New Apple TV to Launch at iPhone Event in September: Report
Apple Inc will launch the next generation of its Apple TV set-top box in September, with a new remote and support for Siri voice control, online publisher BuzzFeed reported on Thursday.

The new Apple TV will have a slimmer chassis, a "drastically improved" remote with touch-pad input, increased on-board storage, and an operating system that will support Siri, BuzzFeed said, citing sources familiar with the matter.

The device will be launched with its own App Store and a software development kit for app developers, the website said.

Sources familiar with Apple's plans tell BuzzFeed News that the company intends to announce its next-generation Apple TV in September, at the same event at which it typically unveils its new iPhones. The device itself is pretty much as we described it to you in March, sources say, but "more polished" after some additional tweaks. Expect a refreshed and slimmer chassis and new innards; Apple's A8 system on chip; a new remote that sources say has been "drastically improved" by a touch-pad input; an increase in on-board storage; and an improved operating system that will support Siri voice control. Crucially, the new Apple TV will debut alongside a long-awaited App Store and the software development kit developers need to populate it.

Apple said it declined to comment on rumours and speculation.

The Apple TV has not been refreshed since 2013.

The iPhone maker was expected to unveil a new version in June at its annual Word Wide Developers Conference, but it launched the Apple Music streaming service.
