Apple TV 4K Returns to Just $100 in 1-Day Best Buy Sale Ahead of Updated Model's Release This might be your last chance to save on the current-gen Apple TV 4K before it goes away for good.

Apple this month unveiled an upgraded Apple TV 4K for 2022 with a faster processor, increased storage and new lower price. Apple TV 4K 2022 preorders are open ahead of the device’s release next week, though you might want to consider the outgoing 2021 model with the flash sale currently going on at Best Buy. Its one-day sale drops the 2021 Apple TV 4K down to just $100 there, saving you $79 versus its retail price. The 64GB version is just $10 more, too. Those prices are being matched at Amazon and Walmart

Apple just unveiled a new Apple TV 4K for 2022 which is coming next month, sparking a flash sale on the current-gen model. This version from 2021 is powered by Apple’s A12 Bionic chip and has 32GB of storage, Wi-Fi and Ethernet and comes with the Siri Remote. At $79 off, this is about as low as we have seen it go and worth considering if you don’t need the upgraded 2022 model — particularly if you need Ethernet or can forego the extra storage of the new model.

The 64GB Apple TV 4K offers extra storage if you’ll be downloading a lot of content or installing various games and apps. The more capacious model has a similarly massive discount to the 32GB model at Amazon, Walmart and Best Buy.

Given how rare Apple TV deals tend to be, this is a good opportunity to nab one for less. There are a few reasons, however, why it’s worth considering over the updated 2022 model outside of the pure dollar equation. 

If you don’t need the extra processing and graphics power offered by the new model’s A15 Bionic chip for gaming, or the extra storage for downloading tons of games and movies, your day-to-day browsing and streaming experience is going to be mostly the same using the 2021 model. Further, the 2021 model includes gigabit Ethernet as standard, but it doesn’t feature on the base-space 2022 model — you have to spend extra for the wired connection. HDR10 Plus support is the other headline feature of the 2022 Apple TV 4K, though the 2021 model is no slouch in the picture quality department with 4K, Dolby Vision and HDR10 support. 

We’re spoiled for choice when it comes to streaming devices these days, with great options from Roku, Amazon, Google and more all available inexpensively. If you’re all-in on the Apple ecosystem though, the Apple TV is undeniably the best pick for you. Apple TV offers the level of user experience you’d expect from an Apple product, plus convenient tie-ins with your Apple ID, iTunes purchase history, and Apple services such as Apple TV Plus and Apple Fitness Plus. Ultimately, you’re likely to enjoy using an Apple TV more than a device from a competitor and today’s discounts help lower its price to something a little closer to the rest of the streaming pack.
