Claims about Apple getting ready to produce its own television have been reported earlier as well. Last December executives at some of Apple's suppliers had said the company has been testing designs for a large-screen, high-definition set. Reports claimed Apple is working with component suppliers in Asia to test several designs for television sets. Chief Executive Officer Tim Cook said last year that television is an area of "intense interest" for Apple. Since it aims to include products that can build on the success of Macs, iPhones and iPads. At the time, he said: "We are going to keep pulling the string and see where this takes us."
Apple has already sounded out the television market with its Apple TV. This device has been sold to over 13 million customers, bringing content like Netflix, HBO GO, MLB TV and Hulu to televisions that might not already have built in apps. An Apple TV is also able to stream video from a laptop or iOS device to a television. Apple fans for sure hardly wait Job's magical television to reach the market.
