Apple TV

The fourth-generation Apple TV adds an App Store, opening up the availability of third-party apps and games to a wider degree. The remote also has motion capabilities, opening it up as a game device.

Introduction

Announced at Apple's September 2015 special event, the Fourth Generation of the Apple TV is a considerable upgrade from the previous versions of the device, which were smaller and solely focused on playing and streaming media files using Apple-authored apps.

The new version of the system uses a subset of Apple's iOS mobile operating system known as tvOS, along with the A8 system-on-a-chip utilized in the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus, and a new "Siri Remote" that includes a motion sensor, microphone and touch pad. As a result, Apple has released SDKs that allow for development of apps and games for the platform.
