Apple TV hasn't been updated since 2012 but we'll see a complete revamp focused on Apple's own internet TV service this summer.

Several outlets have reported on the revamped Apple TV that should come with a new design, new interface -- and a higher price. It'll focus on providing the ultimate collection of media in one place, but won't feature an HDTV as some rumors suggest.

Internally, Apple will add the A8 chipset (or a chip of similar performance) alongside a much larger amount of internal storage (the current Apple TV features 8 GB of storage). It's not clear if Apple TV will change in terms of design, but we expect it to be a bit bigger than the current version due to the internal specs.

There have been enough hints Apple is planning something big in the TV space for the past two years, with Apple's CEO Tim Cook and executives Eddy Cue claiming the TV experience is rubbish and outdated.

Apple has never confirmed it's working on a new Apple TV or internet TV service but given the repeated hints and the new reports, it's clear something is coming to WWDC in June.

The interface could dramatically change with the introduction of Apple's internet TV service. Apple might make it overlap all other services, allowing the user to search HBO Now, Netflix, Amazon Instant Video, Sling TV and other services for the right channel or TV show.

This would be an awesome introduction to universal search, instead of having a set of apps with their own walled garden incapable of working with the Apple TV.

WWDC 2015 will be held in June. Apple intends to launch its new Apple TV, an internet TV service and iOS 9 and relaunch Beats Music.
