According to a new report, Apple is finally, finally!!! going to unveil the next generation Apple TV this September.
According to BuzzFeed, Apple is planning to announce a new Apple TV during its iPhone event in September—“for real this time.”
BuzzFeed’s unnamed sources confirm that the next-generation Apple TV will be slimmer, come with Apple’s A8 processor, include more built-in storage, and will have a better operating system. This iteration of the set-top box will also support Siri voice commands and have a redesigned touch-pad remote control. Additionally, this new Apple TV will have its own App Store, with a developers kit that will also be announced at the event.
Why it matters: Apple TV has been long overdue for a refresh—it hasn’t been updated since 2012. Despite that, Apple TV has become the leading set-top for paid TV streaming, surpassing Roku, Xbox, and Playstation, according to data compiled by Adobe Digital Index.
