The interesting thing here is that it was found out that the A8 chipset sporting iPhone 6 actually could handle a 4K video just fine. So whether they have announced anything or not, HDMI 1.4 and the A8 chip is in theory at least capable in themselves of handling some variation of 4K content.Why didnt they shove the new A9X in it, as that can obviously cope with 4K.
Very poor .
More immediately there are questions I'd like answered..
1. Can the new Apple TV actually output 1080p/24 now.
2. Does the "Universal search" function work for only "channel partners" such as Netflix, or will it work with App Store content providers who manage to tie in with Spotlight search.
3. How does Universal search and the newer UI handle "family purchases". If I search for say Mad Max Fury Road, will it highlight that somebody else in my family has already purchased it and just let me play it directly or will it just give me the straightforward purchase screen.
4. Now that the device is at least capable of Dolby Digital Plus, will the store itself start encoding releases to take advantage of the extra bitrate available to it or vanilla Dolby Digital.
5. Will Universal Search pick up on content that is connected via iTunes on a PC. Say I search for "inception", will it acknowledge that I already have that content on an available machine on the network. Basically will "computer" be tied into Spotlight search and be asked for its results along with Netflix and co.
6. Will the new Apple TV see content over a standard network share, or is it DLNA compliant.
Just a few things off the top of my head..
