MacRumors’s Joe Rossignol reports that iTunes purchase history now lists if movies are 4K/HDR compatible, giving credence to the idea of a 4K/HDR-enabled Apple TV in the offing:
It’s conceivable that Apple could launch 4K content in iTunes alongside a new Apple TV with support for up to 4K video output and HDR, or high dynamic range, which allows for sharper colors and lighting. The current, fourth-generation Apple TV has a maximum 1080p video output, and no support for HDR.
Certainly feels like a good day to theorize about the future of the Apple TV.
