If you’re one of the lucky few who has an Apple TV 4K read on. Your movies will start to look and sound a whole lot better.
Announced at the World Wide Developer’s Conference in San Jose, Apple’s upcoming tvOS 12 software update will deliver both Dolby Vision and Dolby Atmos support.
Dolby Vision was previously available but now iTunes will have the world’s largest catalogue of Dolby Vision, Dolby Atmos, 4K HDR movies.
Also, Apple will upgrade your existing movie library to the Dolby Atmos versions for free. Just like it did with the 4K High Dynamic Range (HDR) versions of movie titles.
To enjoy Dolby Atmos’s room-filling, three-dimensional sound effects, you’ll need an Apple TV 4K along with a Dolby Vision compatible TV and Dolby Atmos compatible soundbar.
While not relevant in Australia yet, there’s a “zero sign-on” feature that automatically connects you to a TV channel’s online content, without the lengthy sign-in process that tends to be a pain when using a remote control.
