Apple has discontinued the third-generation Apple TV and removed the device from its online store. Moreover, the company confirmed that it will no longer produce and officially promote the older set-top box, focusing on the newer Apple TV 4 working on tvOS.

Earlier today, 9to5Mac obtained an email intended for Apple employees and education partners informing about the news.

Below you can find a short fragment from the official statement:

Effective immediately, Apple TV (3rd generation), MD/199LL/A, has reached end of life and is now discontinued. The Apple Supply team is going to fulfill all shippable backlog.

Apple released the Apple TV 3 in 2012. In terms of the functionality, it is completely different from the fourth-generation device with built-in Siri and updated hardware released in 2015.

Even though the set-top box is discontinued, you can still purchase a refurbished Apple TV 3 for $59. The prices for the Apple TV 4 start from $149.
