Apple TELEVISION App Size Limited to 200 MB Resident Storage, Has 2 GB RAM

Earlier today Apple revealed the long-awaited fourth-generation Apple TELEVISION, that includes an App Store that enables designers to create apps and video games for users to download. The brand-new Apple TELEVISION also has either 32 GB or 64 GB of local storage. However, Apple’s brand-new App Shows Guide for tvOS, very first found by designer Steve Troughton-Smith, includes some intriguing insights into how designers can make use of that storage. For example, apps are restricted to 200 MB of regional storage.


Each app kept on Apple TV is restricted to an optimum of 200MB. In order to create an app higher than this quantity, you need to separate your app into downloadable bundles. In Xcode, create tags and connect them to the needed resources. When your app demands the resources associated with a tag, the operating system downloads just the required assets. You should wait up until the possessions are downloaded prior to you can use them in your app.This suggests that each app is restricted to a 200 MB shell that downloads the assets it needs to run whenever essential. The brand-new Apple TELEVISION, despite having a base of 32 GB of storage, does not have consistent regional storage, meanings that that each time an app remains in use it needs to make a demand to iCloud to re-download the assets it needs to run. As noted by MacRumors’sister website TouchArcade, it’s

most likely this decision originates from iOS 9’s App Thinning, which reduces the size of apps so that users don’t utilize as much of their local storage on their devices. Apple TV apps are universal apps, allowing designers to produce one app that can work on iPhone, Apple Watch, iPad and Apple TV. However, because the apps are universal apps, the total storage size of the app includes possessions that aren’t completely pertinent for each device. For instance, an iPhone user would have no need for the iPad or Apple TELEVISION possessions for an app on their iPhone, and an Apple TELEVISION user would have no requirement for iPad or Apple Watch assets on their Apple TELEVISION. Additionally, as noted by Troughton-Smith, Apple has exposed in its shows guide that the brand-new Apple TELEVISION has 2 GB of RAM. Typically, Apple decreases to publicly expose how much RAM its iOS-based devices consist of. For example, the discovery of just how much RAM is in each brand-new iPhone model is frequently speculated about until a teardown or speed test from a third-party can determine it independently. The new Apple TV will start shipping in nearly 80 countries at the end of October. The brand-new Siri Remote is only offered in the United States, United Kingdom, France, Spain, Germany, Canada and Australia. Other countries will receive a remote that replaces the Siri with a Browse app. The new Apple TV is priced at $ 149 for the 32 GB version and $ 199 for the 64 GB variation. [source]
