While rolling out its Apple TV 4K previously coupled with the new iPhone smartphones, Apple did not claim anything if the streaming gadget will arrive with surround sound tech from Dolby Atmos out of the box or not. On the other hand, as per sources, the streaming box will be receiving the audio update in the coming period as a fraction of the tvOS upgrade.
“Apple also does not back standards of modern surround sound such as DTS:X and Dolby Atmos, which position sound effects around you in 3D space,” claimed the sources to the media in an interview. “Apple claimed me that the shortage of Atmos is not a hardware restriction, and that support is in the pipeline,” he further added.
It is not obvious as to when the company aims of giving its 4K TV streaming box this support. Apple TV 4K has a price tag of $179 for 32 GB version and a price tag of $199 for the 64 GB version in the U.S. Apple TV is the video-streaming box of the company and Apple TV 4K is an update over the earlier production of the gadgets. As the name recommends, Apple TV 4K displays videos in high quality 4K resolution.
It arrives with Dolby vision along with support to 4K HDR 10. The Cupertino-located tech giant has also refurbished the user interface of Apple TV. The updated streaming box arrives with CPU with graphics 4 x faster and performance 2x faster. Fueled by A10X processor of Apple, the Apple TV 4K has a price tag of Rs 15,900 for 32 GB and a price tag of Rs 17,900 for the 64 GB version.
