Apple left the 1st Generation Apple TV behind as of May 25, 2018. You can no longer connect it directly to iTunes. Even if you attempt to sync authorized content to it through an authorized Mac, it’s over.
One of the biggest releases in iOS history, iOS 4 brought many new features, including FaceTime.
There are lots of convenience and “smart” features these days when it comes to your TV viewing experience. One of the greatest features has traditionally been the ability to control a wide variety of devices with one. This began with the time tested universal remote control that still dominates many home theater set-ups today.
Apple reinvented Apple TV in Late 2015, no longer hiding the fact that it has an operating system. The 4G Apple TV has a 64-bit A8 CPU and a full-fledge operating system, known as tvOS. It’s also designed to run games and includes Siri.
After years of disguising the fact that Apple TV had a real operating system, with the 4th generation device, Apple is all over it – even renaming it tvOS.
In January 2013, Apple introduced a revised version of the 3rd generation Apple TV, this time with an updated A5 chip that also included an improved graphics processor.
Could Apple TV save you money over Dish Network?
After 1-1/2 years on the market, the second generation Apple TV was replaced by the third generation, which looks exactly the same.
Four years after introducing the original Apple TV, Apple introduced the second generation, taking a new direction with its smaller, more affordable device – one-third the cost of the original!
Sometimes it takes a while to put one and one together to make two. In this case, the iPhone plus Apple TV equals the future of computing.
In 2001, Apple expanded into music with the iPod. In 2007, into television with Apple TV. But the original Apple TV was a lot different than the compact models we’ve seen since.
