New Apple TV set-top could launch at iPhone event

  • Global trade intelligence firm Panjiva observes Apple (AAPL +2.1%) received large set-top shipments from Chinese contract manufacturer BYD Precision in August. That might pave the way for a new Apple TV set-top to be unveiled at the Sep. 10 iPhone event. (h/t GigaOm)
  • MG Siegler recently reported hearing Apple will begin selling "some sort of television product" as soon as November. MacRumors observes 546 days have passed since Apple TV received its last refresh, easily surpassing a historical average of 377.
  • A new Apple TV box would almost certainly run on iOS 7, something that in turn could enable game controller support. Time Warner Cable service integration might also be in the cards.

    Three big surprises. If any one of those happen on top of a China Mobile deal which seems likely after todays announcement of a separate China announcement on Sept 11th, its to the moon.

    i'm an apple fanboy, but your predictions of shooting to the moon or seeing AAPL just 10% is a bit of a stretch. it can't even close above 500 at this time with all these announcement. I wouldn't be surprised it drops back into the 460-470 before we see an uptick.
