The fourth-generation Apple TV has a lot going for it. In the past couple of weeks I’ve used the Plex app to view video encoded in a format never before playable on Apple TV, had a Wii-style experience swinging along with Beat Sports, and enjoyed a lot of laughs with my family while playing several rounds of SketchParty TV.
Most of the complaints I’ve seen about the device have had more to do with setup in general, and the input of text like email addresses and passwords in particular, than with the rest of the device experience. My setup process was pretty rocky, for sure. And the shame is, it could’ve all been mitigated with the addition of one thing: my iPhone.
