Last week, Engadget reported that Apple will make some big changes to Apple TV as they are planning to run the next device with iOS with Apps support like other iDevices. They will also rename the device as iTV which would match with other iDevices. The founder of Digg, Kevin Ross thinks that Apple will be releasing a new version of ‘Apple TV’ and will still call it Apple TV. He doesn’t have any technical information but he thinks Apple will launch it in September.
From what I hear we should expect to see the iTV launch in September. Also, keep an eye onGoogleTV – this is going to be a hot space in 2011.
Kevin Rose also thinks that iTV will change because it may have the following things:
- iOS TV Applications
- a la carte (app) stations
- .Me Picture/Video sharing
- The iPad will turn into one big badass remote control
- It will cost only $99
Well, if iTV has to be launched in September, then it may be revealed in the same event in which Apple would unveil their new iPod touch and iPod Nano lineup. Kevin Rose has been correct with his past Apple predictions specially with iPod Nano, so we don’t have much doubts in what he thinks.
