The Apple TV app, one of the default apps included on iPhones and iPads, also syncs with the Apple TV 4K so that you can pick up a show on your mobile device at the same point where you stopped watching it on your television.

Arriving tomorrow, the Apple TV 4K also supports HDR content. And if your Internet speed isn't fast enough, the quality of video will be downgraded to what your connection can support.

The tech blog gave mixed reviews to Apple's latest set-top box, but still awarded it an overall rating of 7.5, saying Apple is "the only company that has the combination of power and care to actually do it". "An "Apple person" with a nice TV and a yen for improved image quality".

Apple succeeds in its main objective with this upgrade: 4K content looks great, on a 4K television set. Apple allows you to download a rental on one device and stream it on another: for example, you could rent something to watch on a flight and download a copy to your iPhone 8, then switch over to streaming the remainder to your Apple TV when you get home. Moreover, Apple is not charging users an extra amount for 4K content. 4K movies will be charged as much as the HD version.

Apple, however, has confirmed to The Verge, as well as other publications, that Dolby Atmos support is coming to the Apple TV 4K in the future, though a timeline for the features release was not revealed. The 4K Apple TV can run MP4, H.264, and HEVC (H.265) codecs. The Apple TV (4th generation) 32GB variant now costs Rs 12,900. If you've ever fumbled on the couch without your glasses for the Apple TV remote and found yourself holding it upside-down, you appreciate the new tactile differentiation.
