At Apple's developer conference next week we'll hear all the software goodies the company has planned in 2015, but we may not get any news about one of its most highly anticipated pieces of hardware: its new set-top box, the Apple TV.
It's been three years since we've seen a spec update to this little device, and we may have to keep waiting. This year's Apple event may be completely TV-free, including not only a delayed set-top box but also a setback on Apple's plans for its own TV streaming service, something similar to Sling TV and PlayStation Vue.
