New Apple TV to launch on September 9, feature a TV-optimized version of iOS 9 and Siri support
Apple is currently being rumored for planning to debut its latest Apple TV in September. The latest device which bears the code name J34 will reportedly run a TV-optimized version of iOS 9.
Earlier this year, the new Apple TV hardware and software upgrades were reportedly protected by Apple for June's WWDC debut, but the company said made a decision to delay the introduction until the fall, 9to5mac asserted.
According to The Verge, the company has postponed the announcement until September to let engineers refine iOS 9, creating an operating system that would feel smooth on a phone or tablet, but would be optimized for the TV screen as well.
The site also reports that general technological improvements, including more storage, faster processor, and an overhauled user interface will be built to the new Apple TV set-top box. However, the Apple's planned internet TV service won't be launched.
Digital Trends claims that a new slimmer design will also be boasted on the new Apple TV alongside the larger remote control where tactile keys, in addition to support for touch- and gesture-based inputs are being supported.
More information from the site said that among its series, the new Apple TV is anticipated to be the first model to arrive with its own App Store. The TV-optimized iOS 9 said to certainly make it easier for developers with prior experience with iOS to step on board.
Lastly, the site shared that their earlier report indicated that the new Apple TV is expected to come along with a new remote with a built-in touchpad and now, their present report claims that it will even feature Gesture controls and a Force Touch that is most likely to be included in the remote too.
The latest Apple TV that will reportedly run on iOs 9 is being anticipated to be unveiled together with the next generation of iPhones on September 9 in San Francisco.
