Apple may have shown off two brand new iPhones last week and confirmed a date for iOS 7 and iTunes Radio, but very little was made of Apple TV. Leading up to the event, it was rumored Apple would release a new version of its media streaming box, but instead Apple simply announced a software refresh alongside the launch of iOS 7. But if new reports are to be believed, we may not be too far off from new hardware after all. 9to5Mac reports that we may see brand new Apple TVs as soon as October, when Apple is also rumored to launch new iPads and iPad minis. So what might these new Apple TVs feature? Apple has reportedly been testing motion sensors similar to those found in Microsoft’s Kinect, which would help turn the Apple TV into a gaming platform. There’s also a strong possibility that Apple could include support for 4K video output. Whatever the next version of Apple TV holds, we probably won’t have to wait long to find out.
