It’s been a while since we have heard any rumors about a new Apple TV, but with what 9to5Mac have discovered this may all change in the next few weeks. When looking within the iOS 5 file system 9to5Mac found the reference you can see above indicating a new AppleTV3.1 device.

A jump from 2 to 3 normally means there is going to be a major change within the device coming with the next firmware update, this may mean that Apple may be upgrading their TV streaming device internally, more than likely with an A5 processor as well as more RAM etc.

What do you think? Will there be a new Apple TV? What changes would you like to see the device?
