In a recent interview at the D10 conference, Apple CEO Tim Cook said that his company has some amazing things in the works.
We learned Thursday that the world may get a look at one of those amazing things next month at the start of Apple’s WWDC.
This week, sources close to Apple say that the company will lead a demonstration at WWDC of the operating system that will power Apple’s still rumored but much anticipated HDTV.
A trusted source speaking with BGR admits that Apple will do a big unveiling at the conference in order to give third-party manufacturers the time to do their thing and prepare for a major new product launch later this year.
“This new OS is said to be much more feature-complete than the current OS that runs on the Apple TV, and is apparently the one that Apple’s upcoming HDTV will run,” BGR reports. “Yes, that one.”
BGR says that Apple is “actively trying to court manufacturers to use a new ‘control out’ API in order for third-party manufacturers to make accessories that are compatible with the new Apple TV OS and the upcoming iTV.”
