New Apple TV 2017 release date rumours UK: When will Apple release the 5th-gen Apple TV?
When will Apple update the Apple TV?
A new Apple TV, capable of playing 4K content, may launch this year, according to a Bloomberg report.
This fifth-generation Apple TV, codenamed J105, will also offer “more vivid” colours, according to Bloomberg’s sources.
As for when in 2017 the new Apple TV will launch, it seems most likely that a new Apple TV box would launch in September alongside new iPhones and a new iOS operating system.
However, the Apple TV first went on sale in March 2007, so a tenth anniversary launch in March 2017 would be pertinent.
While Apple tends to dislike historical wallowing – famously refusing to build a museum in its new headquarters because “we’re focused on the future, not the past” – we think there is a precedent for an anniversary product in the form of the Twentieth Anniversary Mac (number 4 in our article The 5 weirdest Macs of all time).
