Now 4K OLED panel has come though, but Apple's streaming service is not ready, the relevant application has just appeared on the App Store. If Apple wants to do the TV, it takes time to wait, Apple product experience for rigor worthy of respect.
In 2010, Apple released a small black box, we had become the Apple TV users. Although, up to now, we have not upgraded Apple TV, but it is changing the way we consume media.
Siri now supports the Apple TV has been released, this product rose to a new height. Apple CEO Cook and executives have said Eddy Cue, Apple TV is no longer just a "hobby."
Apple TV is not only no longer a hobby, it will also be able to connect to most TV via HDMI 2. Of course, the main reason Apple has not yet announced their own television service. When Apple released the service time, Apple TV you can start using the HDMI 1.
The new boxes, an upcoming streaming service, for the future lay the foundation for genuine Apple TV. Why, because the iMac.
Five years ago, we started using a laptop. A few days ago, we upgraded to the latest 27-inch Retina 5K iMac. After using iMac, I think Apple wants a TV set.
Many years ago, Apple has one ad, showing different between the iMac and Dell. When comparing the two products face to face, when the different between the two is prominent, Dell has a lot of cable used to connect accessories. In contrast, Apple's solution is more simple. It is truly plug and play. Fast-forward to today, you can remove the two cables, mouse and keyboard from the iMac. Now, you really need only one cable, the charging time.
Today's TV looks like when the case of Dell, a little worse. If you have an Apple TV set-top box or other, which generally will have a power cord and an HDMI cable. If your home is cable television, then cable the number even more. Suppose, you have a game, then there is a high quality impression, a router. You can imagine how those lines chaos,
If Apple to build a TV, Apple will build as the build iMac as a TV, with a clear, detailed picture quality, provide excellent audio experience, the appearance of simple and beautiful.
The new Apple TV set-top box may be the first step in the creation of Apple TV. The second step is the streaming service. Once these two elements in place, the third step - the true Apple TV is coming.
What time? Probably in 2017 or 2018, at that time, 4K should already popular.
Yes, now you can already buy 4K TV, and many 4K TV prices are becoming more able to withstand. However, for Apple, if Apple wants a TV to be successful, Apple will need to have a huge influence in these two areas. Currently, most people still use 1080p TV, another two years, 4K TV the opportunity to become the first choice to buy a TV set.
I know what you're thinking: TV salesman is terrible, there is no profit. You're right, but you think about it, a lot of people also said the PC business and smartphone business has not been profitable. Only those who produce excellent products, design and control of their own operating system vendors gained a profit. Who is such a vendor, Apple.
If Apple to manufacture a TV, it will not be a clumsy own screen, and then paste and leave Apple Logo TV. It would be like the iMac as a perfect TV that time, and now the Apple TV looks will become awkward.
2013, Apple acquired a company called Primesense, the company's technology had been used in the Microsoft Kinect, it will be used in future Apple TV-related technologies.
If Apple really decided to do television, it will have more than specialized hardware technology, there will be specialized software and services, so the future will have tvOS and Apple TV service.
This might be a long-term goal of the Apple TV, but Apple also need to wait, you need to prepare. Now 4K OLED panel has come though, but Apple's streaming service is not ready, the relevant application has just appeared on the App Store. If Apple wants to do the TV, it takes time to wait, Apple product experience for rigor worthy of respect.
So, before the arrival of the Apple TV, we would like to "enjoy" messy cable TV right now.
About Apple will release the TV has long been rumored, but it, like the legendary Apple Car confusing.
Last year, Apple CEO Tim Cook has published the television views, he believes the current TV product is obsolete, as outdated as the 1970s, implying that Apple believes the current so-called Smart TV is not smart, does not really change the TV product attributes, the overall experience and 40 years ago there is no essential difference.
In response to "Apple TV product whether it intends to develop?" This question, Cook did not disclose specific details about the Apple iTV television products, he also said, "Apple believe that good things will happen in the future," Apple seems to enter and subvert television industry has a high confidence.
This reminds us of the Cook recently said in an interview, the automotive industry will seem to be a huge change, very large. Automotive industry is at a critical point on the upheaval, not just incremental changes.
Cook, Apple did not respond to whether you want to manufacture their own car problems, but he said, a series of technical changes have been in place for an outsider to enter the industry provides a rare opportunity.
From Cook's statement, as well as Apple's series of actions (including recruitment, acquisition of the company), Apple TV and Apple is very likely to become a reality car.
