A new version of Apple TV may not be about to surface after all, a fresh report concerning Tim Cook and pals' televisual plans says.
TechCrunch columnist and Google Ventures general partner MG Siegler wrote on his blog that the latest update to Apple's set-top box may have been 'delayed a bit'.
Siegler claims that nothing is concrete, but that -- while we might see a slightly tweaked version of Apple TV at Apple's event on Tuesday -- a radically revamped model that has a new control method may not be ready yet.
The hope-dampening report follows claims back in the summer from Siegler that Apple was cooking up a version of Apple TV for a November debut, Business Insider reported in August.
Amazon's French and German sites yanked the current Apple TV from sale recently, saying that the set-top system, which feeds movies and TV from iTunes directly into your telly, would be back in stock on 23 October -- the day after Apple's upcoming event.
Apple hasn't offered a significantly refreshed version of Apple TV in ages, with the last minor update coming in January this year.
