Back in September when Apple unveiled the iPhone 5s and iPhone 5c, many had expected Apple to take advantage of the event to announce a new Apple TV device as well. Unfortunately that was not the case, but perhaps the new Apple TVs could be announced at Apple’s 22nd of October event where it is expected that the iPad 5, iPad mini 2, and refreshed MacBook Pros could be announced as well. In any case this seems speculation seems to be corroborated by Amazon’s French and German websites where they list the current-gen Apple TV as being unavailable, and that availability is expected to begin from the 23rd of October, a day after Apple’s event which is when we expect Apple to make some of their products available for purchase.
Of course it is entirely possible that Amazon is currently out of stock of the Apple TV and are waiting for new shipments to arrive before sales are resumed, so it is possible that there might not be any new Apple TVs announced on the 22nd of October. Amazon’s French website also lists the Apple TV model as “MD199FD/A” which is the current model of the device, as opposed to an unknown model that could hint at an upcoming refresh. Either way we’ll be keeping our eyes peeled for more info, so if a new Apple TV is something you’re looking forward to, check back with us on the 22nd of October for the details.
