Jonny Evans thinks there’s life in Apple TV.
Apple’s one-time “hobby” is a bit like the White Walkers in Game of Thrones — it just keeps coming back, So, what’s coming up in the next episode?
The comeback king? Remember, Apple is a hardware company.
iTunes Movies recently showed 4K on purchase receipts; Apple has adopted HEVC, which is really effective for high res television; while HomePod code suggests the company is about to shove 4K, HDR and Dolby Vision inside.
These high-end video codecs will probably demand faster processors inside Apple TV — A10 should do the trick? This will enable better games and more immersive entertainment experiences, potentially including some ARKit solutions.
What’s coming? How about Apple TV Channel, channels as apps, HomeKit center, FaceTime camera, ARKit apps, and yet another Apple hardware device to buy.
