Apple TV with Siri and App Store could finally arrive in September

A new Apple TV may finally be on the way. According to BuzzFeed News, Apple plans to announce an overhauled Apple TV in September, likely during the same event that it'll unveil new iPhones. The new Apple TV is supposed to bring some major changes to the device, including an App Store, voice control with Siri, and an improved remote with a touch pad on it. The box itself is supposed to be slimmer, and it should have some speed improvements on the inside. It would mark the first update to the Apple TV since 2012.

If all those expected new features sound familiar, it's because BuzzFeed News reported most of them back in the spring. At the time, Apple was reportedly planning to unveil the new Apple TV in June, but those plans were seemingly pushed back. Now, after making changes to make the device "more polished," it's apparently once again headed toward an announcement. Notably, Apple isn't believed to be ready to discuss the TV streaming service that it's said to be working on. As other reports have stated, that effort is likely held up by the need for more deals with networks.
