Apple Plans to Relaunched Beats Streaming Service at WWDC, New Apple TV Still Coming ➝

Mark Gurman:

Apple currently plans to introduce [its upcoming Beats-based music streaming service], at least in beta form, at its Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC) in early June.

I’ve never used the Beats music service, but I’ve heard good things about it. Truthfully though, I’m far more excited about what Gurman’s sources are telling him about the future of Apple TV:

Sources say that Apple is also finishing up work on a slimmer Apple TV set-top-box with a more capable and tactile remote control and a redesigned operating system bundled with an App Store.

The Apple TV has been the centerpiece of my home theater setup for over seven years. I’m still incredibly happy with it despite the occasional feeling that Apple’s allowing it to languish. I’ve always felt that Apple could (and should) build an App Store for their little home theater box. And, I’m happy to hear that they’re working on it.
