Rumour: Apple TV SDK to Be Unveiled at WWDC Next Week

With WWDC 2012 set to kick off on Monday, expect the weekend leading up to the initial keynote to be filled with rumours and more reports about what juicy tidbits Apple will reveal to the world. BGR is now reporting we will expect to see an Apple TV SDK for developers:

We have heard from a source that Apple will be introducing a TV SDK at WWDC next week. This would enable third-party developers to create software for Apple’s TV products. BGR reported late last month that Apple has plans to demonstrate an all new TV operating system during its WWDC keynote next week.

Could we see an extension of existing apps ported over to the Apple TV? We’ve long heard about Steve Jobs and how he had ‘finally cracked’ the TV in his biography written by Walter Isaacson:

“I’d like to create an integrated television set that is completely easy to use,” he told me. “It would be seamlessly synced with all of your devices and with iCloud.” No longer would users have to fiddle with complex remotes for DVD players and cable channels. “It will have the simplest user interface you could imagine. I finally cracked it.”

Existing rumours of an impending television to be released by Apple would probably be linked to any sort of SDK release.
