In the news on Friday, John Paczowski of BuzzFeed reports that Apple will be announcing a redesigned Apple TV in June at WWDC. The new redesign will also include the all-new App Store for the device, along with a new SDK for developers.
So far we've seen that the Apple TV is nearly as powerful as other iOS devices, running Apple's latest A8 system-on-chip technology. At its 'Spring Forward' event, the company announced its partnership with HBO, along with slashing the price to $69. This also further supports rumors that Apple is looking to unleash a $30-40 per month wed TV streaming service.
Adding an App Store to the Apple TV will further integrate iOS device into the home. We can already see the possibilities with games and third-party gaming controllers for such a device. Who knows, the Apple TV could someday take over home consoles.
