• New Apple TV Set for September?



    I know, I know. You've heard it before. But the rumors are back again.

    This time, however, a heavyweight Apple source is chiming in on the matter. John Paczkowski, managing editor for BuzzFeed San Francisco, is hearing that a new Apple TV is coming in September.

    It goes without saying that such a refresh is overdue. Apple TV hasn't seen a hardware update since March of 2012.

    "Sources familiar with Apple’s plans tell BuzzFeed News that the company intends to announce its next-generation Apple TV in September, at the same event at which it typically unveils its new iPhones," Paczkowski writes.

    The device itself is pretty much as we described it to you in March, sources say, but “more polished” after some additional tweaks. Expect a refreshed and slimmer chassis and new innards; Apple’s A8 system on chip; a new remote that sources say has been “drastically improved” by a touch-pad input; an increase in on-board storage; and an improved operating system that will support Siri voice control.
    Not surprisingly, not everyone is convinced that the time has finally come for a new Apple TV. But if the latest report is accurate, we won't have to wait long to see the goods.
