Background and Identification ¶ 

Apple released the fourth generation Apple TV three years after the previous model. On the outside, it's about 150% larger than its predecesor, measuring in at 1.4 inches tall and 3.9 inches across with the same matte black shell. Notable hardware upgrades include an Apple 64-bit A8 processor, bluetooth compatibility, and 2GB of RAM. Also new to this model is a TV app store open to third-party developers. This model is available in either 32 GB or 64 GB versions.

The TV remote, now called the Siri Remote, also saw some major upgrades, including Bluetooth 4.0, an accelerometer-gyroscope combo, and a touch-sensitive glass panel.
