Apple to launch updated iOS based ‘TV set-top box’ in first half of 2014

Washington, Jan. 24: Apple is reportedly planning to release an updated version of its TV set-top box in first half of 2014 with revamped operating system based more closely on iOS.

According to a report by 9to5Mac, the product is already into testing, and is expected to include a version of the App Store to house content from third-party developers, Cnet reports.

However, it might come as a disappointment for those hoping the company would finally come out with an actual Apple TV set

Another report from iLounge also revealed that Apple TV would be updating its gaming support, allowing for games to be directly downloaded to the set, rather than having to go through an iOS device. (ANI)
