Apple’s (AAPL) “iTV” is a lot like Guns’N’Roses’ chronically delayed Chinese Democracy album: Eventually the rumors about its existence will come true and it will finally be released for public consumption. The latest iTV rumors come to us from Digitimes, which claims that Apple is building a 4K Ultra HD television set with a resolution of 3,840 x 2,160 pixels that will release either in late 2013 or early 2014. Don’t worry about the iTV’s impact on the supplies of iPhones and iPads, however: Unnamed sources tell Digitimes that Apple is “banking on LG Display (LPL) to be able to mass produce Ultra HD TV panels by the second half of the year” while freeing up other Apple component suppliers to work exclusively on other gadgets.
