Apple has instructed manufacturers to start their work of developing television sets that are expected to enter the market in the first quarter of the coming year. And get ready and new monitor stands for this latest TV set in your living room too. According to DigiTimes the launching in the first quarter will no doubt manage plenty of time for the company to arrange its second and third quarter launching.

Sometimes ago a rumor developed in the tech world that Apple was preparing to launch television sets but then nothing happen. A few years ago Apple launched its TV set top box. But it did not create much impression on people’s mind. Apple’s then CEO Steve Jobs also declared it as “Apple’s hobby”. The set top boxes had problem in delivery according to Jobs. It seems that the company is launching their television sets to reinvent another line up of redesigned set top boxes.
Steve Jobs biography writer Walter Isaacson has indicated in his book that Jobs had clear intention to enter the television market and from this the tech world has come to the conclusion that iTV rumor is going to be true. It is true that manufacturing an iTV device inside a set is a quite complicated task but if news like the introduction of iCloud-based DVR are to be believed then the iTV device is much believable a plan to materialized.
