    It's interesting Samsung's new Gear Sport watches don't have an LTE option.
  • Roger Cheng 9/12/2017 5:39:19 PM
    Only Samsung's Gear S3 has an LTE option.
  • Roger Cheng 9/12/2017 5:39:41 PM
    It'll be interesting to see if the carriers make the connected device plan cheaper for this.

    Now for Apple TV.

    In the early days of Apple TV, the company positioned its streaming media box as a “hobby.” Still, it was the most popular device of its kind, even without getting a hardware refresh for three years. Apple finally updated Apple TV in late 2015, releasing it with new software -- tvOS -- that lets developer make apps, and a new remote that works with Siri. Apple also boosted the starting price to $149 from $99.

    Apple TV next. I'm still thinking about Apple Watch. Curious about how many apps will work. No watch face store announced.
  • Roger Cheng 9/12/2017 5:40:40 PM
    Cook says there have been key inflection points for watching TV, from black and white to color and HD, etc.
  • Roger Cheng 9/12/2017 5:40:50 PM
    Each stage brought with it a more true-to-life experience, he says.
  • Roger Cheng 9/12/2017 5:40:57 PM
    Now we're at the next major inflection point, Cook says.
  • Roger Cheng 9/12/2017 5:41:18 PM
    Cook introduces Apple TV 4K.
  • Roger Cheng 9/12/2017 5:41:25 PM
    Hey, welcome to the 4K world, Apple.
  • Scott Stein 9/12/2017 5:41:37 PM
    Ok, TV. It is called Apple TV 4K, which is, well, hey, it happened.
  • David Katzmaier 9/12/2017 5:41:37 PM
  • Roger Cheng 9/12/2017 5:41:47 PM
    Eddy Cue, senior vice president of internet software and services, is on stage.
  • Roger Cheng 9/12/2017 5:41:54 PM
    There are two big advancements in picture quality.
  • Roger Cheng 9/12/2017 5:42:01 PM
    The first is in 4K.
  • Roger Cheng 9/12/2017 5:42:10 PM
    4K has four times the number of pixels as HD, Cue says.
  • David Katzmaier 9/12/2017 5:42:12 PM
  • Roger Cheng 9/12/2017 5:42:20 PM
    Cue talks about high dynamic range, or HDR.
  • David Katzmaier 9/12/2017 5:42:30 PM
  • Roger Cheng 9/12/2017 5:42:31 PM
    If 4K is about more pixels, HDR is about better pixels, he says.
  • Roger Cheng 9/12/2017 5:42:40 PM
    Apple TV supports industry standard HDR 10 and Dolby Vision, Cue says.
  • Scott Stein 9/12/2017 5:42:51 PM
    4K is good! Many of us like it. Also, HDR. Showing the types of demos that most companies have been doing regarding 4K for a while.
  • David Katzmaier 9/12/2017 5:42:54 PM
  • Roger Cheng 9/12/2017 5:43:00 PM
    Cue another video to show of the Apple TV 4K

    Talks about the crispness and sharpness in Apple TV video.
  • Scott Stein 9/12/2017 5:43:41 PM
    4K screen savers. I mean, it's hard to appreciate from a theater screen.
  • Roger Cheng 9/12/2017 5:43:47 PM
    The icons and user interface have been redone to take advantage of 4K, Cue says.
  • David Katzmaier 9/12/2017 5:43:51 PM
  • Roger Cheng 9/12/2017 5:44:18 PM
    Now we're watching a clip from "Spiderman: Homecoming."
  • Roger Cheng 9/12/2017 5:44:21 PM
    In 4K, of course.
  • David Katzmaier 9/12/2017 5:44:26 PM
  • David Katzmaier 9/12/2017 5:44:49 PM
  • Scott Stein 9/12/2017 5:44:55 PM
    This also means 4K iTunes content will spread across other Apple devices, I'd imagine, which would be nice.
  • Roger Cheng 9/12/2017 5:45:05 PM
    That video was running on the Apple TV 4K.
  • Roger Cheng 9/12/2017 5:45:16 PM
    The Apple TV 4K gets the A10X fusion ship, the same as the new iPad Pro, Cue says.
  • Scott Stein 9/12/2017 5:45:17 PM
    iPad Pro equivalent processor onboard.
  • Roger Cheng 9/12/2017 5:45:28 PM
    New Apple TV is twice as fast and graphics is four times as fast. It runs TV OS.
