Apple TV was last upgraded with Apple TV 4K in September 2017, more than 3 years ago. Bloomberg's reliable Mark Gurman has previously reported that the company was planning to launch upgraded Apple TV hardware in 2021. So what can we expect from an upgraded Apple TV? Some have suggested that it will feature an "A14X-like" SoC while others have said that it will feature the A12X/Z SoC. Some have even suggested that Apple has been developing its own game controller and that it is investing heavily in its game service, Apple Arcade.
