Apple TV: the Future has not come

It’s time to talk about Apple TV: in March 2019 these cute boxes were sentenced. Revolution in television, the necessity of which 12 years were saying Apple was over before it started. Several times it was on the brink, in September 2015 it is announced – but something went wrong again.

Actually, I just wanted to tell you about the fourth-generation Apple TV, tvOS and its SDK. September 9, 2015 “the future of television” paid half hour. As much as the iPad Pro or the iPhone 6s/6s+. More than anything else.

It was a special Apple TV, which now was accompanied by an entire ecosystem (tvOS, SDK, App Store, remote support Siri). Complete platform with the tools in Xcode (which was the simulator for the Apple TV) and a powerful ambition. Apple wanted to announce tvOS revolution in television – but the revolution or the Apple TV 4G or tvOS 9, no TVMLKit or trainer for pedestrians (Crossy Road) is not pulled.

As would be the case with personal computers, if in 1984 appeared the Mac? And what would be the smartphones and tablets if not iPhone and iPad? If it were not for Apple, what would be the laptops, stores programs and music publishing systems, and much more? Television – bright and clear example of this.

Apple tried to humanize and television. The first Apple TV was announced along with the iPhone. Apple Computer was “simply Apple” due to the fact that the major platforms (iPod, iPhone and Apple TV) were not related to computers. It was all very serious, but something important did not realize, and Apple TV has become a “hobby”.

Why? Why did they miss their chance, again and again – and by March 2019 were forced to “move focus to the Apple TV+”, because the market of such devices, the share of Apple was disappointingly frivolous: 13%.

I just wanted to tell you about the fourth-generation Apple TV, but without his backstory opus has not evolved, pelucas flat and indistinct. Go at it on occasion.

This is the beginning of a mini-series about Apple TV.

Who led the project?

From the heads of most of the other major companies Steve jobs distinguished by attention to the most insignificant at first glance, detail. He was personally involved in all more or less important projects. His influence is hard to overestimate.

But he wasn’t even an engineer. He was fantastic, almost infallible flair. Some unknown science the way he usually knew what “go” and what not. That view often do not agree (in the shower) – but he was able to get.

And a flair for people. On special, non-standard and unusual, able to create something “insanely great.” Such people are usually not present. Some of them boasted then that Steve fired them a hundred times – but after half an hour or an hour to reverse its decision.

Every successful project Apple was a strong leader, able to defend their point of view, are ready to work round the clock and seven days a week. Uncomfortable in communication – for some reason all the creators obnoxious – well, almost everything. Each of them once chose Steve.

Safari, iPhone and iPad, Scott Forstall. And Apple Maps – he, too, only without Steve. the iPod is Tony Fadell. System-on-chip from Apple – johnny Srouji. Bertrand Serlet, then Craig Federighi is OS x and then iOS. Ive put the soul into the iMac, creating the world’s first true home computer.

And here at project Apple TV obnoxious-genius of the leader. Whether “zomboyaschik” and in fact turns off brains, or just had bad luck – but it did not happen. In history not included none heading this project.


At the time, projects such as Mac OS X (OS X later, in our days macOS), iOS, Mac and on different processor platforms, iPhone, iPad, and iPod were the most important or among the most important for the company. They were in focus, they spared neither the means nor the resources, they were brought to an unearthly Shine and Apple TV with no luck. If he was the center of attention for a short while and sporadically.

In 2006, when the public was informed about the company’s work on iTV, attention was drawn to much more important things: the Mac and had just switched to Intel, safely and with amazing ease – but unresolved problems was more than enough, the iPhone was at the finish line and demanded attention.

To call the device iTV failed in the UK was a television company with the same name, the interests of Apple and iTV fatal interactions, to solve the problem in the usual way (to buy the right to buy a license or something like that) failed, so the device was the Apple TV.

9 Jan 2007 one of the last MacWorld Expo in the history of Apple, Apple Computer was “simply Apple”. Now the company had 4 platforms: Mac, iPod, iPhone and Apple TV, and only one of them had to do with computers. Two of them were declared at the same time.

Apple TV first generation on the Intel Pentium M processor with a clock frequency of 1 GHz, was released in March 2007. First drive 40 Gigabytes ($299). Then with a disk of 160 GB for 399. In 2008, the prices dropped to $ 229 and $ 329 in 2009 the model with 40 Gigabytes was removed from production, a model with 160 GB cost $ 229.

Operating system in first generation Apple TV was a subset of Mac OS 10.4.7.

In 2009, iPhone already out of infancy, turned into iPhone 3GS, Apple TV was the same TV with the Apple ID of the model AppleTV1.1 – and somehow sold worse than expected.

Apple TV ceased to mention when listing platforms, Apple and declared a hobby.

The second and third generation

In 2010, finally announced AppleTV2.1, with Apple A4 inside and with the operating system based on iOS. Steve admitted his mistake: in the set top box hard drive is not needed. He only hinders. Apple TV receives data from the network and displays them on the TV screen.

The drive inside the Apple TV second generation was all the same, SSD capacity of 8 Gigabytes. Secret disk. Of which everybody who might be interested know.

The dimensions of Apple TV 2G (98х98х23 mm) became the standard for Apple TV for five years. As the price – $ 99.

Apple TV sold a little brighter, but before the expected runs it never came.

In 2011, I read a fascinating comparison Apple TV 2 Mac mini is performing the same role. The author of the comparison, and I recognized the Mac mini is a winner. True cost of “minik” five (or more) times more expensive.

A third generation, Apple A5 inside, was released in March 2012. About Apple TV 3G network a lot of conflicting information, I was able to get to the original sources, and here is the exact info: Apple TV 2012 (AppleTV3.1) was the Apple A5r2 made by Samsung, the technology of 32 nm, with a 1-nuclear CPU and 2-core PowerVR SGX543MP2 GPU.

In the Apple TV 3G introduced support 1080p (only 720p 2G) and Bluetooth Discovery to connect the selected device to the Apple TV.

At the end of January 2013 released a new model of Apple TV 3G AppleTV3.2, with Apple A5r3 within 1-nuclear CPU and the same GPU made by the same Samsung, but according to the technology of 28 nm.

Other differences between the AppleTV3.1 and AppleTV3.2 I could not find it.

In January 2013 something happened, and about the Apple TV is almost forgotten for three years.

During these three years appeared on the market, the competitors, the devices of similar purpose from Roku, Amazon and some others took over the market. Their new version came out one by one, they cost the same as Apple TV, they were more convenient and practical.

Apple TV 3G is still sold, only worse. I wonder why?

4th generation

About Apple TV 4G and about “TV of the future” will tell in the sequel, while we will pay attention only to one detail, in my opinion important.

IDs Apple TV 3G 2012 and 2013 were AppleTV3.1 and AppleTV3.2. Apple TV 2G AppleTV2 was.1. The same age as the first iPhone was AppleTV1.1.

I’ve listed them so you don’t suspect Apple clerks in the disorder. Apple TV 4G was AppleTV5.3.

What happened to AppleTV4.x? At least one was supposed to be? And where did AppleTV5.1 and AppleTV5.2?

Riddle, shrouded in mystery.

To be continued…

  1. Hey, how’s it going?

    I want to pass along some very important news that everyone needs to hear!

    In December of 2017, Donald Trump made history by recognizing Jerusalem as the capital of Israel Why is this big news? Because by this the Jewish people of Israel are now able to press forward in bringing about the Third Temple prophesied in the Bible

    Jewish Rabbis have publicly announced that their Messiah will be revealed in the coming years who will be a leader and spiritual guide to all nations, gathering all igions under the worship of one God

    Biblical prophecy tells us that this Jewish Messiah who will take the stage will be the antichrist who opposes and exalts himself above all that is called God or that is worshiped, so that he sits as God in the temple of God, showing himself that he is God (2 Thessalonians 2:4) For a time he will bring about a false peace, but Therefore when you see the ‘abomination of desolation,’ spoken of by Daniel the prophet, standing in the holy place (Matthew 24:15) then there will be great tribulation, such as has not been since the beginning of the world until this time, no, nor ever shall be (Matthew 24:21)

    More importantly, the power that runs the world wants to put a RFID microchip in our body making us total slaves to them This chip matches perfectly with the Mark of the Beast in the Bible, more specifically in Revelation 13:16-18:

    He causes all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on their right hand or on their foreheads, and that no one may buy or sell except one who has the mark or the name of the beast, or the number of his name

    Here is wisdom Let him who has understanding calculate the number of the beast, for it is the number of a man: His number is 666

    Referring to the last days, this could only be speaking of a cashless society, which we have yet to see, but are heading towards Otherwise, we could still buy or sell without the mark amongst others if physical money was still currency This Mark couldn’t be spiritual because the word references two different physical locations If it was spiritual it would just say in the forehead RFID microchip implant technology will be the future of a one world cashless society containing digital currency It will be implanted in the right-hand or the forehead, and we cannot buy or sell without it Revelation 13:11-18 tells us that a false prophet will arise on the world scene doing miracles before men, deceiving them to receive this Mark Do not be deceived! We must grow strong in Jesus AT ALL COSTS, DO NOT TAKE IT!

    Then a third angel followed them, saying with a loud voice, “If anyone worships the beast and his image, and receives his mark on his forehead or on his hand, he himself shall also drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is poured out full strength into the cup of His indignation He shall be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels and in the presence of the Lamb And the smoke of their torment ascends forever and ever; and they have no rest day or night, who worship the beast and his image, and whoever receives the mark of his name” (Revelation 14:9-11)

    People have been saying the end is coming for many years, but we needed two key things One, the Third Temple, and two, the technology for a cashless society to fulfill the prophecy of the Mark of the Beast

    Visit WWW BIBLEFREEDOM COM to see proof for these things and why the Bible truly is the word of God!

    If you haven’t already, it is time to seek God with all your heart Jesus loves you more than you could imagine He wants to have a ationship with you and redeem you from your sins Turn to Him and repent while there is still hope! This is forever God bless!


    We all know God exists Why? Because without Him, we couldn’t prove anything at all Do we live our lives as if we cannot know anything? No So why is God necessary? In order to know anything for certain, you would have to know everything, or have revelation from somebody who does Who is capable of knowing everything? God So to know anything, you would have to be God, or know God

    A worldview without God cannot account for the uniformity and intelligibility of nature And why is it that we can even reason that God is the best explanation for this if there is no God? We are given reason to know or reject God, but never to know that He does not exist

    It has been calculated by Roger Penrose that the odds of the initial conditions for the big bang to produce the universe that we see to be a number so big, that we could put a zero on every particle in the universe, and even that would not be enough to use every zero What are the odds that God created the universe? Odds are no such thing Who of you would gamble your life on one coin flip?

    Is there evidence that the Bible is the truth? Yes Did you know that the creation accounts listed in the book of Genesis are not only all correct, but are also in the correct chronological order? That the Bible doesn’t say the Earth was formed in six 24-hour days but rather six long but finite periods of time? That the Bible makes 10 times more creation claims than all major holy books combined with no contradictions, while these other books have errors in them? The Bible stood alone by concurring with the big bang saying, In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth (Genesis 1:1); and says our universe is expanding, thousands of years before scientists discovered these things Watch a potential life-changing video on the front page of WWW BIBLEFREEDOM COM with Astronomer(PhD) Hugh Ross explaining all these facts based on published scientific data He has authored many books, backed even by atheist scientists

    Jesus fulfilled more than 300 Messianic prophecies concerning His birth place, details of His life, His mission, His nature, His death, and His resurrection He came to pay a debt that we could not, to be our legal justifier to reconcile us back to a Holy God; only if we are willing to receive Him: For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord (Romans 6:23)

    God so loved the world that He gave us His only begotten son, so that whoever believes in Him, through faith, shall not perish, but have everlasting life Jesus says if we wish to enter into life to keep the commands! The two greatest commands are to love God with all your heart, soul, strength, and mind; and your neighbor as yourself All the law hang on these commands We must be born of and lead by the Holy Spirit, to be called children of God, to inherit the kingdom If we are willing to humble ourselves in prayer to Jesus, to confess and forsake our sins, He is willing to give the Holy Spirit to those who keep asking of Him; giving us a new heart, leading us into all truth!

    Jesus came to free us from the bondage of sin The everlasting fire was prepared for the devil and his angels due to disobedience to God’s law If we do the same, what makes us any different than the devil? Jesus says unless we repent, we shall perish We must walk in the Spirit, producing fruits of love and forgiveness, so we may not fulfill the lusts of the flesh being hatred, fornication, drunkenness and the like Whoever practices such things will not inherit the kingdom (Galatians 5:16-26) If we sin, we may come before Jesus to ask for forgiveness (1 John 2:1-2) Evil thoughts are not sins, but rather temptations It is not until these thoughts conceive and give birth by our hearts desire that they become sin (James 1:12-15) When we sin, we become in the likeness of the devil’s image, for he who sins is of the devil (1 John 3:8); but if we obey Jesus, in the image of God For without holiness, we shall not see the Lord (Hebrews 12:14)

    The oldest igion in the world is holiness (James 1:27) What igion did Adam and Eve follow before the fall? Jesus, Who became the last Adam, what igion does He follow? Is He not holy? He never told us to follow any igion or denomination but to deny ourselves, take up our cross daily, and follow Him (Luke 9:23) There are many false doctrines being taught leading people astray This is why we need the Holy Spirit for discernment Unlike igion, holiness cannot be created It is given to us from above by the baptism of the Spirit Jesus is more than a igion; He is about having a personal ationship with the Father Start by reading the Gospel of Matthew, to hear the words of God, to know His character and commandments Follow and obey Jesus, for He is the way, the truth, and the life!
