Before the announcement of AirPods Max, analysts still had hopes that Apple would have time to update the set-top box before the end of the year, but now it is clear that the sixth generation of Apple TV is moving to 2021.
According to Bloomberg expert Mark Gurman, this model will receive a new processor (most likely, Apple A13 Bionic or even A14 Bionic, as in the iPad Air 4 and iPhone 12). The complete remote control will also receive improvements. The gourmet also notes that the next generation should make the console attractive to gamers – no surprise given Apple is developing its Arcade service.
And although these updates will be pleasant, the author notes that this is still not enough for the console to be a serious competitor in the market. It should either become cheaper or offer new opportunities that no one else has – because now Apple TV takes only deep integration into the ecosystem.
