Apple TV with touch remote brings online shopping and games to the big screen
Anticipation for the Apple event has been brewing up in the technology arena and as presumed the next generation of Apple devices want to be more like what you always wanted. Apple TV is one gadget that was speculated to come with some major improvements and now at the Apple Event, CEO Tim Cook finally showed to the world what home entertainment means to Apple. The new Apple TV is going to have a major overhaul from the previous version with hardware and software applications tailor-made to enhance end-user experience.
The all new Apple TV based on refreshing tvOS and is going to be powered by a 64-bit A8 processor with focus on it being a gaming device too. Siri is also going to be the major tool for interactive search and it doesn’t come as a surprise that the device will be accompanied by a remote having touch surface to navigate/scroll/select through menus. All this will be coming to you in late October in two models; 32GB and 64GB both of which will be priced at $149 and $199 respectively.
The big bonus of new Apple TV is going to be the huge eco-system of apps with third-party developers and Apple themselves giving the users ample choices for games and other content. At the Apple event some of the games running on Apple TV like Crossy Roads and Beat Sports were shown off. Not only does the ecosystem of apps span across games, movies, Sports, TV series etc. but Apple is bringing portals like Gilt to bring online shopping to your big screen at home.
Apple definitely wants to bring all the entertainment to one hub and with the new Apple TV they are promising more that there was ever before. Also it will help them get clear of competition with new features like online shopping and other apps that increase the device’s utility just beyond watching your favorite TV series.
