Apple TV set seem to have disappeared from the rumors related to future innovations of the Cupertino company. Alone only Piper Jaffray analyst Gene Munster does not give up, and again, for the third time, carries the date of issue full TV set from Apple.
The first Munster forecast about Apple TV happened back in 2011 at a conference IGNITION. When it became clear that the situation is developing quite differently, the analyst made in late 2012, moving the TV for 2013. Of course, as we all know, nothing like Apple has not introduced, but because in the past year, Gene Munster took a pause, to return with a new outlook in 2014.
In an interview with Business Insider, Munster said that television was indeed plans to Apple, but the company took a break to spread the launch of new product categories. Thus, last September were presented Apple Watch, which means that in the near future, expect more and the TV is not worth it. However, the analyst looks to the future with optimism: Apple will release a full-fledged TV in 2016.
It is noteworthy that not confuse Gene Munster has two specific slip, as he says, not even confident about the year 2016, and sales volumes of the potential of the device. Analysts believe that Apple has in the first year of the “bite” 10% of the market of smart TVs, which is about 22 million copies sold. Of course, if every year to say that Apple will release a television, then sometime Munster could be right. In the meantime, continue to perceive this information with skepticism. All probably know only in Cupertino. [via 9to5mac]
