Apple looks to shake up media landscape with new TV box

Wednesday 16 September 2015 | 15:38 CET | Author: Wiebe Hotte | Background
The latest version of Apple TV offers innovations on a number of fronts compared to its predecessor. The remote control now includes a touch pad and the Siri platform for voice commands, and games can also be played over Apple TV. The new version also adds an app store compared to the simpler, older model (which will remain in production as an entry-level model). The beta version of the tvOS (Apple's new name for the operating system) is already available for developers of video, games and commerce apps to start work.
