Apple Introducing Television Operating System (TVOS) for iTV at WWDC 2012
Apple’s own television set to revolutionize the global television market with some amazing capabilities is the next big thing the folks are waiting for keenly; now BGR claims by citing their well reliable source that Apple is planning to introduce a new television set operating system (TVOS) at its Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC-2012) commencing from June 11. The company is actually willing to demo this new TVOS well ahead of original product just to allow third-party manufacturers to build functionality into their components to make them fully integrated with the Apple television set, likely dubbed as iTV, and its remote controller.
This new OS is said to be much more feature-complete than the current OS that runs on the Apple TV, and is apparently the one that Apple’s upcoming HDTV will run. Yes, that one. We’ve heard Apple is actively trying to court manufacturers to use a new “control out” API in order for third-party manufacturers to make accessories that are compatible with the new Apple TV OS and the upcoming “iTV.” It’s said that by using the API, it will be possible to control any connected components all from the Apple remote (and the Apple remote iOS app as well, we’re assuming).
The source also hint that the company will not show off the original Apple television ‘iTV’ at WWDC-2012 and it will be launched by the end of this year, surely. BGR is known for its capability of breaking almost accurate news about Apple related issues. This news also seems very true because, traditionally, Apple all devices are run by their own specific operating systems and we wouldn’t be so much surprised if company releases its new Apple TV set ‘iTV’ with its own particular operating system.
