The 4K Apple TV with HDR has apparently been unofficially confirmed, as the inadvertently-released HomePod firmware proves to be the gift that keeps on giving. Accidentally released to developers at large, rather than just early testers for the Siri-powered streaming speaker, the iOS 11.0.2 build has already been responsible for revealing plenty of iPhone 8 secrets. Now, it’s spilling Apple TV tidbits too.

The news comes courtesy of developer Guilherme Rambo, who spotted mention of the new, unannounced Apple TV version within the code. There, there is a mention of a “4kHDR” DisplayMode, which indicates the current box will be superseded with a version that can handle the 3840 x 2160 of Ultra HD. Rambo shared the news on Twitter on Saturday.
