Apple's much-rumored HDTV plans have reportedly been delayed by content deals, likely pushing a possible introduction into 2015 at the earliest, reports NPD DisplaySearch analyst Paul Gagnon. Gagnon says that sources in Apple's supply chain informed him of the delay, after previously pointing to a late 2014 introduction. Though Apple's TV plans seem to be close to materializing every so often, they've inevitably seemed to slip away again as rumors vanish and reports surface of content issues plaguing its development. Gagnon suggests that Apple's focus for next year may have switched to wearables instead, mirroring other reports that it plans to announce a smartwatch sometime next year.
