Apple TV 4K Looks to Include New Remote with Haptic Feedback


The iOS 11 GM leak has revealed the upcoming Apple TV 4K will feature a three-core A10X Fusion CPU, along with 3GB of RAM, up from the previous A8 and 2GB of RAM in the current Apple TV 4.

Now, we’re hearing this 4K Apple TV model will include possibly a new remote—capable of haptic feedback, according to Guilherme Rambo, who has been diving deep into the iOS 11 GM.

According to 9to5Mac, Apple’s existing Siri Remote is backordered 2-3 weeks on (and in Canada), suggesting a new model may be announced soon.

Apple TV 4K is also said to support HDR (high dynamic range) and Dolby Vision. No word on how much this new model will cost, but our guess is it may cost more than the existing Apple TV 4 model.

We’ll find out all the details tomorrow at the company’s special event at the Steve Jobs Theater at Apple Park.

    Good, because their last attempt at a remote left a lot to be desired. It’s like their ill-fated puck mouse – can’t tell if you’re holding the thing in the right orientation.

  • This is so true. It annoys me every time and I refuse to put a rubber band or sticker on the thing.

    Actually, that’s not a bad idea – I’m going to put some stickers on it – that’ll solve the orientation problem (at least in daylight). Since it doesn’t have a backlight, I’ll make them glow-in-the-dark stickers. And maybe I’ll glue some buttons onto the touchpad because that was a dumb idea too. My thumb actually got tired swiping through YouTube.

    But to be honest, I actually use my old Apple TV remote with it now – works great – just wish it had volume buttons.
