It’s been widely speculated that the next Apple TV hardware upgrade will include support for 4K HDR-enabled displays. Today a recent purchase receipt from a UK iTunes movie purchase strongly hints that 4K support may be soon bound for iTunes, which would go hand in hand with 4K Apple TV support in the future.
The best wireless keyboard for the Mac? The receipt, which was noted by MacRumors forum member Tomas Jackson shows several film purchases. The most notable item on the receipt, the 2016 adventure film, Passengers, shows Movie (4K, HDR) under the Type column, where the remaining films simply show Film (HD).
Jackson, who resides in the UK, shared his findings, and another poster, who also resides in the UK noted a similar finding. Currently the 4K type appears to be only showing up on UK purchase receipts, as another member, located in the US, purchased the same movie and it displayed Movie (HD) under the Type instead of 4K.
Only a matter of time before a 4k compatible Apple TV is released so it makes sense. September event I presume.
