Apple is reportedly preparing to release a new 6th-generation Apple TV set-top box, according to a recent leak.
Firstly, the report indicates that Apple will start offering 64GB and 128GB storage configurations with the upcoming Apple TV. This extra space is so that users have more room for Apple Arcade titles.
Additionally, Apple is reportedly planning to add a ‘Kids Mode’ to tvOS. The Kids Mode would allow parents to create a separate account for their children with the option to control what applications their kids can access.
iOS’ ‘Screen Time’ is also going to make its way to tvOS. Screen Time would be available on both ‘Kids Mode’ and the normal mode as well. Additionally, the report suggests that Apple is looking to work on a ‘redesigned Apple TV+ with a greater focus on content,” but what that means is unclear.
The new Apple TV set-top box is rumoured to launch before the end of the year, but that could change due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The new Apple TV is expected to look the same as the previous hardware.
