Amazon's ancient 1080p Fire TV Stick might finally get an upgrade

Amazon's 4K Fire TV stick is a decent option for a self-contained 4K media streaming device, but the company's cheapest 1080p model is... not good. It was underpowered and slow when it was released, and it hasn't seen a hardware upgrade in four years (not counting when Amazon started bundling a voice remote). A new 1080p streaming stick might finally be on the way, according to a new rumor.

Official Apple TV app makes its way to some Amazon Fire TV Sticks

Where Apple – that other tech giant that doesn't make the world's most popular operating system – was once able to lock users into its walled garden of premium-priced hardware, the tech industry has recently been shifting further from what devices are (processors, cameras, and displays) and more toward what they can do through software. Apple's recent pivot to monthly subscription services has had a notable impact on the Cupertino company's business model, forcing it out of its hardware ecosystem to capitalize on the wider world of devices. We saw this a few years ago when Apple Music came to Android in 2015, and now we're seeing it again with the official Apple TV app landing on some Amazon Fire TV devices.

We're not far from the days when Amazon and Google were feuding over how YouTube was shown on Echo Show displays and not selling Chromecasts on the Amazon marketplace — in the course of the saga, both companies pulled services from their counterpart's platform. However, the pair came to terms earlier this year with an agreement that resulted in YouTube services coming back to Fire TV devices in July.

To say that Google's and Amazon's relationship has been going through a rough patch over the past couple of years would be an understatement.
