A new report says that Apple will unveil a new Apple TV box at the WWDC 2015 in June.
The Apple TV is long due for an update. Apple has at the Apple Watch event announced to reduce the price of the Apple TV box to $69. Apple also secured an exclusive deal for the new HBO Now streaming service. The price reduction was already a big sign that a new Apple TV is on its way.
Now John Paczkowski reports on Buzzfeed that his sources say that a new Apple TV will be unveiled at the Apple developer conference in June. It makes a lot of sense to announced the new Apple TV there as it will come with its own App Store.
The new Apple TV box with apps would go beyond video streaming. It would try to be the single king-pin of the digital living room. The new Apple TV would be at the center of music, video, TV, apps and home automation.
The redesigned Apple TV is supposed to run on an A8 CPU with a lot more storage than the current Apple TV box. The current Apple TV supports 1080p. It is likely that Apple will introduce Ultra HD 4K support on the new Apple TV box to support Netflix 4K and other Ultra HD services. Other features predicted for the new 2015 Apple TV include Siri and HomeKit support.
If this report is true than Tim Cook will unveil the new Apple TV at the WWDC 2015 in June, but it will not go on sale until fall. This will give app developers enough time to develop new Apple TV apps. This is how Apple rolls out new devices with app support. Just look at its most recent new device, the Apple Watch.
The current Apple TV is on the market since 2012. The 2015 Apple TV could be a major step forward that will differentiate the box again to other streaming boxes.
The WWDC 2015 is likely to take place on June 8-12 in San Francisco. Apple has though not made an official announcement yet about the WWDC 2015.
