Apple has recently begun contacting some Apple TV customers via email in order to inform them about a faulty part inside of their set-top boxes.

According to the latest rumors shared by people familiar with the matter, even though the next-generation iPhone will boast of a more efficient processor, 12-megapixel camera, updated NFC and LTE chips, 2GB or RAM, and a number of other noticeable improvements, its market share may see zero or negative growth in the fourth quarter of this year.

The video has been posted to MacManiack’s official YouTube channel and is available below.
