Apple TV 4K Comparison Guide - Understand the differences between the models
Apple TV 4K Comparison Guide – Understand the differences between the models
September 17, 2018 No Comments
When just looking at the specs between the Apple TV 4K, the 4th Generation model and older models, it can be difficult trying to understand what those differences actually mean to you and which upgrades are something you might actually benefit from. So in this article, you’ll not only get a complete list of all the differences between these two models, but you’ll also learn what each of these features do and how they could impact your viewing experience.
Now the biggest different between the 4K model and the one before it (4th Gen Apple TV) is that the 4K model supports 4K while the previous model only supports up to 1080p.
But below you can see a complete break down of what’s the same and what’s different as well as an explanation of how those differences may or may not really affect you.
Currently the Apple 4K TV is about $179 (32GB model), but you can click here to check the current best price or for any promotional discounts on either model.
Here’s a comparison of the different features each model has:
And if you’d like to get a quick summary of just the key differences between the 4K model and the previous 4th Generation model, you can skip to the end of this post for that.
PROCESSOR
The Apple TV 4K has an upgraded processor which is the same one used for the iPad Pro. What this means is that it’s adequately powered for playing back 4K content, it’s MUCH smoother for gaming and it’s snappier when navigating through menu’s and different content (compared to the 4th Gen Apple TV).
The 4th Gen Apple TV uses the A8 chip which is the same one used on the iPhone 6. Apps still run fine on both models as app developers are still targeting the 4th Gen Apple TV since this is what most people still have.
The bottom line here is that if you don’t have a 4K TV and don’t plan on getting one anytime soon, or if you’re not using your Apple TV for gaming, then the upgraded chip is really unnecessary and you’d be just fine with the 4th Gen model.
The only caveat to that is if you’re someone who wants to be able to navigate around menu’s and so forth as quickly as possible, then it would certainly be worth it to spend a few more dollars for the 4K model.

INTERFACES
Here’s where you’ll notice another change between the Apple 4K TV and the prior model. First, they removed the USB type C that used to be on the back of the 4th Gen model. This was something mostly used by developers or for those wanting to side-load their own applications (ie. emulators, etc.).
But this is an example of something the average consumer won’t miss or notice at all. However, if you are a developer then this is something you may want to consider if deciding between the two models.
One improvement though is that the 4K model now uses Gigabit ethernet instead of 100-megabit ethernet (for the 4th Gen model). This is important for 4K content as the amount of 4K content continues to rise (and possibly networks becoming more saturated) this is preparing for that future.
So while you may not have a need or see a benefit initially from this, it’s great to see they included that as it’s one less thing you’ll need to worry about upgrading in the future.
Finally, the HDMI connection has been upgraded to 2.0 with the 4K model to allow for the transmission of 4K content over an HDMI 2.0 cable. This is an **IMPORTANT** thing to note as Apple TV 4K does not come with a HDMI 2.0 or 4K compatible HDMI cable. That is something you’ll need to purchase separately.
And just to clarify, not all HDMI cables are 2.0. So if you already have an HDMI cable but it’s not an HDMI 2.0 cable, then you won’t get the full effect of your 4K content.
If you need to get an HDMI 2.0 cable, this is the one I’d recommend getting from Amazon that’s the best bang for your buck: https://amzn.to/2CXdrNQ

COMPARING APPLE TV 4K (5TH GEN) TO 4TH GEN APPLE TV
So what all this boils down to for most people is that the big difference with the newest and latest Apple TV is that it supports 4K. And watching 4K content does look noticeably clearer and sharper. If your newer to viewing 4K content, it’s awesome!
Aside from that, anyone that enjoys gaming with the Apple TV will notice an improved experience with the newer 4K model (due to the more powerful chip and a better frame rate).
The user interface looks cleaner but when it comes to launching apps, there’s almost no difference in the time it takes to load (though the 4K model is a tad quicker).
The Siri experience is the same on both.
Your movie library is updated to 4K for free which is very cool. So any movie in your iTunes library that has the option to watch it in 4K, you’ll get that for free without having to purchase the 4K version of that movie.
