We know that the next Apple TV will be a radical, gaming focused overhaul of Apple’s streaming set-top box, but what will it actually look like? Wednesday will tell, but if it looks and feels anything like this iOS 9 overhauled concept by Andrew Ambrosino, we’ll be pretty happy indeed.
Ironically shown running on a Samsung slim bezeled TV, Ambrosino imagines the next Apple TV as having a home screen, complete with date, time, and configurable background.
It also takes some cues from watchOS with glances, allowing you to swipe left or right on the home screen to look at updates.
The new homescreen is very much inspired by what it looks like on iOS, complete with App Store. And inspired by iPad multi-tasking, Ambrosino imagines the new Apple TV having a picture-in-picture mode.
Here’s what Ambrosino thinks Siri will look like in coordination with Proactive and Universal Search.
I’ve got to admit, I like this vision of what the new Apple TV could look like a lot. It’s familiar, powerful, and classy… things I’ve never really thought about the current Apple TV interface.
What do you think? Let us know in the comments.
