iOS 5 Includes Concrete Clue for Next Generation Apple TV!
Apple TV is one of the most popular product from Apple after its dashing iPhone, iPad and iPod touch devices. However, it seems that Apple has been ignoring it for last many months since it got only one updates so far in its entire life span starting from its debut in 2007. In Sep. 2010, Apple pushed out an iOS based update for Apple TV. In June, it was noted that Apple’s new operating system iOS 5 has a concrete clue for making Apple TV capable of streaming top quality 1080p videos.
9to5Mac just discovered a solid evidence of has new but yet-unreleased “Apple 3.1″ in the latest version of iOS 5. It means that Apple TV would soon be updated to new Apple 3.1 version since Apple is working for it quietly.
A new AppleTV could integrate Apple’s new A5 processor which offers much faster graphics processing and include true 1080p support. But unless Apple plans on offering 1080p content on iTunes, that feature would be of limited use to the majority of consumers. Fortunately, Apple has been rumored to be prepping movie studios to start submitting 1080p content to iTunes.
It is well rumored that Apple is going to step into worldwide wild TV market in near future, up to 2012 likely. So any new update for existing Apple TV looks odd and seems against Apple’s future plans for television.
Recently, The NYTimes revised this speculation just after Steve Jobs’ death.
But many in the tech industry contend that television is ripe for technological makeover, and that the next big challenge for Apple, after the death of Mr. Jobs, is likely to be in that area.
So guys, it is still not obvious that Apple would go in which direction. Whether Cupertino based company will bring a new update “Apple 3.1” for Apple TV enabling it to support 1080p content through iTunes or it would introduce a brand new traditional Apple TV to dominate over the vast television market.
