Let me grab my remote.

 

Sweet, so Apple has recently released a new update for our Apple TVs (sorry but sticking an antenna onto an Apple is not really a TV).

 

And you know what? 

 

It is, in fact, a pretty worthwhile update, and here’s why:

 

The new tvOS 11 update brings quiet a lot of cool features with it like a automatic dark mode, Home screen syncing, support for your AirPods and well of course 4K HDR.

 

But of course if you wanna get 4K HDR you’re going to need to get your hands on the new Apple TV 4K (even tough you can update your 4th generation Apple TV to tvOS 11 though it doesn’t mean it can support 4K HDR since it does not have the hardware needed to support 4K HDR) and well a 4K TV if you want the full cinematic experience.

 

There’s a whole lot more features but you don’t worry about that for now and anyways you’ll be playing with your newly updated TV in just a matter of seconds.

 

Alright. Let’s get this over with.
