There a lot of indications that show that a new version of the Apple TV is set to launch this year. In a Periscope video that was published by Bloomberg’s Mark Gurman on 21st of April, he believes that a new Apple TV will be launched this year. To further strengthen this belief of Gurman, Jon Prosser – a prolific leaker tweeted on May 7 that a new Apple TV is about to be released. With the Apple TV 4K set to be launched, there are several expectations of its features and specifications.

It is however generally expected that this new version will be powered by an A14 chip similar to that which powers the iPhone 12 or an A12 chip similar to that of the 2018 iPad Pro. This has resulted in the speculation of it likely to be launched alongside iPhone 12 sometimes in September or October 2020.

Revealed Specifications

  • Processor: There are power consuming services that have been incorporated into the Apple TV and as such, there is an expected upgrade of its processor. The New Apple TV 4K is said to either feature next-generation processor like the A14 expected to arrive with iPhone 12 later this year or A12 processor. The A12 processor is what is used in the 2018 iPad Pro.
  • Hard Drive: The storage allocation has been a major challenge of previous versions of the Apple TV and has resulted in movies being streamed alone and not downloadable. This has been criticized by many Apple TV owners as it forces them to stream a movie without providing them with a download option. The new Apple TV 4K to be launched is expected to come with a 256GB storage capacity, a slight improvement on the previous version. This is most probably because Apple users stream contents and save them on iCloud other than downloading it.
  • Mac Mini Apple TV: Another specification of the Apple TV 4K to be launched is the possibility of the TV app arriving on the Mac, the Mac Mini and other devices.
