Apple’s next big product? If you believe one analyst, it’ll be a television set. “We continue to believe that Apple is developing a television that will succeed its current Apple TV set-top-box, likely in late [calendar year] 2012,” Gene Munster, an analyst with Piper Jaffray, wrote in a June 23 research note. “As recently as May 11 the US Patent & Trademark Office has published Apple patents relating to television-specific technology,” including one for “advanced TV broadcast menus.” Moreover, he sees an Apple television as a radical game-changer for many of the company’s core products, including iCloud and the App Store. “Apple may add movies and TV shows purchased or rented in iTunes to the iCloud service, which could be viewed on a TV,” he wrote. “Apple’s strong iOS developer community would likely jump at the chance to build apps for an Apple Television, and Apple’s iOS users would likely jump at the chance to buy one.”
