The new Apple TV hardware announcement is reportedly not happening at WWDC 2015

Apple has apparently decided to postpone the announcement of a new Apple TV at WWDC next week, according to The New York Times. In a sweeping report on what to expect from the annual developer’s conference, the publication says the highly anticipated refresh of Apple’s set-top box is no longer in the cards for Monday’s keynote.

According to the report, the reason for the cancellation of the announcement stems from Apple not considering the product ready to get revealed to the public:
“The company planned as recently as mid-May to use the event to spotlight new Apple TV hardware, along with an improved remote control and a tool kit for developers to make apps for the entertainment device. But those plans were postponed partly because the product was not ready for prime time, according to two people briefed on the product.“
The new hardware for the Apple TV has been rumored in the past to feature updates including Siri voice commands, and a brand new remote for the set-top box, which would include a touchscreen of sorts. While the news of the lack of new hardware is bad enough, this comes hot on the heels of a report earlier in the month that confirmed Apple would not be debuting its subscription TV service at WWDC 2015, either.
