New Apple TV runs tvOS

As expected Apple has unveiled the new Apple TV.

Apple believes the future of TV is apps. All rumors have been true. Apple TV is all about apps and comes with a new remote control with touch pad. Siri is as expected at the center of the Apple TV 4.

You can ask Siri to show for instance funny TV shows. The new Apple TV has a completely new user interface that looks very smooth. As reported earlier, Siri is supporting universal search. Siri can search Netflix, Showtime, HBO, Hulu and iTunes. Siri even finds TV episodes that featured a certain actor as a guest.

Siri also can be used to move forward and backwards in a video. The demos show that Siri is working very conversational. She keeps the context of what users have searched before.

The Apple TV will have animated screen savers and supports Apple Music.

Apple TV runs on tvOS. The new Apple tvOS is based on iOS. Apple showed off apps from Netflix, HBO, Hulu and also several games.

The Siri Remote works via Bluetooth 4.0. The battery lasts for 3 months on a single charge.

The Apple TV 32GB sells for $149 and the Apple TV 64GB sells for $199. The new Apple TV starts selling in October.
