The amount of $200 could get you a new version of the Apple TV. About to announce it at a September 9 press event in San Francisco, the new Apple TV appears to have powerful hardwre and a revamped remote control. Tech observers expect it to come with a full-blown app store similar to iPhone and iPad allowing publishers to bring more services to Apple TV.
According to reports, Apple TV is gaming ready. The device will have a Wii-like remote control that uses a gyroscope to enable complex interactions in video games.
Siri, Apple devices’ helpful voice-controlled assistant, will allow users to control the TV directly with voice.
However, these new features will definitely drive the prices higher. The existing Apple TV only costs about $69. However, it would have no access to the new app store or any new features and updates from Apple.
Meanwhile, Apple’s TV streaming service would be available. Apple slated to launch a competitor cable bundle but postponed the launch for a number of reasons.
All these reports are speculations. However, the sources of these news articles are highly reliable, making it possible that all speculations may likely be true.
