Nothing's on the way just yet, and there might be any time soon, but that won't stop Apple from being prepared.
There seems to be a constant rumor floating around of an Apple branded TV being released to consumers and there's plenty to support that – namely the fact that they seem to constantly be testing out new hardware. The Wall Street Journal has reported that Apple has been working on TV hardware for years with companies like Sharp and Foxconn.
It seems like Apple wants to do more than just build a TV with an Apple TV interface built in – the company wants to make a fundamental shift to the way TV is consumed. That's going to take more than just a bit of hardware. So while Apple will certainly continue to play around with making the TV itself, we're guessing we won't see anything for quite some time.
