It's been rumored for years, but this time it looks like Apple really will launch a brand new Apple TV tomorrow. We're starting to learn about some of the details of what the new set-top box will include.
The new Apple TV, a major overhaul of the old $69 model, is supposed to have the powerful A8 chip and integrate Siri. The Apple rumor mill also says there'll be a new remote with motion sensors for gaming. And the new machine is said to start at $149.
The big feature everyone is looking forward to is universal search. That means you can search once for a movie or TV show and get results from a variety of sources, like iTunes, Netflix, HBO Go, etc. Previously, you had to search each source for what you wanted to watch. With the new Apple TV, you'll just have to choose which streaming service to use.
Universal search will be done via Siri, which will be a huge improvement for users on its own. Previous Apple TV units only had text search, and if you didn't use the Remote app on your smartphone or tablet, using the simple remote that came with those models took forever to input text.
This is the next big leap for Apple, and we'll let you know all the details as they're released at tomorrow's event. Stay tuned to our Happening Now page for the latest.
