According to TechCrunch’s MG Siegler, Apple is working on a new version of the Apple TV. We’ve heard this news before, but recent developments put the arrival of the new Apple TV as soon as next month.
AllThingsD reports that “despite speculation about new Apple TV hardware on the way, Apple won’t be unveiling any new boxes next week,” but will release a new software for the second and third generation hockey pucks. That’s, as usual, “according to people familiar with the company’s plans.”
Information from the U.S. Department of Homeland Security has revealed that Apple recently imported three shipments of set top boxes from a known Chinese supplier. This could be just a routine shipment of existing Apple TV model but this could also be an indication that the company may be gearing towards unveiling a new Apple TV during a special event to be held on September 10.
Star Trek Into Darkness is now available on iTunes ($14.99 SD/19.99 HD) and you can, of course, watch it on your Apple TV. The movie hits iTunes three weeks before the DVD release (September 10th), and, as noticed by 9to5Mac, it’s “the first major movie available on digital mediums like iTunes prior to DVD sales”.
