It might not be THE Apple TV that the tech world is obsessed with but there will be a refreshed Apple TV thanks to details from an FCC filing.
Sporting the model number A1469 it comes in at 4.22mm smaller than the current-generation Apple TV. All the paper work seems legitimate and filed the FCC in December 2012. and with the third-generation Apple TV being released on March 7, 2012 we could well be due for an update.
Released on March 7, 2012, so the time is right for it to be refreshed.
Update: Anandtech has peeked through the filings and the source code, finding a new single antenna setup that follows the design of other iDevices, and reference to an updated A5X SoC at its heart.
