Apple has announced that there won’t be a major upgrade to their TV service — which hasn’t seen much of an improvement since 2012.
At Appleâ€™s developer conference next week weâ€™ll hear all the software goodies the company has planned in 2015, but we may not get any news about one of its most highly anticipated pieces of hardware: its new set-top box, the Apple TV.
Itâ€™s been three years since weâ€™ve seen a spec update to this little device, and we may have to keep waiting. This yearâ€™s Apple event may be completely TV free, including not only a delayed set top box but also a set back on Appleâ€™s plans for its own TV streaming service, something similar to Sling TV and PlayStation Vue.
Weâ€™ve known for awhile that Apple was hard-pressed to meet the WWDC deadline for the TV service because it wanted local television included in the deal. Now, it seems that, yes, even the hardware will be ghostly rumored apparition this year as well, according toÂ The New York Times.
Apple does have plans to relaunch Apple TVâ€”and in a pretty big way, tooâ€”but weâ€™ll have to put up with just one last postponement.
