It may be more than possible that Apple TV technology inherits iPad 2 and iPhone 4S, to include the A5 processor with two cores and increase your RAM.
A dual-core Apple TV can probably mean the 1080P video playback, a restriction of the current model due to the A4 processor. We could also see some 1080P content from iTunes to the output of this latest generation model.
However, the source reminds us that in Apple’s history there are examples of references to products within IOS that never saw the light, like the iPhone 3.2.
This news has shocked the market, we know how much he likes to talk about future releases of Apple. In this sense, Shannon Cross of Cross Research, has imagined an Apple TV with Siri voice to control the device:
An interesting application of Siri would be within the Apple TV (either on the current device or a new version that Apple could launch). We believe this would solve the difficulties of the industry with remote controls … It would be nice to have a TV or a device that could quickly respond to the petition: “I want to see the play of the Yankees / Red Sox”, changing the channel TV without the user guide or use a remote control, or even specify video in HD or standard definition, as you would like HD content when available. Or you can ask the device to record new episodes of a series, without leaving the program you are currently viewing. Finally, since they are in line, Siri enabled TV could see if the iPhone or your computer has received a new message, and allow it to respond accordingly.
As for the Apple TV, it would be illogical to receive an adjustment in both hardware (the technology has already been tested by iPad 2) and in the sale and rental service content, which have very abandoned. It would be an intriguing idea, well, you do not need another thing to answer emails, SMS and update Facebook, among others, to turn on the TV and talk with her.
It seems to me it sounds a bit like science fiction, it is likely that Apple has big plans for Syria and its correlation with all your devices. So why would not understand all its R & D in recent months have been focused on functionality that is not used as a cornerstone thought about user experience for the coming years.
The market is just beginning to understand the potential that Siri has to change forever the way we communicate with the devices. In a couple of years, maybe talking about the last great legacy of Steve Jobs about the semantics and the interaction between man and machine.
