Apple Keeping Quiet On Apple TV- Updated Software May Appear Next Week With iOS 7 Release
Apple stayed quiet about any TV development plans to keep the limelight on the iPhone 5s and 5c yesterday. However, An article in Pocket Lint states that iTunes Radio and iOS 7 are getting a September 18th release date, making it look likely the new Apple TV update will come on the same day.
According to an article in All Things D, Apple didn't talk about its web video box either, but it is definitely coming. People familiar with Apple's plans say that the Apple TV is scheduled to release next week with the iOS7 software, where one of the features on the TV will be a slightly different AirPlay system. Basically, the software will allow people that have bought content from iTunes may play their content on other peoples' TV through the AirPlay system.

This is significant because the owner of the content can tell a system that they don't own to play their content from the cloud-a change from the current system only allowing content from the owner's devices. This is a similar setup to Google's Chromecast device.
A Gizmodo report says that this is still a rumor, and there are no absolute plans-just speculations that this may be what is happening. It would be a good idea, however, because the current system is a bit clunky, and it is inconvenient to have all content downloaded on an iPhone or iPad before using it from there. However, since the rumors speculate it to be opening next week, we will not have to wait very long to find out.
