Dolby Atmos support for the Apple TV app is coming to LG Smart TVs later this year

LG is running away with the Apple TV app features.

What you need to know

  • LG has announced that Dolby Atmos support is coming to the Apple TV app.
  • The company has said that app and Airplay 2 support for the feature is coming “later this year”.
  • LG already supports Dolby Vision through the app.

As Apple continues to bring the Apple TV app to a number of manufacturers televisions and streaming devices, LG seems to be way ahead of the game. The TV manufacturer has now confirmed to FlatpanelsHD that it will be adding Dolby Atmos support to select LG Smart TVs “later this year” in a software update.

LG has already enabled Dolby Vision through the Apple TV, the only manufacturer to do so thus far. Currently, the only other way to watch content through in the Apple TV app and have Dolby Vision enabled is to have Apple’s own Apple TV streaming box.

LG says that not only will Dolby Atmos be available through the Apple TV app itself, but also to content that is cast to their televisions from an iPhone, iPad, or Mac with AirPlay 2 compatibility. This also works with the Apple TV set-top box.

The Apple TV app is currently also available on select televisions from Samsung, as well as being available for owners of a Roku or Amazon FireTV. Doly Atmos support, however, is still missing from all of these manufacturers. The Apple TV app is also slated for release on select televisions from Sony and Vizio later this year, but Doly Vision and Atmos support is currently unknown if it will launch with the app or later in a software update.

New tvOS 13.4 Beta Indicates New Apple TV On The Way

Yesterday’s first beta release of Apple’s upcoming tvOS 13.4 operating system indicates a new Apple TV with the codename “T1125” that will boast an A12 Bionic chip or newer is in development.

9to5Mac reports details of the new device are rather slim other than the device’s processor and that it will support a maximum resolution of 4K in HDR.

The report mentions that Apple’s current set-top device is named “J105a” and the HD model is “J42d”. The letter “T” at the beginning of the new device’s codename suggests that it’s an internal model, possibly a prototype that is still under development.

Rumors of a new Apple TV powered by an A12 chip began circulating last fall, but the alleged model number was said to be “J305.” Apple has typically updated the device every two years or so, as the first tvOS-powered model launched in 2015 and a new Apple TV 4K device hitting shelves in September 2017. All of this means the device is well past due for an update.

An Apple TV with a faster chip would definitely boost Apple’s drive to turn the set-top device into a casual gaming console, providing more horsepower for the games found in the Apple Arcade gaming service.

Dolby Atmos Coming to LG Apple TV App Later in 2020

LG confirmed that the Apple TV app on its TVs will support Dolby Atmos and AirPlay 2 later this year (via FlatpanelsHD).

LG Dolby Atmos Support

Earlier this week people with certain LG TVs noticed the addition of the Apple TV app. But they also noticed it lacked support for Dolby Atmos. Now LG confirms that support is coming later this year.

Earlier this week, LG became the first partner to offer Dolby Vision streaming from within the app. LG now confirms to FlatpanelsHD that support for Dolby Atmos will be added “later this year” for both the Apple TV app and AirPlay 2. – “Support for Dolby Atmos will be coming later this year,” LG told FlatpanelsHD, referring to both the Apple TV app and AirPlay 2. No further details were provided so we cannot confirm if this applies generally to 2018, 2019 and 2020 LG TVs or only some of them.

Currently the app does support Dolby Vision on these TV models.

There might be a new Apple TV 4K mentioned in the tvOS 13.4 beta

The code mentions a new model by the name ‘T1125’.

What you need to know

  • There might be a new Apple TV 4K on the way.
  • 9to5 Mac claims to have spotted a new codename in the tvOS 13.4 beta.
  • It’s purported to be based on arm64e architecture, the same used in Apple’s A12 and A13 chips.

There might be a new Apple TV 4K on the way, after 9to5 Mac reportedly spotted the codename for a new piece of hardware in the tvOS 13.4 beta.

According to their report:

Yesterday Apple released first developer betas as part of its next round of software releases: iOS 13.4, iPadOS 13.4, macOS 10.15.4, tvOS 13.4, and watchOS 6.2. We’ve already discovered some new things hidden in the system, such as the new CarKey API, and now 9to5Mac has found references to a new Apple TV model in the tvOS 13.4 beta code.

The codes reveal a new Apple TV with the codename “T1125”, while the current Apple TV 4K is named “J105a” and the HD model is “J42d”. The letter “T” at the beginning suggests that it’s an internal model, probably a prototype that hasn’t been completely finished yet.

The report claims that the internal files point to hardware based on arm64e architecture. That’s the same architecture used in Apple’s A12 and A13 Bionic chips. The current gen Apple TV 4K runs on the A10 chip, so that would be quite a big jump in terms of perfomance.

The reported maximum resolution will remain 4K with HDR, because you know… Apple TV… 4K.

The Apple TV 4K was announced at the Apple event held on September 12, 2017, serving us faithfully in all things Ultra-HD ever since. That being said, it’s a little long in the tooth in Apple terms, so a refresh to the lineup would be very much welcome.

It’s quite likely that if Apple is indeed planning to hold a March event, then it would make sense for Apple to announce a new Apple TV 4k then.
