9to5Mac’s Senior Editor, Mark Gurman is riding a high tide now, as most of his predictions regarding the Apple Watch and the new ultra-thin MacBook were proven right. In an interview given to CNBC, Gurman shares his views on where Apple TV is going and the possibility of an Apple television set.
The fact that Steve Jobs has no trust in set-top box as a device that could revolutionize the TV market makes many people think Apple may decide to build televisions. Well, that may be a reality soon as DailyTech reports that Apple “is teaming up with a major OEM to sell iOS-powered, Apple-branded displays.”
According to the former Apple executive who anonymously spoke to DailyTech, Apple plans to bundle Apple TV and iTunes inside physical television sets. The source claims that Apple is teaming up with a major supplier (Samsung?) to provide the physical televisions, which will be rebranded as Apple television sets. The source believed a fall launch was in order, but the product could launch as late as next year.
