Apple has and always been in news for one reason or the other that varies from potential lawsuits to new iPhones to an upgraded version of its iOS platform. And this year, it's no different with the company coming into news once again with its upcoming revamped Apple TV set-top-box.
The heavily rumored device has been in news for quite some time now with reports arriving previously about a revamped Apple TV set-top-box being in the works, followed by rumors about the new box likely be introduced in the first half of 2014.
However, new reports of sightings regarding the same are now claiming about the existence of a potential Apple TV 4.1 which have been unearthed via the latest iOS 7 builds.
Sighted first by 9To5Mac, the report states that the reference regarding a new Apple TV hardware has been attained via the inside of an Apple TV framework which is related to the device's AirPlay functionality.
"The mention of the next Apple TV is the highlighted 'AppleTV4.1.' The current Apple TV is 'AppleTV3.2' while '3.1' is the 1080P model introduced in March 2012, and 2.1 is the first iOS model introduced in September 2010," the report states.
And while everything here is still in a state of rumor, if indeed true, the post could also fall in place with Apple CEO Tim Cook's confirmation last week about introducing "new categories" that will look to add to its already large list that also includes a rumored Apple-powered iWatch.
The last time the reports of a revamped Apple TV were making rounds in the blogosphere was when it was reported that a new box is likely be introduced in the first half of 2014.
