Next up after Apple TV online? An Apple TV set

New tech expected from Apple

Apple could be better poised to sell its own television set, according to one analyst, following a recent report that the tech giant plans to release an online TV service.

The Wall Street Journal reported Tuesday that Apple is planning to launch its online TV service this fall, citing anonymous sources.

Television content has been a major hurdle for Apple in its reported plans to sell its own television, Piper Jaffray Senior Research Analyst Gene Munster said in a report Tuesday. Munster, who has been expecting Apple to make its own TV set for some time, now says it will be announced in 2016.
