Despite no confirmation by Apple, you would be hard-pressed to find an industry analyst or supply chain source that does not believe that Apple will soon unveil an iOS-powered connected HDTV.
Much debate persists regarding the alleged release timeframe of this so-called “iTV.” Although most insiders predict a late 2012 or early 2013 launch, new reports suggest that Apple may publicly confirm the forthcoming iTV launch months before the product is available for purchase to consumers.
On Tuesday, 29 May 2012, Brian White of Topeka Capital Markets told investors that Apple will likely follow its established course when the first iPhone and iPad were revealed. Both products were displayed publicly months before they became available to the customers. The iTV will also likely have a protracted walk down the red carpet before the flat screens finally debut in our homes and places of work.
There is rampant speculation that the iTV may officially be unveiled at World Wide Developer Conference (WWDC) next month. However, there is little credible evidence to suggest such a reality transpiring so soon.
