New Apple TV could support 120Hz video output, beta code suggests
Apple’s next-generation Apple TV could support 120Hz video output, with code from the latest tvOS beta referencing “120Hz and “supports120Hz” as rumors point to a new model of the set-top-box being announced within the coming weeks.
As discovered by 9to5Mac, the 120Hz video references sit inside PineBoard, Apple’s name for the Apple TV interface.
The current range of Apple TV models do not have the hardware capable of streaming 120Hz 4K content, with it understood now that the updated model will use HDMI 2.1., which unlike HDMI 2.0, used for the current fifth-generation Apple TV 4K, is not limited to to 4K resolution at 60Hz.
Apple’s next Apple TV will be the “Apple TV 6.” The box is said to be launching alongside a redesigned remote, which may have Find My support, to allow users to locate their missing remote around the home by using the Find My app on iPhone or iPad.
