Apple launches its new Apple TV streaming device, Sky, on Sept. 15
Apple is unveiling its new TV streaming devices, Sky and Apple TV, on Wednesday.
Apple TV and Sky come in three different configurations, with a 5K, 1080p and 4K output.
Apple said in a release that the new devices “offer consumers the convenience and power of a TV with all of the features of a new streaming device,” but said they offer additional features like “a new voice search function, advanced photo and video editing features, and a new way to manage content.”
Sky, the new streaming media device that debuted in July, offers a 5k resolution, up to 1080p streaming, and an HDR picture-in-picture mode.
It’s available now in the United States, Canada and the United Kingdom, as well as some Asian countries.
The Apple TV comes in three models: the 4K, 5K and 1080p models.
The 4K model comes with 4K HDR resolution, while the 5K model can output 1080p HD video and 60 frames per second.
Apple says the new 4K models will “support 4K video and 5K audio.”
Apple said Sky’s new features include “a faster video playback experience, advanced voice search functionality, and support for Apple Pay, which allows you to buy content from Apple, the iTunes Store and other online retailers.”
The AppleTV 4K comes with a 4K resolution, 5.1 surround sound and 60-frames-per-second playback.
The new 4k Apple TV model also comes with an advanced voice recognition technology.
The 5K Apple TV models comes with 5K resolution and a 5.5 surround sound output.
Apple said the 5k Apple TVs will be available in the U.S., Canada, Europe, Australia, New Zealand, Hong Kong and South Korea.
Apple also unveiled new Apple Music streaming service, Apple Music Pro, in August, along with the new Apple Home app, which lets users listen to music from their iPhone, iPad or Mac and make appointments.
