Apple updating Apple TV with minor 'component change,' makes appearance at FCC

Apple's Apple TV device has made an appearance at the FCC with a new version number. Some thought that this new device would be the fourth generation Apple TV, but it turns out that it is just a minor component change. An Apple spokesperson confirmed that the new version number was required to clear regulatory officials.

"We sometimes make component changes which require an updated model number for regulatory approval," an Apple spokesperson confirmed in a statement.

 

The changes reportedly include an A5X processor, which is the same as the one used in the third-gen iPad, and a new single antenna setup. The new device doesn't have a definite launch time and there will not be a clear way to tell the devices apart without looking at the version number.
