Upcoming Apple TV to Feature Faster Processors and Siri Integration

March 23, 2015, By Sanjeev Ramachandran

After a prolonged period of unchanged tone, the Apple TV is now finally gearing up for some hefty updates since its release.

The new Apple TV is now filling the headlines with the rumored release dates, as well as the spec-sheet it would be featuring.

BuzzFeed’s John Paczkowski, a name that has often brought forth good revelations, has now reported that the set-top box from Apple would be having its upgrade by around June.


The new Apple TV would be unveiled during the Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC) in June, and he says that would be a ‘significant overhaul of the device’.

The updates would include a hike in the processing front, and is expected to offer 4K support. Bigger storage spec is another expected boost, which will also be coming along with a makeover with its exterior design.

Apple TV, which has been offering stream services from Netflix and download services from iTunes, will also be now offering home automation services, which would integrate  door locks and power outlets. But it’s not known whether it would be integrating with an existing home automation system.


Apple has kept mum over the speculations and is yet to respond to the queries.

Reports are also that they would be moving forward with an online TV service, similar to the recently launched PlayStation Vue service from Sony on its PS3 and PS4 devices.

No word has come forth regarding the pricing of the upcoming Apple TV, but Apple CEO Tim Cook had earlier revealed that the pricing of the current Apple TVs, set at $99, will be dropped to $69. Around 25 million units of Apple TV have been sold until now.
