Apple is apparently planning to add its official Podcasts app to the fourth-generation Apple TV.
First noted by 9to5Mac, a demo video running in Apple Stores to highlight the new device clearly shows a Podcasts app icon.
Anyone with a third-generation device can use the app to sync with subscriptions through iTunes or on your iOS device.
The lack of a Podcasts app is just one of the puzzling omissions from the new device. Most importantly, the very handy and powerful Remote iOS and Apple Watch app can’t be used to control the new device.
And even though Apple previously stated the new box does support Bluetooth keyboards, that feature has yet to be turned on.
Without those extras, it makes entering your personal information anywhere from a pain to a real privacy risk.
But hopefully Apple will add back all of these features sooner rather than later with a software update.
A 32GB model of the new device is $149 while a 64GB version is $50 more. It can be purchased now through a number of channels, including Apple Stores and the company’s site.
