Apple TV
Mock up of an Apple television

Apple's much anticipated iTV will take the stage later this year to "revolutionize the TV experience forever," said an analyst.

According to a research report published by Brian White of Topeka Capital Markets, Apple will make its entry into living rooms with a 60-inch television which could also come in the 50-55-inch range. White also said that the iTV might arrive with 'iRing' remote, which can be placed onto the viewers' finger to control the television set.

White also said that Apple will come with a 9.7-inch screen "mini iTV" which would be the same size as that of the iPad. He had arrived on these conclusions following a visit to Apple's Chinese and Taiwanese suppliers.

"Essentially, we believe the 'mini iTV' screens will be able to capture content from the 60-inch 'iTV' across a distance of up to 200 meters, allowing a user to view 'iTV' content in the kitchen, washroom, garage, bedroom, backyard, etc.," White said as quoted by Appleinsider. "We believe Apple will offer one 'mini iTV' per 'iTV,' but package options will include up to four screens (i.e., one screen is part of the standard package and pay extra for each additional."

Last week, a DigiTmes report citing a source in the industry supply chain had said that the iPhone maker is working on an Ultra HD TV with 3840x2160 pixel resolution and is likely to release the device towards the end of 2013. Rumours about Apple's television has been doing the rounds for quite some time, but the tech titan continues to remain silent on this.
