The Apple TV started off as just a hobby project, but it eventually evolved into a serious device with plenty of content to drive it forward.
Apple issued invites to members of the press for its upcoming media event on Thursday, October 16 at the Town Hall auditorium on its Cupertino-based campus. The tagline for the invite was “it’s been way too long,” leading many to speculate as to what Apple could potentially be hinting at with this message. We have a possible explanation ahead.
In late July, it was rumored that Apple would be adding the FXNOW channel to their Apple TV lineup, and along with it something called “Simpsons World,” which would be a one-stop shop for all Simpsons content. On Tuesday, September 23, at least half of that came to fruition.
Following the public release of the iOS 8 software update for compatible iPhone, iPad and iPod touch models, Apple has also gone ahead and released a software update for Apple TV that features a brand new Beats Music channel, visual overhaul with minimalistic icons and support for iOS 8 features like Family Sharing and iCloud Photo Support.
