The new model is much like the older one but is slightly smaller when it comes to design. The 2022 Apple TV 4K features a 3.6-inch square case, which is relatively smaller than the 3.9-inch case on the previous model. Unlike its predecessor, the base model lacks a few features compared to the expensive model, this time around. The $129 model comes with Wi-Fi 6 only, whereas you’ll see an Ethernet port on the expensive one. The high-end model of the new Apple TV 4K also includes a Thread radio that is supposed to offer better smart home control. Aside from making changes in the design of the 2022 Apple TV 4K, Apple has upgraded also it with a modern A15 chipset. However, the company didn’t mention if it’s the same specced processor that is being used on the iPhone 13 and iPhone 14

Further, the new Apple TV 4K comes with support for Samsung’s HDR10+ standard, on both models. It also supports the Dolby Vision HDR standard that was previously supported by last year’s model. This ensures you’ll enjoy the full HDR experience for almost every content that you’re watching, which was not possible earlier.
