Apple TV 6 with new remote potentially delayed until 2021

The rumor: The sixth-generation Apple TV originally set to debut later this year may not make the cut after all, according to Mark Gurman (86.7% accurate).

  • The new Apple TV will feature “a faster processor for improved gaming”
  • A refreshed remote is also coming, with Find My functionality built-in
  • The set-top box was initially scheduled to ship before the end of 2020, but now it may not come until sometime in 2021

Our take: I’m honestly impressed at this point that the Apple TV hasn’t been updated in three years. With the only internal improvement being a faster processor, it’s unclear what the hold-up really is. The new Find My features in the remote sound nice, but is this really what’s causing the continued delays?
