4K Apple TV w/ HDR is great, but I'm guessing the audio support will still suck, making it a bad choice for home theater folks. 🤷🏻♂️
Other issue: the Apple TV remote is utter garbage. That said, I use a good universal remote in my home theater anyway.
I wouldn't be surprised if, in Jony Ive form, the Apple TV remote is now a black rectangle w/ no visible features like the 2001 monolith.
Final Apple TV 4K thought: $179? Way too high. By nearly double.
Ready to see the iPhone X.
According to Apple's specs page for the Apple TV, it still only supports E-AC-3 (Dolby Digital Plus 7.1) at most. Lame.
Save the righteous indignation re: the price of the iPhone X. For most people, their phone is the most used and important computer.
