This is much sooner than expected and the television could be announced at their annual WWDC event, which takes part during the middle of the year. There were no names known for this HDTV and the sources have dubbed them as an iTV. The sources go on to state that Samsung have started producing chips for these iTVs, while Sharp is set to produce the displays. Initially, Apple will launch the television in two sizes – 32-inch and 37-inch models. Previous rumours have indicated that Apple will launch a full size television, which will be based their Siri voice recognition software, thus removing the need for remote controls.
