Apple TV 4K with HDR Spotted in HomePod Firmware
Apple’s HomePod firmware continues to shed light on the company’s future product roadmap, with now more evidence pointing to a 4K Apple TV with HDR.
The reference was spotted by iOS developer Guilherme Rambo, who noticed references to a 4K Apple TV with HDR, plus support for both HDR10 and Dolby Vision:
Last month, signs of a 4K Apple TV were theorized after iTunes purchase history for some customers noted listings in both 4K and HDR.
Apple’s current fourth-gen Apple TV does not support 4K, rather only 1080P.
HomePod firmware has already leaked the iPhone 8 front display design, plus references to “Pearl ID” face recognition, which may support Apple Pay. Earlier this week, developers found references to 4K video at 60 FPS for both the front and rear iPhone 8 cameras in HomePod firmware as well.
Are you ready for a 4K Apple TV?
