Apple TV SDK coming at WWDC

by tomek on June 11, 2012

Is the Apple TV about to get its own App Store? According to BGR, Apple will introduce an Apple TV SDK at WWDC 2012. Apple TV software development kit would allow third-party developers to make apps for Apple’s set-top box.

BGR reported last month that Apple is planning to unveil a brand new version of the Apple TV operating system at WWDC. A “trusted source” has told BGR that the new OS will be much more feature-complete than the current Apple TV OS and that it’s apparently the one that the long rumored Apple TV set will run.

At this year’s D10 conference, Apple CEO Tim Cook made clear that Apple TV is no longer a “hobby” project for the company: ”This is an area of intense interest for us,” Cook said, referring to the TV business. We’re going to keep pulling this string and see where it takes us.”

China Business News reported in May that Foxconn has already started a pilot production of the new Apple “smart TV”.

Apple will kick off WWDC with its keynote presentation today at 10 a.m. PST. Be sure to follow us on FacebookTwitter or Google+ for the latest updates on WWDC 2012.

    This would make it easier to jailbreak apple TV 3

    True, but I’m wondering whether jailbreaking would be AS critical with an app store.  Obviously it would be as important as it is to the iPhone, but what if XBMC and the like were allowed as an app?  That would likewise be a wonderful turn of events.  In the meantime, my ATV3 continues to sit in the closet unopened!
