It’s official. What the rest of the world are calling the iPhone 8 event, ATVG is calling the Apple TV event.
Apple today announced its upcoming Special Event, noting via its offical site that the keynote will be streamed live and viewable on 2nd, 3rd, and 4th generation Apple TVs. By this stage it seems reasonably safe to assume that by the end of the event, the previous generations of hardware will feel a little older, being joined by a 5th generation Apple TV.
The 4K rumours are strong, which is all well and good for media consumption, but what we really care about on this particular site is gaming. If Apple does announce the next generation Apple TV on September 12, bringing 4K muscle to the ring, will it also lean into promoting the gaming potential that this extra grunt under the hood would make possible?
Prior to WWDC this year, we reached out to some developers and asked what they would like to see in a 5th generation Apple TV, netting some interesting results.
Join us on September 12 to see whether rumours crystallise into a playable future, or evaporate into what might’ve been.
