Apple plans to launch a new Apple TV Box in the second half of 2022. This comes from Apple, a well-known Apple analyst, Ming-Chi Kuo. “Apple will launch a new version of Apple TV that improves cost structure in 2H22,” Kuo said.

The current Apple TV 4K model was released in April 2021 and is priced at $179 with 32GB storage, and $199 with 64GB of storage. Apple TV HD HD used to cost $149 with 32GB of storage. Comparatively, streaming boxes with 32GB storage are much more expensive. Under $50.
The report claims that Apple will launch a more affordable TV box. However, this is only a rumor. Apple will not make a TV Box half the price of the existing boxes. It might be less expensive than the currently available products on the market. It may not be as affordable as the $50 price tag.
