In early 2021, Apple updated the Apple TV 4K for the first time since 2017, and it was long overdue. Improvements included a new, faster processor that may make some Apple TV users happy -- but the real star of the show is a completely redesigned Siri Remote.
The new remote has a dedicated power button to control your TV, and the touchpad has been replaced with an iPod-like jog wheel. It remains to be seen if Apple added the ability to find the new remote using Siri. That would be useful for when it inevitably gets lost in your couch.
Enough about the remote, the Apple TV 4K will allow you to stream shows from every major streaming platform, play games available in the App Store or Apple Arcade and can stream Apple's Fitness Plus workouts.
The only downside of the Apple TV 4K is its price. Starting at $179 for 32GB of storage, or $199 for 64GB of storage, it's by far the most expensive streaming device on our list.
- Access to Apple's App Store
- A faster processor should future-proof the new box
