Apple Pulled a Page From McDonald's Playbook in 2019

  Apple Pulled a Page From McDonald's Playbook in 2019 By almost every account, Apple has had an incredibly strong 2019. Thanks to the refreshed AirPods and the new AirPods Pro, Apple earbuds accounted for somewhere between $4 and $6 billion in sales. Now before anyone goes lunging for their pitchforks, boring doesn’t always mean bad, and especially for Apple in 2019, being boring may have been one of the company’s greatest strengths. In this way, sometimes it feels like Apple is stealing a page out of McDonald’s playbook. When you go to a Mickey D’s, you already know what’s on the menu, you know what a Big Mac or McNuggets taste like before you even put them in your mouth.

The Apple TV 4K is a more than capable streamer even two years after its September 2017 debut. That said, its A10X Fusion processor is getting a bit long in the tooth however it looks like an update may finally be on the horizon.

According to 9to5Mac, beta code for an upcoming version of the company's tvOS includes references for an unreleased Apple TV that appears to be using either an A12 or A13 processor. The A12 chip was introduced with the iPhone XS in 2018 while the iPhone 11 line takes advantage of the A13.

Either processor would be a sizeable upgrade over the A10X Fusion, which is a variant of the A10 chip first released in the iPhone 7 .

Like the current Apple TV 4K, the updated model is expected to keep a maximum resolution of 4K with HDR, though the real gains could come in gaming. Apple continues to push its Apple Arcade gaming platform across its devices and giving developers a modern home device could help in boosting the Apple TV's appeal.

It is unclear when exactly the new Apple TV 4K might appear, with 9to5Mac suggesting that the model they spotted is an internal prototype. One possibility is this spring, potentially alongside Apple's long-rumored iPhone SE 2 that is expected to arrive during the first half of 2020.

Apple did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
