All rumors suggest that Apple will launch a new set top box this year. Among their most important innovations are an App Store itself and integration with Siri. From the beginning it was believed that new iPhone would be presented with an iPad and Apple TV 4, which the latest rumors seem to confirm. Yes, it seems that once presented the new set-top box Apple still have to wait about a month to acquire if we want to.

If the Apple TV 4 comes with its own App Store, with games, with web browser with Siri, etc.
