This should make the colors of the Apple TV look even more real and lively.
The Apple TV is operated with the Siri Remote, which was completely redesigned this year.

In fact, Apple introduces a new iMac: The new computer is designed entirely around the M1 chip from Apple and comes in many different colors.
The screen is extremely thin (11.5 centimeters) and should work incredibly quietly.
It has a display that is 24 inches in size and has 11.4 million pixels.
This should make all images appear brilliant and lively.
Especially the camera and the speakers are said to have been improved on the new iMac.
The Facetime camera has 1080P and a larger sensor.
The speakers have been given more power to produce more accurate and louder sounds.
This should be audible especially with bass-containing sound.
There are a total of six speakers built into the iMac.
You can choose between three keyboards for the iMac: A normal Magic Keyboard, a Magic Keyboard with Touch ID and a Magic Keyboard with Touch ID and a number pad.
The mice will also be available in different colours and have been designed to be extremely thin and dynamic.
The iMac is said to cost between $ 1299 and $ 1499.
It can be ordered from April 30th and will hit the market in the second half of May.
As expected by many, Apple is also introducing the new iPads Pro, which now also have the M1 chip.
What does this mean for iPads?
For the tablets, this means better performance.
The CPU is said to be 50 percent faster than the previous iPads Pro.
In addition, the display is clearer and sharper than ever with up to 40 percent improved graphics performance.
Pro for gamers: Games should run faster and better and are supported by four speakers.
A PS5 controller can also be connected to the tablet.
Storage and connection
The iPad Pro is now equipped with up to 2 terabytes of storage space.
In addition, the tablet now has 5G technology.
The iPad Pro is now equipped with a better camera and has a LiDAR scanner.
The front camera is a TrueDepth camera that can automatically unlock the tablet with Face ID.
The system has also been expanded with a new 12MP ultra-wide-angle camera.
With a new feature called “Center Stage”, the camera makes it possible to always keep the protagonist in the center in a video.
The iPad Pro has a liquid retina XDR display with almost 4 million pixels.
The tablet also has a new mini-LED system, which makes it possible to integrate more than 10,000 LEDs into the screen.
This makes the tablet brighter and allows colors to be reproduced more precisely and more realistically.
The whole device should still be only 6.4 millimeters thin.
The new iPad Pro can be ordered from April 30th.
It will be available in the second half of May.
The device costs between 799 and 1099 dollars.
