Apple television set release as planned to be made in 2014 is reported to be further delayed as Apple is currently focusing more on the wearable devices. The long-awaited hardware Apple television unit called the iTV might be released in 2015 while Apple currently focuses on the new iWatch technology.
The large-screen Apple television set which was rumored to be supporting 4K resolution which was primarily being designed to be used with the Apple TV.
“According to sources in the TV supply chain, it appears that Apple’s long-rumored TV plans, which were far from concrete anyway, have been put on hold again, possibly to be replaced by a rollout of wearable devices. Although many financial and industry analysts have been speculating about Apple’s entrance into the TV business via an actual TV (instead of the Apple TV “hobby” set-top-box) for years, during the last year the rumor-mill has shifted into high gear about a 2014 introduction. Indeed, our own information from TV supply chain sources pointed to the fact that Apple appeared to be lining up resources for a product introduction in the second half of 2014, likely with 2-3 large screen sizes and 4K resolution.
However, the hangup has always been the content,” reports DisplaySearch.
Apple is currently focusing on the new iWatch devices which are rumored to be running a complete iOS in them. Its release would probably be made in the coming year.
One of Apple’s prime priority currently are also its iPhones and iPads which don’t really have an abundant supply. Apple, therefore decided to leave aside the hard stuff and focus on these products.
