Apple is about to release their innovative TV next year. Things are getting interesting!
Apple TV is about to release next year according to Nikkei Asia Review. The known journalist magazine has speculated that Apple will release its very own TV or set-top box. This first report appeared in a broader report on Apple’s 2021 production plans.
Apple TV Rumors
The rumor has been circulating all year long that the unreleased devices were spotted in an iOS 13.4 beta last January. This then somewhat concluded that the new device features an A12 chip and comes in 64 and 128GB storage sizes.
After the released operating system, there have been snippets of a new Apple TV with an updated remote in iOS 14 code to be shown. This has been also confirmed by Jon Prosser, which also suggested that the device will have an A12X Bionic chip.
However, there is still vague information on the specification of the TV device from storage capacities, remote changes, and updated processor. Despite that, “T1125” is known to be the codename for the Apple TV. And whatever Apple’s plans will be quite exciting for next year.
Apple is also preparing an aggressive production schedule for its high-end computers, including the MacBook Pro and iMac Pro, for 2021, two other people familiar with the matter said. The company is in the midst of replacing Intel central processors in its computer lineups with self-designed CPUs built using technology from British chip designer Arm. Apple already introduced three MacBook models powered by its M1 central processor in late 2020 and announced it will take about two years to fully transition to CPUs designed in-house. The U.S. tech giant is also working on a new Apple TV, a home entertainment device for video-on-demand services, for next year, one of the people said.
Apple TV+ is now in a flimsy state, for they are threatened to be banned in Europe if they won’t follow the proposed 30% European content. The country’s union directives are proposing new legislation that would require streaming services, including Apple TV+, Netflix, and Amazon Prime Video, to contain at least 30% European content or face being shut down across the country.
According to the clause “General Scheme of the Online Safety and Media Regulation Bill“, it has been brought to their attention the overwhelming amount of U.S.-centric content on video streaming services which made this come at hand in response to it. This bill then requires 30% “European Work”.
