What's This?

Apple is planning to release its new version of Apple TV at a higher price than the previous versions. The upgraded Apple TV will be priced at either $200 or $150 and will be released by October, as reported by 9 to 5 Mac.


The digital media player will be announced at a September 9 press event in San Francisco. The updated streaming box will have a variety of upgrades including more robust hardware, enhanced remote control, and a similar AppStore that is available on iPhones and iPads that will bring more services to Apple TV.

The current Apple TV, which is priced at $69, does not feature any of the upcoming facilities of the AppStore.

However, what the first two models will miss out on will be Apple’s streaming service. There are also talks about Apple’s own cable-replacing streaming TV service, which will bring together multiple channels and cost $40 a month.

In addition to Apple TV, the September 9 event will also feature the unveiling of updated versions of iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus, and the iPad Pro.
