In tvOS update 14.5 beta it is suggested that a new model of Apple TV may be on the way and supporting the 120Hz screen refresh rate.

Rumors have been circulating in recent times where it is commented that Apple could be developing the next generation of its Apple TV about 1 year ago. And it is now that these rumors have gained greater credibility. According to 9to5Mac website, references to 120Hz support were found in the source code of the version beta of tvOS 14.5. Something that is not at all applicable to the current model since it has limitations of hardware that make it impossible to support this functionality, thus leaving the door open to the emergence of a new model.

Thus, there are several references to “120Hz” and “Supports 120Hz” found and added to the PineBoard tvOS in its perspective beta. For those unfamiliar with this term PineBoard, this is the internal designation of the system that controls the entire interface Apple TV, similar to SpringBoard existing on the iPhone and iPad. These references strongly suggest that Apple is testing the 120Hz mode on its Apple TV.

It should be noted that however the current Apple TV 4K does not support 120Hz update rate even with the release of the respective update. This is because the current model is equipped with an HDMI 2.0 port which limits the resolution from 4K to 60Hz. To be able to have 120Hz on Apple TV you will need an HDMI 2.1 port.

Of course, it will also be mandatory to have a 120Hz TV so that we can enjoy all the fluidity and smoothness that this resolution provides.

It was also in 2019 that a source advanced to the 9to5Mac that a new model of Apple TV with HDMI 2.1 port would be being developed by the brand. The same source also revealed that it would come equipped with the A12 processor.
