Apple is set to respond to Google’s recent foray into home entertainment by re-launching its own Apple TV on an iPhone-sized terminal costing just US $99, according to reports.
Technology news service Engadget claimed that the new device will be capable of supporting 1080p and will include 16 GB of flash storage.
The small device will be geared away from local storage and instead targeted towards use as a portal for cloud storage-based entertainment.
Apple TV faltered when it was first released to market, however a reinvigorated service would likely fare better with a significantly higher volume of online content now available.
According to Engadget the new iteration will also use the same operating system as an iPhone to deliver the familiar tried and tested Apple experience and is expected to be released after the next version of the iPhone, which is scheduled for this summer.
