The Apple TV 4K is Apple’s answer to all of the other 4K streamers that came before it from the likes of Roku, Amazon, and Google Chromecast. It got off to a bit of a rough start: Our initial review deducted some points for the device’s unfortunate habit of getting stuck in HDR mode. The problem was resolved with the release of tvOS 11.2, and we’ve updated our score to reflect this. The Apple TV 4K is still not perfect, and it’s much pricier than similarly appointed devices now on the market, like Roku’s Streaming Stick+.
This little black box does a few key things better than its competition, however, especially if you’re a heavy Apple user. Follow below to see if the Apple TV 4K is right for you.
