New Apple TV Hardware Now Rumored for October
Although the rumor mill was vindicated on multiple fronts this week with regard to myriad details pertaining to Apple's two new iPhones, one major rumor was squashed during Tuesday's media event. Apple did not
unveil a new Apple TV.
But if it's true that good things come to those who wait, we may have our socks knocked off by the time Apple gets around to refreshing the Apple TV. But at least the wait may finally be almost over.
On Wednesday, new information surfaced to suggest that the rumored Apple TV refresh is still coming although Apple wasn't ready to release it this week. So what's the new expected launch window? We're told it's sometime in October.
According to a buzz-worthy and instantly viral tweet from tech industry insider MG Siegler today, Apple's new Apple TV hardware product will be ready within weeks. "I guess those excited about a software refresh in a week are gonna be *really* excited when new Apple TV hardware is unveiled next month," he tweeted, setting the rumor mill churning with gusto once more.
Apple hasn't updated its set top box (hardware) since March of 2012.
