Report: Apple TV Update Coming in June 2015

Hot on the heels of Apple's HBO Now announcement comes a new report claiming Apple TV hardware will be refreshed this summer.

Pointing to verbiage on Apple's website stating that Apple TV is "starting at $69", John Paczkowski expects a more expensive version to be announced at WWDC. Besides updated hardware the new Apple TV would include an app store, which requires an SDK and developers to create apps for the device.

Keynote presentations have a time limit, and it's a good thing because discussing 1500 new iOS 7 APIs could get tiring. iPhone owners are now used to hundreds of improvements and new features added in every major iOS release, and iOS 7 is no different.

He went into a bit more detail when describing activation lock, which makes it harder for thieves to use stolen iOS devices.
