New Apple TV Color Balance Feature

During this week’s Apple Event, along with the new iPad Pro, colorful iMacs, AirTags and even a purple iPhone, a new Apple TV box revealed, complete with an updated remote. But it’s a new Apple TV color balance feature that will allow for easy image optimization that’s really exciting.

Whenever you get a new TV, it can be frustrating trying to get all the display settings just right. The color balance, brightness, and contrast in particular can be maddening to tweak. But if you happen to be watching most of your movies and television programming through an Apple TV, that process will soon be a lot simpler with the help of an iPhone. Read More »

When Apple TV+ launched in November 2019, it presented itself as a shiny new alternative to streaming giants like Netflix and Amazon, with a line-up of high-profile shows starring beloved A-listers. But the streaming service ended up earning little fanfare, overshadowed by the buzzy rollout of Disney+. Many wondered whether it was the middling reviews for the original titles, or more likely, the lack of a back catalogue altogether.

Apple TV 4K Discount Price

Today brings the seemingly unceremonious launch of Apple TV+, the new streaming service from the tech company who is probably hoping that they didn’t just release the streaming equivalent of the Newton. Apple is hoping to get as many customers as possible to sign up for the service for just $4.99 a month, and AT&T has just made it a little easier for you to make that happen.

The good news is that you don’t need to be an AT&T customer in any capacity to take advantage of the deal.
