Is this the future Apple TV?

“Apple has been working in TV for long enough that we know the company is planning, or has considered multiple strategies to transform television, including creating its own Apple TV-technology-equipped television set,” Jonny Evans writes for Apple Must. “But is this really something it needs to do?”

“We don’t purchase televisions with anything like as much frequency as we purchase other consumer electronic products. When we buy a TV we expect to be using it for many years. We get used to its looming presence,” Evans writes. “We replace the boxes beside our televisions far more frequently. But what if we could replace the television with a box?”

“Perhaps one day we will be able to do just that, reading between the lines of the new Aiptek i70 MobileCinema micro-projector… It projects 70 lumens in sharp, high-contrast images to up to 80 inches. The resolution of 854 x 480 pixels at 80,” Evans writes. “Who knows, as the technology improves perhaps something like this truly could be the future of Apple TV.”

MacDailyNews Take: The tech would have to advance quite a bit to match what we’re seeing right now on our Sony 4K TVs.


  1. I have both a cable sub (Comcast) and an OTT service (Sling) and both are still not the Holy Grail. Sling still includes the ESPN tax- you will pay for sports even if you do not want to or better put the Disney tax since the basic bundle also has the awful Disney Channel.

    A La Carte.

  2. What kind of article is this?

    “Hey, here’s a crappy projector that outputs 70 lumens, 854 x 480 pixels at 80″… therefore Apple will make a television.”

    “I’m a pathetic blogger who was paid to write a post about this product and in order to generate traffic, since there’s little else to attract people, I’m going to use the keywords Apple TV, future, etc…”

    Congratulations MDN, you took the clickbait.

  3. Is this the future Apple TV?

    Answer: “No”

    I hate watching movies on DLP projectors. All I can see are the three colors firing separately creating an annoying flicker. Not very good at action movies… Fine for static powerpoint.
