a potential DOJ case.

More on Privacy, Apple TV, and More – 24/7 Wall St. – AppleTV 4 Jailbreak (appletv4jailbreak.com)

When Apple Inc. (NASDAQ: AAPL) announced its plan to release a program that scans for images of child sexual abuse, there was immediate pushback from academics and privacy groups. Late Thursday, an Apple software vice president, Sebastien Marineau-Mes, distributed an internal memo emphasizing the company’s commitment both to protecting children and to people’s privacy.

9to5Mac obtained a copy of the memo and reprinted it in its entirety on Friday. Marineau-Mes said, in part, “What we announced today [the Expanded Children’s Protection Program] is the product … that delivers tools to protect children, but also maintain[s] Apple’s deep commitment to user privacy.”

The memo goes to say that the company has received many positive comments and that “more than a few” people expressed concerns about the implications of the program. Among the positive comments, Marineau-Mes included in the memo an email from the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children (NCMEC) addressed to “Team Apple” and thanking them for “the incredible decisions you have made in the name of prioritizing child protection.”

In his weekly newsletter posted Sunday, Bloomberg’s Mark Gurman suggests that the “Apple TV box has lost its purpose as content moves to more devices.” This despite an upgrade to Apple TV in April. Why should even the staunchest Apple customer pay $199 for something that costs too much for too little return? Now that every streaming service is available on every device, the Apple TV box offers little, if anything, in the way of exclusive content.

The one thing Apple TV does offer is tight integration with loyalists: “Integration with HomeKit, Fitness+, AirPods and the iOS remote app is useful. The new remote control and faster chip in this year’s version are definite improvements, and the box is getting SharePlay and Spatial Audio support later this year.”

Now that Apple has closed the first half of 2021 with year-over-year revenue growth of nearly 54% in the March quarter and more than 36% in the June quarter, what can investors look forward to in the second half of the year?

Loup Venture analysts Gene Munster and David Stokman have put together a report on seven major tech companies, including Apple, comparing revenue growth in the second half of 2019 to expected growth in the second half of 2021. In the final six months of 2019, Apple’s revenue grew by just 5.4%, the lowest of all but one of the companies included in Loup’s comparison (Tesla had a loss in the second half of 2019).

Munster and Stokman estimate that Apple’s revenue will rise by 18.4% in the back half of this year, better than three of its peers: Netflix’s projected 16.5% increase; Amazon, up 15.3%; and Microsoft, up 14.2%. Apple trails Tesla (expected increase of 42.8%), Google (up 30%) and Facebook (up 29.7%). The analysts base their estimates for Apple on “a multiyear 5G upgrade cycle and the accelerating digital transformation, including work and learn from anywhere.”

That’s not to say that the project will be limited to the Korean market. Quite the contrary, the six-episode Korean-language series will see its premiere in Korea on Apple TV+ Thursday, November 4, which works out to Wednesday, November 3 in the United States.

The inaugural trailer for “Dr. Brain” is embedded right ahead.

New episodes are scheduled to arrive weekly through December 10, 2021.

Based on the popular Korean webtoon of the same name

A press release on the Apple website describes “Dr. Brain” as a project that’s based on the popular Korean webtoon of the same name. As we told you before, “Dr. Brain” is an emotional journey revolving around a scientist who suffers a horrific personal tragedy and is on a mission to figure out what happened to his family, which apparently involves conducting brain syncs with the dead to access their memories for clues.

“Dr. Brain” follows a brain scientist who is obsessive about figuring out new technologies to access the consciousness and memories of the brain. His life goes sideways when his family falls victim to a mysterious accident, and he uses his skills to access memories from his wife’s brain to piece together the mystery of what actually happened to his family and why.

And now with the inaugural trailer published, we can get a feel for the project’s atmosphere and storytelling. The series was directed and executive produced by filmmaker KIM Jee-woon, starring LEE Sun-kyun (“Parasite”), LEE You-young, PARK Hee-soon, SEO Ji-hye and LEE Jae-won.

Apple TV+ and Apple TV 4K coming to Korea on November

According to Apple’s announcement, both the Apple TV+ video-streaming service along with the company’s Apple TV 4K media streamer will launch in South Korea alongside “Dr. Brain” from Thursday, November 4, 2021.

CoolStar shares details about how Odyssey Team will incorporate new Fugu14 untether into Taurine jailbreak – AppleTV 4 Jailbreak (appletv4jailbreak.com)

Just yesterday, security researcher Linus Henze released his much anticipated Fugu14 untether for iOS & iPadOS 14.5.1 and below. Just minutes later, Pwn20wnd published unc0ver v7.0.0 with preliminary support for the untether, assuming users wanted to install it manually.

While unc0ver’s preliminary support for the Fugu14 untether is very much intended for developers only in its current form, CoolStar reaffirmed over the weekend via the Sileo / Taurine / Odyssey Discord channel that the Odyssey Team would take a different approach to updating Taurine to support the Fugu14 untether on supported device and firmware combinations.

More specifically, where the unc0ver v7.0.0 release requires end users to perform precursor steps to install and run the Fugu14 untether before deploying the unc0ver jailbreak app, the Odyssey Team intends to package the Fugu14 untether directly into the Taurine jailbreak in its initial support release to make the process more user-friendly as opposed to developer-centric from the start.

In separate comments made elsewhere in Discord, CoolStar alluded to the idea of first adding Fugu14 untether support to Taurine for devices that already work with the untether right out of the box, namely arm64e (iPhone XS and newer) devices running iOS or iPadOS 14.3-14.5.1.

Later on, the Odyssey Team would be taking a look at implementing support for the untether on older arm64 (iPhone X and older) devices in what could only be described as a divided release schedule.

It’s clear from the comments that the installation process would be different for arm64 devices And arm64e devices, but it isn’t yet clear if this means that there would be two separate jailbreak tools or merely different processes in the lone Taurine jailbreak app. Nothing is set in stone yet, however.

CoolStar added that because of generous donations from jailbreakers, the Odyssey Team was able to subscribe to Corellium’s powerful virtualization tools and can therefore test the untether on various devices that the team doesn’t have physical access to. This may help advance further development beyond those devices currently supported by the Fugu14 untether right out of the box.

While there isn’t yet an ETA for the Odyssey Team’s final release(s), we do advise those interested in trying the untether to refrain from using unc0ver v7.0.0 until the tool receives an update to fully package the untether into the jailbreak. We say this because the precursor steps are intended for experienced developers and can be both complex and dangerous if you don’t know what you’re doing.

As of right now, jailbreak developers should have everything they need to begin implementing the untether into their jailbreak tools, so it merely comes down to time. With that in mind, patience is strongly advised.

Are you as excited to see what materializes as a result of the new Fugu14 untether as we are? Let us know down in the comments section below.
