The Next Apple TV Will Come with the iPad Pro’s Processor

So if you didn’t hear over the weekend, the iOS 11 Gold Master build leaked on the internet. Developers got their hands on it, and they unveiled details surrounding the iPhone X, Apple Watch Series 3 with LTE, and new AirPods. Now comes the upcoming 4K Apple TV, and as Steve T-S over on Twitter notes, the next-gen set-top-box will ship with a pretty powerful processor.

As you can see in the tweet above, the developer says the 4K Apple TV will come with Apple’s A10X Fusion processor currently found in this year’s iPad Pro lineup alongside 3GB of RAM. This chipset/RAM combo is seriously packed to the gills with power, and the new Apple TV will need it if rumors suggesting the box will be capable of pushing 4K HDR content to televisions come to pass. Steve T-S goes on to note that the new TV will also likely be capable of projecting 4K video at 60 frames per second, a recording standard expected to ship on the company’s new iPhones.

We expect to hear more details surrounding the new Apple TV tomorrow during Apple’s big event. Stay tuned.
