In less than two weeks from now, developers from all around the world will fill the halls of Moscone West in San Francisco for Apple’s annual Worldwide Developers Conference. A lot of great announcements are expected and today we’re hearing that an Apple TV revamped OS with a completely new user interface will be unveiled at WWDC 2012. Apple is expected to make a lot of software related announcements at this event, which kicks off on June 11.
The third generation Apple TV was just released a little while back. The device still retains its little black box design which takes up a very small amount of space next to your television set. Apple TV 3G does not come with any major improvements apart from a slight modification in hardware and a new software. Sources are now of the view that Apple will unveil an entirely new Apple TV OS which will come with a revamped user interface.
Apple has for long termed this device as a hobby. It has been rumoured time and again that Apple is developing a full fledged HDTV set. Reportedly months before his death Steve Jobs had finally figured out how to create a near perfect television set. If that story holds truth, considering the fact that it was narrated in Steve’s autobiography, then we can very well see the launch of an Apple HDTV in the coming months. Analysts at various firms are already certain that the release of this product is imminent.
It is also being said that Apple is in talks with various manufacturers in a bid to get them to manufacture peripherals for Apple TV and it’s new OS that is yet to be revealed. Furthermore it is believed that this Apple TV OS update will be similar to the OS Apple will use in it’s HDTV. This reason behind this update might be to give the consumers a taste of what’s yet to come and what exactly Apple is capable of doing in the television industry.
So at WWDC 2012, the new Apple TV OS with a revamped UI will go on display. The Apple HDTV is still far from reality right now, though it is believed that production has already started. A release is possible, but don’t expect Apple to give any details about it’s rumoured television at Worldwide Developers Conference 2012. Keep your hopes high for a release in either Q3 or Q4 of 2012.
