Apple May Be Focusing On Gaming For Its Next Apple TV


#Apple TV was one of the notable absences from #Apple’s many product announcements this year. #But new reports suggest that big changes could be coming for the next generation of the #Apple box.

The future of #Apple TV is gaming

#According to #Bloomberg’s #Mark #Gurman, the next #Apple TV will have a heavy focus on gaming.

“For next year, #Apple is planning an upgraded box with a stronger gaming focus, an updated remote and a new processor.”

#Gurman suggests that in order for the #Apple TV to remain competitive with other streaming boxes, it needs to apply some big changes from the last model. #Or drop the price. #Gaming seems to be that change.

#It also looks like the next-gen #Apple TV will finally be released in 2021, after a 3-year absence.

The move to focus on gaming makes sense seeing as #Apple has put a lot of work into its #Apple #Arcade platform. #Apple #Arcade offers a range of exclusive games often in party or mini-game genres. #It can be accessed as a standalone subscription for $7.99 a month or can be bundled with the #Apple #One subscription.

#Users can play #Apple #Arcade games via their desktop, mobile or third-party controllers – or they can use the #Apple TV remote. #But as many know, the #Apple TV remote is quite restrictive and isn’t the easiest accessory to use, particularly for gaming. #An updated remote is what the #Apple TV desperately needs and one with better gaming functionality would be a logical step.

A new processor is also a promising sign for the next #Apple TV. #Earlier leaks from 9to5 #Mac have suggested that the new #Apple TV will feature an A14 chip, which is also used in the iPhone 12. #This would significantly boost the #Apple TV’s processing power and graphical performance.

#With a lot of attention on the release of new consoles this year, it’s a smart move for #Apple to play to its gaming strengths. #It looks like #Apple could potentially treat its new box as a gaming console and focus on better graphical power and a better ‘controller’ in 2021 to set itself apart.
