Report: No new Apple TV box at iPhone 5S launch on September 10

Apple's little hockey puck will get a software bump, but no hardware upgrade

Apple is almost certain to unveil a pair of new iPhones on Tuesday, but recent speculation that the company will update its Apple TV box has been played down

Apple will not offer a new version of its popular Apple TV set-top box at its iPhone launch event on September 10, according to reports this weekend.

Despite recent speculation the little hockey puck might be in line for a revamp, the AllThingsD blog is adamant a new device is not on the cards when Apple hosts the event on Tuesday.

However, try not to be too disappointed because, according to the site's sources, there are a host of exciting new features on the way to the existing device Apple famously considered a hobby project all those years ago

One such feature is an AirPlay upgrade that would allow users to send content from their iOS devices to Apple TV boxes other than their own.

For example, users will be able to call up movies and TV shows they have purchased from the iTunes Store and beam it to a friend's Apple TV without having to log out and log in with new credentials.

Because a lot of the work will be done by Apple's servers, it won't even be necessary for the user to store the content on their own iOS devices.

Beyond the AirPlay bump, there's also going to be new apps for Apple TV owners to enjoy. US users will get iTunes Radio when that launches later this month, joining the recent influx of new content from the likes of ESPN, HBO, Sky News and Disney.

Apple is expected to announced the full details at the event on Tuesday where we'll likely see the new iPhone 5S and the heavily-tipped budged iPhone 5C make their public bow.

Here's a round up of the best rumours and speculation ahead of the event from our own Rhi Morgan. Do they tie into what you're expecting from the Cupertino-based keynote address? Let us know your thoughts below.
