Crossbow cockers have been enjoying the latest iteration of Apple’s latest smartphone, the Apple Crossbow, since early March.
But while the device is still a work in progress, it has been officially announced.
The new Apple Crossbar, as it’s called, was announced today by Apple CEO Tim Cook during a keynote address at the annual Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC).
Apple CEO Tim Burns introduced the device, saying it’s a “great new product” that was designed to “help bring you new experiences and experiences that will be more fun and engaging for you and your family”.
The device will work with the new Apple Watch, allowing users to “try new things with the same kind of joy and excitement you experienced with the Apple Watch.”
It’s also a bit of a departure from the Apple TV, which is a full-blown streaming box.
Apple TV has been around for a while now, but it’s currently limited to just the latest Apple TV apps.
The Apple Cross Bar is a new way for Apple to give its streaming service more control over its content.
Cook described the new device as “a little bit of an upgrade” to the AppleTV, saying that it will “give you the best of both worlds: a remote, with the ability to watch your favorite shows and movies, and a big screen to enjoy your favorite movies and TV shows.”
It was previously rumored that Apple would launch a standalone device for its streaming box, but the new announcement means the device will be able to work with Apple TV as well as the Apple HomeKit platform, which allows home automation devices like smart lighting, thermostats, and more to connect with each other.
The device will also be compatible with all of Apple TV’s existing apps, including iMessage, Messages, AirPlay, GarageBand, and much more.
Apple has been releasing a slew of new streaming devices since it unveiled the Apple TVs at WWDC last year.
The company is currently working on a new version of its AirPlay app that will allow users to use AirPlay-enabled apps for streaming.
