We have been expecting an Apple TV update for a while. The current Gen 5 device was launched back in 2017, and rumor has it that we may get an update soon. Some say the new device will have more storage space and even a U1 chip to turn it into a new ultra-broadband base station, but rumors don’t end there. Rumor has it that the new Apple TV would also be a good buy for anyone who enjoys gaming.
According to a report from Bloomberg, we might finally get an Apple TV update next year. The new device is expected to have an updated remote control and feature that includes a new processor and up to 128GB of storage. However, Mark Gurman also claims that this new Apple TV will focus on gaming.
“For next year, Apple plans to have an updated box with a stronger focus on games, an updated remote control and a new processor. These changes will fix some issues with the Apple TV box, but the product has to take another big leap – much like the 2015 changes – to stay competitive in the long run. “
We also get information that the new Apple TV remote will come with the Find My application. This means that it is easier to find if it is ever lost, just as you can easily track a lost iPhone or iPad. Rumors also suggest that we may get a new A14 processor to power the show. Most relevant, however, would go hand in hand with Apple Arcade as the new Apple TV could run exclusive games that would not be available on the existing models.

Another of those things that could fall anytime. Apple just doesn’t have the chills 😬😂
I’ll let you know if / when I’m listening to a date. Who knows, maybe Apple can keep it a secret from me 🤗

I wouldn’t hold my breath and wait for the new Apple TV, though, as we’ve been waiting for the updated version to arrive since the first half of 2021 when Jon Prosser said the new 4K 64 / 128GB version – Versions with the A12 processor was ready for dispatch. But unfortunately we are still waiting here.
