Apple’s secret device is coded A1844, but what is it actually? It’s not known what the device is but an FCC application for the Apple-built hardware showed up and some interesting details showed up which frankly raises more questions than answers.
A new Apple TV?
French website Consomac released this information that it is similar to an Apple TV 4th-gen box but no pictures or details is given about what it actually does. AppleInsider a prominent Apple news centric blog revealed that the test done for this device shows Bluetooth and NFC connectivity which is not currently included in the Apple TV but then it oddly doesn’t mention WIFI connectivity which might be a result of re-used hardware or that it’s not present. The filing contains a diagram that shows screw holes and shapes similar to current Apple TV.
4K and HDR
This is the perfect time for Apple to release a new version of Apple TV with 4K and HDR capabilities which will pair with the new iPhone 7 so it can display wider and more vibrant and vivid color amalgamations. Also, a hardware update can also happen but the power specifications of this device are not similar to current models. Other possible options for this mysterious device could be that it is meant to use in Apple Stores or any other stores which is compatible with Apple pay or also could be Apple home automation hub like Google “Nest”. At this current moment, it’s only a guessing game.
So what do you think this new Apple device could be?
