Are are rumored to be announcing their new Apple TV at their iPhone event on the 9th of September.
The new Apple TV will apparently feature an update design, plus some new hardware, this will include Apple’s A8 processor which is being used to support a new improved interface and features.
One of the major changes to the Apple TV platform will be apps and games and Apple will release a new SDK for developers to create custom apps and games for the platform.
Apple will also introduce a new remote with their Apple TV, which will apparently feature a Touchpad for navigation, it will also come with a built in microphone and you will be able to control the device with Apple’s Siri.
According to TechCrunch the new remote for the Apple TV will also come with a motion sensor, this would mean that it could possibly be used as a gaming controller in a similar way to the WiiMote on the Nintendo Wii.
