According to 9to5mac the new Apple TV will remain at the same price point but offer some pretty enticing new features. Apple TV 3 is expected to have a Bluetooth 4.0 Broadcom Chip and better processing power for some snazzy 1080p HD output action! One big rumor floating around is that the new Apple TV 3 will include an App Store and have some powerful gaming capabilities.
Another item on the plate is that Apple’s expected to replace their current AppleCare for iPad’s with a new and improved AppleCare + for iPad. While we’re not sure exactly what this new protection plan supposed to be priced at $99 will include, MacRumors brings an aspect of confirmation to the scenario.
Apple appears to be making a similar transition for the iPad with tomorrow’s introduction of the iPad 3, rolling out a $99 AppleCare+ for iPad warranty that would replace the current $79 standard AppleCare package.
AppleCare + is rumored to include Accidental Damage coverage with a $49 deductible. This is a great addition in my opinion as the iPad has become a mainstream tool for people of all ages. Accidental coverage is a MUST!
One other “less than noteworthy” item that has populated speculation and recent rumors is a mystery accessory part labeled as nothing but “B82”. This mystery part is set at a price of $39 and seems to have relation with Apple TV 3, though we’re not 100% sure.
While we all have our own predictions, we will find out everything tomorrow during the iPad Media Event set to happen at 10AM PST.
