In one of those stories that reads a bit like Apple managing expectations in advance of WWDC, Brian Chen of The New York Times reports that there won’t be new Apple TV hardware at the event:
Yet one much ballyhooed device will be absent from the conference: a new Apple TV, Apple’s set-top box for televisions. The company planned as recently as mid-May to use the event to spotlight new Apple TV hardware, along with an improved remote control and a tool kit for developers to make apps for the entertainment device. But those plans were postponed partly because the product was not ready for prime time, according to two people briefed on the product.
Chen says native Apple Watch apps, a new streaming music service, updates to OS X and iOS are still on the agenda.
