The folks at Apple just passed a new version of their Apple TV through the FCC and there are a few changes that are worth taking a look at. The newest iteration of the device is about 4.5mm smaller than the previous version and utilizes some different components.
According to the filing, the new Apple TV utilizes a single antenna for Wi-Fi, which is standard for Apple now. It also reveals an updated version of the A5X processor that's used in the current version of the Apple TV.
Apple says that this is simply a component update to the device, but the new model number and new specs are intriguing nonetheless.
