Looks like the next 4K Apple TV might be 8K ready

Evidence was found in the code for Apple’s next major round of software updates – including for iOS on phones, iPadOS on tablets, macOS on Macs, and of course tvOS on Apple TV 4K – that Apple will support the AV1 video format from next-gen on your devices in the future.

AV1 has one big advantage: it is more efficient than current video codecs (a ‘codec’ is the algorithm by which a video is encoded for streaming and then decoded for viewing). That means you use less data to stream video at the same quality, or you can use the same amount of data to stream even higher quality video like 8K support without using large amounts of data.
