Spotlight is on Universal Search in New Apple TV 4

A new report says that the new Apple TV will finally offer universal search.

More details about the new Apple TV 4 have surfaced ahead of the September 9 event. The new Apple TV will offer Universal Search, a feature the Amazon Fire TV already has. Users will be able to use Siri and just tell her what they want to watch. 

Universal Search will find content across different streaming services and iTunes. The search supports queries by title, actors and directors. This will be a huge improvement as finding content today on the Apple TV box requires typing and queries are run only across a single service.

Buzzfeed also reports that the Apple TV 4 will sell for $149. The remaining question is how much storage the Apple TV 4 will offer. According to a new 9to5Mac report, Apple is considering 8GB and 16GB for the $149 Apple TV box.

The current Apple TV has 8GB storage, which is considered as too limited for app downloads.

New Apple TV leaks include A8 CPU, which is the same as found in the iPhone 6. 9toMac also says that there are no changes in the port configuration for the new Apple TV. They reiterate that 4K will not be supported on the new Apple TV.

The new Apple TV is expected to be the star of the Apple Media event next week. Apple will stream the event live starting at 10am PDT on September 9.
