Talking about Apple TV, it was first launched back in 2017. Now, it is getting a big refresh with Apple TV 4K. Apple TV 4K is updated with the A12 Bionic and it can now play HDR at higher frame rates. This allows videos to play more smoothly and appear more lifelike than ever before. In the reinvented Apple TV, the company has also enhanced AirPlay to support high frame rate HDR. To add more to the excitement, they even redesigned the remote with the iPod-esque scroll wheel.
Brand New iMacs
Wow, Just look at the color. There has never been a more exciting time for the Mac. This is a good time to shift over from iMac to M1.

The new laptop is considerably smaller, measuring just 11.5mm thick, and appears from the side to be a massive tablet. Apple also silently adds a 2TB option and 10GB ethernet option to the M1 Mac Mini.
