New Apple TV Remote Control to Feature Touchpad and Two Physical Buttons?
According to the latest report from reliable sources, the remote control for the next-generation Apple TV, which is expected to be unveilled in June at Apple’s Worldwide Developer Conference, will feature two physical buttons, possibly Play/Pause and Mute, and a touchpad instead of the ring-shaped button for navigation. The remote will become a bit thicker, insiders believe. It should be noted, however, that the aforementioned report is based purely on the rumours and experts’ predictions, so you should take it with a few pinches of salt.
Citing sources familiar with Apple's upcoming Apple TV update, The New York Times reports the set-top streamer will come with a remote control that eschews existing directional ring buttons in favor of a touch pad.
Apple's new remote is expected to be slightly thicker than the current iteration and will retain two physical buttons, potentially the play/pause and menu pushers seen on the current device.
Apart from the new remote control, the long-awaited Apple TV is expected to feature an A8 processor, the support of Siri and its own App Store with dedicated applications.
