Apple is set to demonstrate a brand new version of the Apple TV operating system at the Worldwide Developers Conference, which begins on June 11. This OS is said to be more “feature-complete” than the current OS and also is the one that could run on Apple’s long rumored iTV, according to BGR.
Citing a “trusted source,” the report suggests Apple is actively courting manufacturers to use a new “control out” API. This would allow third-party manufacturers to make accessories that are compatible with Apple TV OS and the company’s possible HDTV.
Accordingly, “this would be a huge change in the home theater landscape, which has until this point relied on a mess of thousands of infrared codes and physical cables in order for devices to be interoperable, or Wi-Fi-controlled apps for each component and piece of hardware.”
WWDC 2012 runs from June 11-15, 2012 in San Francisco, California.
