The Upcoming Fourth-Gen Apple TV To Be Priced Below $200
New reports have emerged about the upcoming Apple TV fourth-gen, that have revealed its pricing, availability, and product lineup plans. The new Apple TV will be priced below $200 and will be available in October. The price of this new device could range between $149 to $199, both having been noted as being higher than the third-gen Apple TV.
This new box will be more expensive than its competitors, however, Apple has decided to keep its $69 third-gen device on sale as an entry level model within the Apple TV product line. The Apple TV 4 is expected to be ‘thicker and slightly wider’ than its predecessor.
Some features that might be included in the new Apple TV would be – Siri support, a new remote control, an App Store with a Software Development Kit for developers, and a refreshed user interface. Other reports also imply, that Apple might plan to release a cable-replacing streaming TV service that bundles multiple television channels for a price as low as $40 per month, however the Apple TV would still require logins to cable networks to unlock the content.
This software that is supposed to enable Apple’s cable-replacement service is currently planned to also become available for the third-generation Apple TV. However, it has also been reported that the current model will not receive support for the upcoming App Store, nor will it be directly controllable by Siri.
Apple plans to reveal the iPhone 6s and 6s Plus on the 9th of September 2015. These two new devices are expected to come with the Force Touch technology, a new Rose Gold colour option, 12MP camera with 4K video, wireless chips from Qualcomm, A9 processors and improved front facing cameras. While, there were rumours about the unveiling of a third device, that was speculated as being the iPhone 6C – new reports deny it.
