Low Stock of Refurbished Apple TV Points To Refresh
6 Sep 2013 patrick mifsud 0
AppleInsider has noted that the Online Apple Store’s refurbished product webpage no longer shows the Apple TV as available. Apple recently cut the price of the refurbished device to $75 in early August, down from $85 as seen in the above image. It is possible that Apple has simply run out of stock, the timing of the lack of refurbished Apple TV’s align with recent rumors of a possible product refresh.
A report on Tuesday stated that Apple took receipt of three large shipments from Chinese partner manufacturer BYD Precision in August, the contents of each described as “Set Top Boxes.” The information was discovered in Bills of Lading from the U.S. Department of Homeland Security.
Up until the past few days, there hasn’t been many rumours to do with a new Apple TV, as most media attention has been focused on the iPhone 5S and iPhone 5C. Apple has been lately updating existing content,by adding channels like Vevo, Disney, Weather and Smithsonian in late August, while a beta of the next Apple TV software released in July had iTunes purchasing added again. The Apple TV’s last refreshed was in March 2012, adding 1080p output to the unit while retaining the earlier model’s design.
Apple has scheduled a media event for September 10 which is expected to see the announcement of new iPhone models. Although its only rumours, it is possible that Apple might be planning to announce a New Apple TV product with the new iPhone.Patrick Mifsud is
