WWDC 2012: Apple To Show Off Apple TV OS Update
Apple may be preparing to show off a new update to the Apple TV that will round out the device’s feature set, according to a recent report. The new update will replace the current Apple TV’s version of iOS with the software that will be running on the iTV.
Citing “a trusted source,” BGR is reporting that Apple has been in talks with manufacturers to get them to support a “control out” feature that would allow users to control a variety of third-party accessories (including cable set top boxes) with their Apple Remote, or from the iOS Remote app.
BGR’s source claims that only the Apple TV’s OS update will be shown off at WWDC. Apple appears to be saving the HDTV announcement for a later date.
