Rumor: Apple TV Will be Updated in the Summer

With a headlining announcement about HBO Now’s streaming service and speculation about cable and TV networks making themselves available on Apple TV, reports are surfacing that the platform will see a hardware refresh in a few months during the company’s Worldwide Developer Conference.

The device, which saw a price cut from $99 to $69 (usually an indicator that something new is on the immediate horizon), will reportedly see Siri integration and an App Store. Other improvements, according to BuzzFeed, will be an A8 processor and expanded storage beyond the 8GB that’s currently in the Apple TV. It may also include HomeKit automation for “smart home” functionality.
