Apple TV 4K With 64GB is Back in Stock After Extended Shipping Delays

by

Apple TV 4K models with 64GB of storage are finally back in stock following months of shipping delays for the larger capacity model.


64GB configurations are currently estimated for delivery in 1-2 days in the United States and several other countries on Apple's online store, while same-day pickup is now available at dozens of Apple's retail stores.

Back in November, shipping estimates for the 64GB model fell back to 4-5 weeks. The estimate began to shrink gradually in January and has now improved enough for next-day delivery to be a possibility again as of this week.

Apple never provided a reason for the shipping delays, but it may have been due to a recent shortage in the NAND flash storage market.

Apple TV 4K was released last September in 32GB and 64GB sizes for $179 and $199 respectively in the United States. Apple recently began selling refurbished units for $30 off in the United States, a roughly 15 percent discount.

Wait, who the hell buys the 64GB version?

Me. I just bought the 64GB 4K version at the Apple Store this past Saturday. I’d rather be safe than sorry. $20 isn’t much especially when you’re doubling the memory size IMO.

You're basing that assumption on what? Also, what would someone be storing on an ATV?

Direct TV giveaways? And other promotions ? To me that caused a shortage.

If I'm not mistaken, all of the sales and special offers were for the 32GB model only (certainly the Direct TV Now offer). Which, BTW, makes the price differential between the 32 and 64 GB models much bigger than $20 in practice.
