Apple TV tipped for September, but without TV service

This year's WWDC has come and gone and still no sign of the expected, or hoped, refresh of the Apple TV. Well, there's still September and this time it's sure to be announced.

This remote could very well be the first mention of a remote that could control all manner of Apple devices, too.
