Apple is rumored to be planning an Apple TV-specific event in March. The rumor also hints at a new software development kit (SDK) for the set-top box.
Keep in mind that we did recently hear rumors about an update to Apple TV. Whether there could be any hardware at the event isn’t yet clear. However, it’s said that Apple may be pushing to make apps available for the platform. This would make it possible to install applications much like we do on our iOS devices.
Apple TV does run on a version of iOS, so it’s not entirely out of the question.
As for the rumored Apple HDTV set, it’s unlikely we will see anything of the sort anytime soon. Though Jefferies analyst Peter Misek says it may happen this year.
