The Apple TV is a small and compact streaming box, and that's probably one of the best things about it. With ease, you can shove this box in the corner of your entertainment unit and watch your favorite shows like Ted Lasso or The Morning Show. The fact that you can control the TV directly from your iPhone adds to the charm of this device. However, if you are looking for a permanent space-saving solution, wall mounts for the Apple TV make for a good pick.
These mounts are low-profile units that can be fixed behind TVs and monitors, making it easy to route the HDMI cable and the power cable.
If you are looking to mount your streaming box on the wall, here are some great wall mounts for your Apple TV. But before we get to that,
The Pinowu TV Mount brings a dual advantage to the table. Not only does it have a wall mount for the Apple TV box, but it also comes with a holder for the remote. And knowing how delicate the remote is, the holder proves to be super handy. The silicone body of the remote holder offers a good grip.
More importantly, the mount is small and fits the Apple TV 4th Gen and 4K variants. You can mount either using screws or double-sided adhesive tapes. However, as most users know, the screws are a better option since the tapes tend to lose their adhesive over time.
Once installed, you can slide your Apple TV inside the mount, connect the wires, and that's about it. It sits close to the wall, which means you can easily install it behind the TV.
It's a quite popular product on Amazon and has received a decent number of positive reviews owing to its durability and easy installation process.
The Auswaur mount falls in the same price bracket as the one above and carries a similar design. Here too, the streaming box can slowly be slid into the box once fixed to the wall. It also bundles a silicon case for the remote. Not only does it make the remote easy to hold, but it also shields it from the effects of falls and drops.
You can either screw it to the wall or use the velcro to secure it to the back of your TV. The velcro strips attach to the back of the TV via adhesive tapes. Again, a similar dilemma comes to the picture—the velcro is not strong enough to hold both the mount and the streaming box.
That said, the screws can hold the lightweight mount, and once done, the box will be ready to be in business.
The SourceTon mount carries a similar design. You get the same squarish mount and a holder for the remote. The only difference in design is that there are small slits along the bottom for better heat dissipation.
It fits the Apple TV 4th and 4K 5th generation like a glove. It's durable, and the material is good for the price. At the same time, the remote holder is low-profile and does a great job in preserving the original form factor of the remote.
MissYouGift's (yes, that's the store name) Top Shelf has a different design from the ones above. Instead of the small squarish mount, this one is a large tray that fits over the top of the TV. But let not this design worry you, for this tray is strong and can hold decent weights.
From your Apple TV box to gaming controllers or DVD players, it can hold a lot more than the wall mounts above. Though it can hold its share of weight, we'd recommend against overburdening it with lots of gadgets. The installation process is straightforward.
The only limitation is that you'd need to have considerable space between the wall and the TV. That way, this tray will fit well without damaging the TV or the wall.
The YOKEPO mount for the Apple TV mounts on top of the TV and can hold the box and a few extras. The main advantage of this design is that you do not have to worry about drilling holes for anchors and screws. And this gives you the perfect opportunity to move the box at your convenience.
There's practically no installation required. All you need to do is pull the legs, adjust the tension and hold the tray over the TV.
There are some limitations. For example, if your TV or monitor has ultra-thin bezels, there won't be enough space at the top to hold the tray's base without obstructing the view. And yes, this tray works best on table-mounted TVs compared to wall-mounted ones.
The features that set the ToatalMount wall mount for the Apple TV apart from the rest are its mounting options and heat dissipation slits. Apart from the standard adhesive strip and screw-based mounting, you can also hang the mount on the air vents of TVs. Again, the TV has to have the said feature.
Other than that, it does a great job of hiding the Apple TV box from plain sight. It's a popular product on Amazon and has seen more than 6,000 reviews. It's a little expensive. However, the sturdy design makes up for it.
The highlight of the Elago mount is its flexible body. This ensures that it can fit the Apple TV streaming box irrespective of the generation. At the same time, the silicone material ensures that your box remains free of scratches or scuff marks.
Unlike the ones above, the box doesn't slide into the mount. Rather, you insert it like a phone case or cover. The best part is that it comes with a flexible strap that lets you hang the mount with ease Or, if you are in a mood to experiment, you can use the built-in magnet and stick it to the TV's back. Naturally, it has received its share of positive reviews, all thanks to the flexible mounting options, quality of materials, and price.
Think Outside the Box
The Apple TV is a compact streaming box. The uniform design ensures that you can easily hide it from plain sight and manage the cables with ease. If you have a long HDMI cable, you can easily manage them with cord holders and cable raceways.
