Next Apple TV remote tipped to have a touchpad

Next Apple TV remote tipped to have a touchpad

It seems that Apple is taking a U-turn on many of its hardball stances, most of them attributed to the late Steve Jobs: a non-skeumorphic interface, a large screen iPhone, a smartwatch, and probably a huge iPad that might come with a stylus. Now there might be yet another design decision that would go against its previous gospel: an Apple TV remote with a touchpad. Apple has been preaching the simplicity of its remote for years but now it's adding a bit of complexity. At least it's not doing so with a dozen or so buttons.

YouTube ends support for older apps on iOS, Apple TV, Google TV

Have older tech? YouTube wants you to upgrade. In a blog post today, the YouTube team is announcing they’ll no longer support “certain older” apps. It likely won’t affect most users, and the mobile website will continue to work — but you should be aware, especially if you’re using some dated hardware (some of which is just plain obsolete). YouTube isn’t being picky, either. Everything from Apple TV to gaming consoles are affected. Even Google TV (which is apparently still a thing) is going to need an update!

Next Apple TV rumored to be missing 4K video performance

Next Apple TV rumored to be missing 4K video performance

A new incarnation of Apple TV will be revealed later this year, and the rumors are in: it will be lacking 4K video support. Apple is usually viewed as an early adopter of new, futuristic technology. So, why isn't it clamoring to be the one of the first set-top boxes for the cable-cutting crowd to offer 4K video capability, especially if the A8 chip running the latest generation of iPhones is reputed to be capable of 4K?

Rather than try to create their own TV streaming network, Apple is reportedly asking TV networks to handle the lifting.

Report: New Apple TV coming at WWDC with Siri, new OS

Starting with Steve Jobs, Apple execs have routinely promised a better TV experience, bashing our existing experience along the way. In a lot of ways, they’ve failed to deliver. Apple TV is a neat streaming box, but it doesn’t set itself apart in any notable way. The recent price drop for Apple TV was nice, and quietly suggested something new was coming. It is, according to a new report. In addition to new hardware, Apple is reportedly bringing Siri along for the ride, and a new TV app store.
