Apple has long been criticized for not issuing a new smart television. While the company continues to develop the tvOS 14.5 software for users, the 9to5Mac platform showed early what innovations the update, which is still in beta, will bring. Support for 120 Hz resolution appeared among the software codes. It came to mind that the company was working on a new Apple TV model.
While it’s unclear what Apple can use the 120Hz refresh rate on a new Apple TV for, one of the intriguing possibilities, such as the PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X, is thought to be more fluid gaming. Due to the recent increased interest in gaming, it is foreseen that the new Apple TV will have more game-oriented features.
Apple TV may take a more gaming-oriented approach
Apple has added a number of new games to its Apple Arcade gaming subscription service, which allows you to play games on iPhone, iPad, Mac and Apple TV and move your progress across platforms. In addition, all iOS 14.5, macOS 11.3, and tvOS 14.5 betas include support for PlayStation 5’s DualSense controller and Xbox Series X controller.
Support for 120 Hz was to be released in December, according to a report for Apple TV. But Apple is allegedly working on a “stronger gaming focus” on a new TV this year.
This report also states that the new set-top box will have a redesigned remote control, which will be easier to use. Although we do not know exactly when Apple will announce this rumored device, if you are thinking of buying a new Apple TV, you may want to wait a while.
