The new Apple TV is expected to be unveiled at Apple’s September 9 event and will reportedly ship in October at either $149 or $199 dollars, according to 9to5Mac.
More expensive than current Apple TV
No one seems to know how Mark Gurman keeps getting information about unannounced products but he is at it again. This time he hears that the new Apple TV will be available to buy starting in October.
He also claims to know that it will be more expensive that the current version that was introduced at $99 dollars and later dropped to $69. The new box with an App Store, Siri, HomeKit and faster processor will reportedly have a starting price of either $149 or $199, suggesting that Apple may sell versions with more storage capacity. Apple has apparently not settled on the final price yet.
Apple will continue to sell the current version and the upcoming TV service will also work on it.
It is rumored to have App Store, Siri integration, HomeKit, a touch remote, a faster processor, more storage, iOS 9, Proactive, and more . Gurman says that he will reveal more details on "Apple TV’s gaming, Siri, and remote control functionality" in the coming days.
Apple will unveil its new products at an event on September 9 that will be live-streamed.
