9to5Mac’s Dom Esposito got his hands on the brand new Apple TV to explore the updated hardware and dig into its new operating system – tvOS. One of the most interesting findings is support for Bluetooth headphones and Bluetooth speakers, a feature that hasn’t been officialy announced by Apple.
The new option in the Apple TV 4 settings allows you to connect Bluetooth hedaphones and speakers to use for audio output system-wide. Until now, you could only use AirPlay speakers with your Apple TV.
Other interesting discoveries include an improved accessibility options and a special Nigth Mode.
Check out Dom’s unboxing and in-depth hands-on video.
The new Apple TV will be available at the end of October starting at $149 for a 32GB model and $199 for a 64GB model.
