Is there a difference when it comes to mounting an Apple TV 4K versus the new Apple TV 4K 3rd Generation released in 2022? Definitely! Unlike competitors, we customize our mounts for the newest devices - it’s what helps set us apart from the competition.
Whether you have the newest or oldest Apple TV model, we've got a mount that'll upgrade your viewing experience. Read on to learn more about how these easy-to-install mounts can elevate the look of your space while keeping your streaming device safe and secure!
WHY DID WE MAKEit?
When Apple released the Apple TV 4K model in 2017, we immediately wondered what changes might need to be made to our original Apple TV 4 (4th generation) Mount. The ATV4 and 4K devices are so similar; they’re practically identical from the front. However, taking a closer look, we noticed a very important difference on the back of the ATV4K device. Vents!
A product comparison done by 9to5 states, "the fourth-generation Apple TV maxed out at 1080p video at 60 frames per second, the new 4K model supports a resolution of 3,840 x 2,160." Faster processing means more heat, and Apple knew it was necessary to make specific changes to accommodate cooling.
Well, HIDEit knows the importance of not blocking vents and ports as well!
One of our mounts’ key features is to ensure our sleek signature designs allow for maximum airflow. Shockingly, no one else in the market has redesigned their ATV4 Mount to accommodate this all-important aspect properly. We’ve had a solution for every Apple TV generation and were eager to lead the industry with another innovative mount once again!
Will the Apple TV 4K Mount work with the Apple TV 4K 3rd Generation Released in 2022?
Simply put, no.
The Apple TV 4K 3rd Generation (2022) is overall smaller than the previous 4K generations, so we opted to make a new Apple TV 4K Mount to properly fit this latest release. Many competitors claim their existing Apple TV 4K Mounts work with the new model. Sure, the device improperly fits because it's smaller than the existing mount. HIDEit standards are higher. We will always produce a custom solution for proper fit and functionality so your Apple TV is secure no matter how it's mounted.
Just to reiterate, you will need to check which Apple TV generation you have in order to find the proper mount.
HOW DID WE MAKEit?
We made a slight adjustment to our HIDEit ATV4 steel mount design, adding cutouts that align with the Apple TV 4K’s (2017 and 2021 models) vents, giving the device appropriate breathing room.
We’re also firm believers that metal mounts are better - providing strength and stability for each device, as well as peace of mind for our customers knowing their device is secure. Our original mount for the Apple TV (1st generation) was made of acrylic, and ten years of research and development put us at the forefront. We now use 16-gauge, cold-rolled steel plus a powder coat finish to prevent rusting on all of our wall mounts and protect your devices.
"We received a lot of praise from AV integrators during the CEDIA 2017 conference for having a metal mount versus a plastic mount. Their biggest concerns were heat issues and adhesives failing.” ~ Chuck Shirley, Founder and COO
