At last, the next iteration of Apple's living room set-top box has arrived. Well, almost. The fourth-generation Apple TV is now available to order online, with the first units arriving on October 30th. The base model with 32GB of storage will set you back $149 (£129), or you can pay an extra $50 (£40) for the 64GB version. The biggest addition is arguably the remote, which now comes with a small touchpad for navigation and games. Yep, video games. It's not a heavyweight console like the PS4 or Xbox One, but you'll be able to play casual titles like Crossy Road and Harmonix's Beat Sports. There's also a much-improved TV interface and Siri-enabled voice commands, should you prefer shouting at the screen to mashing buttons. There's no 4K support -- unlike the latest Amazon and Roku boxes -- but in return you'll be well-prepared for when Apple's long-awaited TV subscription service arrives.
