Apple has redesigned the Apple TV, and the newest generation Apple TV has caught a lot of interest from both users and developers. It features a newly designed remote, newer internals, and apps that developers can design for and give users on their TV’s. This newest fourth-generation device has been talked about alot, but Apple has finally made is available for ordering from their site on Monday.
Apple made the fourth-generation Apple TV device available for $149 for the 32GB model and $199 for the 64GB model. They are looking to ship at the end of this week according to the site, and will launch in a number of countries. It is looking to launch in the US, UK, Canada, and Australia at first, and then up to 80 more before long. The Siri remote will limit the amount of countries though, as only a dozen can interpret the languages properly.
Along with the Apple TV, Apple is selling the unit with a new Apple TV Siri Remote for $79, and a Remote Loop for $12.99. Users looking to connect it to their TV’s won’t get an HDMI cable inside though, and will need to buy one separately from Apple or online retailers.
With its new design, touch surface on the remote, voice dsearch, a new App Store, and emerging content, it could be a gamechanger for many who love Apple and the iTunes ecosystem. The aops will arrive soon and with that the reviews, and hopefully those will make the Apple TV sell for Apple, and keep those looking at Roku and other devices away. The holiday season is quickly approaching, and Apple is looking to build revenues with the Apple TV, and give users a new way to enjoy apps on their TV’s.
