Check out our top stories on Apple TV:

First shown in late 2006 and released in early 2007, the Apple TV has gone through a more substantial transformation than any other Apple product in the past decade. The original model was a stripped-down Macintosh computer with a 40GB hard drive for playing videos, music, and photos on an HDTV. Apple unveiled a completely redesigned plastic model in 2010, dropping the hard drive in favor of 8GB flash storage, and in late 2015 the device was updated again with its own tvOS operating system, a slightly thicker design, and an all-new Siri Remote.

The Apple TV serves a variety of purposes now, thanks to its tvOS operating system, which has its own App Store. The Apple TV 4K and 4th-gen Apple TV come with the Siri Remote. Included is a dedicated Siri button that, when paired with universal search on the Apple TV, allows users to easily look up content from a variety of sources with a single search.

Using AirPlay with your iOS device or Mac, you can stream videos, photos, and music directly from your iPhone, iPad, iPod touch or Mac to your HDT, as well as mirroring their screens. Under some circumstances, Macs can use a TV equipped with an Apple TV as a second display.

With the release of the Apple TV 4K priced at $179 and $199 for 32GB and 64GB respectively, Apple has dropped the 64GB version of the 4th-gen Apple TV as it continues to offer the 32GB model for $149.
