Apple upgraded its TV streaming media device with support for ultra-high-resolution 4K video and HDR, short for high dynamic range, a visual tool for radically enhancing a screen's contrast and colors. The so-called Apple TV 4K will begin shipping on September 22 for $179. People who buy the Apple TV 4K will only get the maximum resolution if they're watching 4K video content on a 4K-compatible TV or equivalent monitor or screen, of course. Apple says it's bringing 4K movies to iTunes at the same price it charges for high-definition movies, and people who bought HD movies will be automatically upgraded to the 4K versions. Apple is also working with streaming companies like Netflix to bring their 4K video content to the Apple TV 4K.
