Ah, the Apple iTV: how we love to dream you’re anything more than just a rumour! A fresh batch of whispers from the supply chain suggests that Apple’s smart, potentially iOS-based TV is alive and kicking, with the Cupertino company looking to pop a 4K panel into the television to keep it bang up to date with the latest home entertainment tech trends.
According to DigiTimes, that panel will be supplied by LG Display, and will be between 55 and 65-inches, likely in multiple sizes to suit differing bank balances.
DigiTimes (a source that gets as much wrong as it does right, so treat all this with a little skepticism) also believe that Sharp are in talks with Apple to be a potential secondary supplier.
The source also claims that Sony too are tapping up LG for 4K panels, continuing the partnership established with the Sony KD-84X9005 84-inch television, as Sony prepare to scale up production of the 4K 55- and 65-inch X900 series TVs.
As you’d expect, there’s been no official word from Apple on the news, and likely won’t be until any rumoured device ever sees the light of day.
