For a couple of weeks, there have been rumors circulating around the internet about Apple releasing at least one more product before the end of the year as a “holiday surprise” to its customers.
What this new release is rumored to be is a new Apple TV. Apple has not released an Apple TV since the Apple TV 4K in 2017. Since that, there has been almost radio silence about a new version of it.
@LeaksApplePro on Twitter tweeted that the “holiday surprise” for Apple customers is said to be a new Apple TV. The idea is that it would be announced tomorrow and be available to order on Friday, December 11.
According to the tweet, the new Apple TV would be available with 4K support and have 64GB and 128GB capacities. There has been no word on whether or not Apple would release one with different color options.
The tweet also suggests that customers who purchase the new Apple TV would get a free year subscription to Apple Fitness+, which is Apple’s on-demand fitness service that is said to be released before the end of the year.
4K (as I said HD is rip).
Releasing on Tuesday.
Shipping on Friday.
Just a summary of what I said 3 days ago.
(Free fitness plus is rip, however I still think it’s coming alongside it).
Thank me later.

If there were to be a release of a new Apple TV tomorrow or sometime soon, it would likely mean the end of the Apple TV HD, which was released in fall 2016.

UPDATE: Another Twitter account, @L0vetodream, who is very well known for his Apple leaks, has said there is a good chance a new Apple TV will not be happening.
