New Apple TV coming?

Apple to update its set-top box with A5X processor and (slightly) smaller frame

Apple looks to have an update to the Apple TV set-top box in the offing, with an FCC filing revealing that Apple's created a slightly smaller version of the little black box sporting a new model number – A1469. And it is a tiny size difference – 93.78 square mm versus the current version's 98 square mm.

Apple has also rolled out a software update for the Apple TV – adding Bluetooth keyboard support, Up Next and iTunes in the Cloud – that includes a previously-unseen "AppleTV3,2" model.

Meanwhile, tech blog AnandTech has revealed that the updated Apple TV will pack an A5X processor (as opposed to the current version's A5 processor) and a new single antenna setup.

While an updated Apple TV is no Apple iTV television set, it's nice to know that Apple still has one eye on your living room TV.
