With the 4K Apple TV going up for pre-order later today, Apple has started rolling out 4K HDR content in the iTunes Store. All 4K movies in the App Store carry a ‘4K’ and ‘Dolby Vision’ tag.

Watching movies and TV shows in 4K Ultra HD (UHD) in the comfort of the living room has become a standard selling point for many set-top boxes and other streaming devices, and Apple is looking to get in on the bandwagon too with its own Apple TV.
The iOS 11 GM leak has not only provided details about the iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus, and the iPhone X but also about other devices Apple will be unveiling on September 12. The unveiling of a 4K Apple TV on Tuesday is all but confirmed and thanks to developer Steve Stroughton Smith, we now know a bit more about it.
This year’s iPhone launch event is turning out to be as exciting as the original launch event from 2007. Apple’s iconic, money-making product is going through a revolutionary change. The iPhone people have known and loved for the past decade may have gotten several features; but certain aspects of the device have remained the same. For example, the Home button has been central to navigating an iPhone since the first iteration. The tenth-anniversary iPhone boldly is going to change that familiarity, along with other never-seen-before features.
Rumor is that Apple is working on an Apple TV set-top box that supports 4K and High Dynamic Range (HDR) content.
Earlier this year, when Apple teased the upcoming arrival of Amazon Video on Apple TV, that was the only detail the company was willing to discuss at the Worldwide Developers Conference regarding the set-top box.

The HomePod firmware that Apple published a couple of weeks back inadvertently revealed a lot about the upcoming iPhone 8. Now, more digging into the firmware has revealed that Apple is working on a new Apple TV with 4K support.
One of the things Apple was called out for, despite launching the Apple TV 4 with a ton of new features, was the fact it didn’t support 4K content, let alone High Dynamic Range.
Right now, Apple is seeding tvOS 10.2 betas, but it looks like tvOS 11 may see the light of day sometime soon.
Apple has already begun development on next year’s fifth-generation Apple TV, and is now producing the device in small numbers, according to supply chain sources. The set-top box is said to pack a powerful new CPU that will greatly improve performance.
