It could turn out to be a very expensive fall for Apple users. After new iPhones and iPads are released, Cupertino could launch some sort of new TV-related product before the end of the year. This, according to MG Siegler, who recently spoke to John Gruber’s on The Talk Show. According to Siegler, a former TechCrunch reporter, and general partner at Google Ventures.

It also follows many rumors in recent years that suggest that Apple is working on a new entertainment device. Whether that new product is an actual television or next-generation Apple TV set-top box remains to be seen. To hear Siegler’s complete interview, click here.
