Ever since Apple launched the Apple TV set top box there have been rumours of an actual TV with Apple technology inside. Now it seems the TV may be a 4K resolution set...

A report today from Digitimes says that according to "Industry Supply Chain" sources Apple are planning to launch a 4K television around the end of this year.

Apple and Foxconn, one of the major manufacturers for Apple, are rumoured to have been testing prototypes of an Apple branded TV with a 3840 x 2160 screen resolution.

Rumours of an Apple TV persist even though Apple refuse to confirm or deny them.

In Walter Isaacson's biography of Steve Jobs, he quotes Jobs: "'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"

There were also rumours earlier this year that Apple was planning to buy European TV manufacturer Loewe, sending their stock price up 45%

Athough the supply chain is often a good place to try to see what Apple are up to we'll only know for sure when they announce it.
(By the way - We predicted this first.)
