Revamped Apple TV models reportedly in testing with A12/14 chips

The rumor: Apple is working to expand Apple Arcade in the future with upgraded Apple TV hardware, according to Fudge (90.9% accurate).

  • Both a model with an A12x/z processor and ‘A14x-like’ chip are currently in development
  • Mark Gurman (87.8% accurate) suggested a new Apple TV could launch as soon as later this year
  • Apple is also said to be continuing work on a native game controller

Our take: Only Apple knows what the hold-up on these new Apple TV models is being caused by. We may still see one later this year, but it could have been delayed until 2021.
