Here we go again: Report claims Apple is testing a 65-inch iTV

If rumors and reports from Apple analysts are to be believed, Apple has been on the verge of launching an own-brand television for several years now. Of course, the company has yet to release anything or even hint that it might be working on an HDTV product. That didn’t stop analysts at IBK Securities from fanning the flames once again with a new claim on Sunday that Apple is currently testing a 65-inch OLED panel for possible inclusion in an “iTV.” More →

Is Apple really working on a TV? According to Steve Jobs, the answer is ‘no’

Rumors of Apple’s “iTV” — an own-brand high-definition television Apple is supposedly developing to further its assault on the living room — have been swirling for years now. Rumors pop up all the time that Apple is making headway in its quest to launch a new HDTV line. Then, like clockwork, new rumors come along suggesting that there have been delays and the launch of Apple’s hotly anticipated television has been pushed back. Why does the release of Apple’s HDTV keep getting delayed? As it turns out, it may be because the device simply does not exist. More →

More evidence suggests Apple’s ‘iTV’ plans are real

For the past few years Apple has been rumored countless times to be planning an attack on the TV industry with an actual TV set of its own – often referred to as the “iTV.” The device could be a more serious product than Apple’s billion-dollar Apple TV hobby, but the company is yet to make such plans official. However, one more piece of the puzzle seems to have been uncovered: A company with expertise in high-resolution display technology that could be used for big screen TVs was forced to admit that one of its largest clients is Apple.

Apple TV meets iMac in these gorgeous iTV concepts

Designer Martin Hajek imagined what Apple’s rumored iTV might look like when Apple is finally ready to launch it, and came up with two TV designs based on Apple’s current iMac desktops. However, Hajek bumped the screen size to 55 inches and gave one of the models a gold paint job similar to the gold iPhone 5s. Furthermore, the designer imagined a curved iTV model as well, also generally based on the latest iMac model but featuring a curved display. More →

Apple PrimeSense Acquisition

Apple’s rumored $345M PrimeSense acquisition could be iTV’s secret weapon

Apple’s rumored $345M PrimeSense acquisition could be iTV’s secret weapon

It looks like Apple fans can expect the company’s voice and gesture control technology to kick into high gear in the coming years. According to a report from Israeli newspaper Calcalist, Apple has acquired Israel-based PrimeSense. The company bills itself as a “natural interaction solutions” provider, and it is best known for having created Microsoft’s Kinect sensor, which allows Xbox users to control their consoles with voice commands and to control gameplay simply by moving their bodies. Kinect, of course, become the fastest-selling consumer electronics device on record following its debut in 2010. More →

Solid source says Apple’s ‘iTV’ launch is still two years away

While at least one analyst (with a terrible track record, we might add) continues to insist that Apple’s own-brand television set will debut in 2014, reports from more reliable sources suggest otherwise. DisplaySearch on Monday stated that Apple scrapped its plans to debut HDTVs in 2014 in order to focus more on wearable computing. Now, the most reliable Apple analyst on the planet has reaffirmed that notion and stated that we’re still at least two years away from seeing Apple launch a flat panel HDTV. More →

Apple reportedly scraps plans to launch an ‘iTV’ in 2014

Apple reportedly scraps plans to launch an ‘iTV’ in 2014

Apple’s mythical television, which has gained the status of Bigfoot and UFOs in the technology media world, has again been reportedly put on hold. DisplaySearch’s supply chain sources claim that Apple has cooled to the idea of releasing its own television set in 2014 and will instead focus on wearable computers such as smartwatches. The big hangup for Apple right now, claims DisplaySearch, isn’t the television’s hardware or software but the content it will offer with its new “iTV.” More →

Reading between the lines: Get ready for an exciting 2014 for Apple

Monday night on Apple’s earnings call, CEO Tim Cook talked about new product categories in his opening remarks. While this isn’t new news, his further explanation hinted at what Apple could be cooking up next in Cupertino. “In terms of new product categories, specifically if you look at the skills that Apple has from hardware, software and services and at incredible app ecosystems, these set of things are very, very unique,” Cook said on the call. “I think no one has a set of skills like us and we obviously believe that we can use our skills in building other great products that are in categories that represent areas where we do not participate today. So we’re pretty confident about that.” More →

Apple will reportedly debut two ultra HDTV models next year

New iPad tablets are on all of our minds Tuesday morning but after something of a drought on “iTV” speculation, a new report claims Apple will debut two new television models late next year. Speaking with Bloomberg recently, Advanced Research analyst Masahiko Ishino stated that Apple is indeed still developing a high-definition flat panel television and it will launch two versions of the HDTV in 2014. According to the report, Apple will release a 55-inch HDTV priced at about $1,500 and a 65-inch model priced around $2,000, and both televisions will feature “ultra HD” 4K resolution. Ishino says that Apple’s TVs will feature a borderless design, displays supplied by LG Display, graphics processors supplied by Samsung and Gorilla Glass 3 glass sheets supplied by Corning.

The Boy Genius Report: The Apple TV that no one understands and the reinvention of television

The Boy Genius Report: The Apple TV that no one understands and the reinvention of television

It’s not a rumor, but a fact that Apple is looking at bringing a game-changing TV experience out of Cupertino. We just don’t know when or how. Or do we? Generally when the Apple TV is discussed, it takes the form of either the current Apple TV, which is a set-top box, or an Apple-branded high-definition television set. I am still not convinced Apple will make its own television, though it’s certainly possible. However, a company that prides itself on the end experience would face many obstacles with a 46-inch or even larger TV. More →

Apple reportedly blows off cable companies, talks directly with HBO, ESPN for iTV service

Apple has apparently grown tired of playing nice with the incumbent cable providers. Unnamed sources tell Quartz that the company has started employing “a new strategy of talking directly to content providers” for a long-discussed Internet television service after “years of halting negotiations with cable companies haven’t gotten Apple much closer to its grand vision for television.” Quartz says that Apple is now in talks with HBO, ESPN and Viacom to bring content to a future online television platform that would presumably compete with incumbent cable providers.

Apple iTV Release Date Rumor 2014

Apple once again rumored to be working on ‘iTV’ for 2014 launch

By on August 16, 2013 at 8:30 PM.

Apple once again rumored to be working on ‘iTV’ for 2014 launch

Yes, rumors about Apple releasing its own television set are still flying around. Taiwan’s Economic Daily News claims that Apple, Foxconn and Corning are all hard at work on making a “fully flat” television set that will supposedly come to market in 2014. The Economic Daily News’ sources also say that Apple is testing out two different TV models that measure in at 55 inches and 60 inches. We’ve been down this road again and again with Apple’s long-rumored iTV, however, so this latest report could very well be the latest piece of industry chatter that doesn’t amount to anything.

Forbes: Don’t expect anything ‘new’ from Apple in 2013

Apple has plenty of new products in store for consumers in 2013, including new iPhones, new iPads, a new iPad mini and new computers. According to Forbes, however, Apple won’t really launch anything “new” anytime soon. Forbes contributor Haydn Shaughnessy on Wednesday writes that we won’t see any new iconic products like the iPad, iPhone or MacBook Air from Apple in 2013. Apple does have a couple of new products like the “iWatch” and “iTV” in development, but according to Shaughnessy they won’t see the light of day this year due to various issues. More →
