Rumor; New Apple TV Demo at WWDC

Apple will host its annual WWDC in San Francisco on June 11-15.

Apple will demonstrate its new Apple TV operating system in two weeks at WWDC, according to reports.

Apple's new OS is supposed to have more features and will be part of Apple's upcoming HDTV, according to BGR. The rumor, coming from a reportedly "trusted source", also maintains that Apple is trying to court manufacturers to use a new "control out" API so third-party manufacturers can make compatible accessories. This could mean less remotes, cables and codes.

Despite this report, Apple chief executive Tim Cook was cagey in a Tuesday night interview at the D10 Conference in Rancho Palos Verdes once Walt Mossberg and Kara Swisher from AllThingsD brought up Apple's TV business. 

“This is an area of intense interest for us,” Cook said.“We are going to keep pulling the string and see where this takes us."

Cook then refused to talk about specifics, but managed to hint at possible gaming in Apple TV's future. “I think it could be interesting,” Cook told the audience.

We'll see if Cook has some surprises for everyone on June 11.
