| The Apple TV is listed as out of stock or an upcoming product at Amazon's French and German websites, according to a German report. The sites mention that the product will become available again as of October 23rd. Since Apple is scheduled to hold a press event October 22nd, it's believed that the listings may back rumors that Apple is planning an imminent Apple TV refresh.
What a new Apple TV might gain is unclear, particularly since no leaks have emerged other than those hinting at a general upgrade. Likely changes include a switch to 802.11ac Wi-Fi and a faster processor. The unit might also gain support for HDMI 2.0, or even 4K video, although none of the videos sold on the iTunes Store are in 4K yet.
