Will Apple Crack Open Its TV for Developers?
Though not quite the conclusive evidence of iOS 6 made public last week, a “trusted source” told BGR on Friday that Apple (NASDAQ:AAPL) plans to reveal a TV SDK at its annual Worldwide Developers Conference, which begins today in San Francisco.

The report suggests the SDK would allow third-party developers to build Apple TV-compatible software. BGR claimed last month that Apple was testing a new “control out” API and would demonstrate a refreshed version of the Apple TV operating system at WWDC running on the much-rumored Apple HDTV.
While there has been little evidence giving credence to rumors of an HDTV, an updated Apple TV doesn’t seem out of the question. Apple’s annual conference still has many “To Be Announced” sessions listed, which Daring Fireball’s John Gruber believes will relate to new apps for Apple TV.
Still, no other Apple followers have been able to confirm BGR’s report, and the word of one website’s “trusted source” isn’t enough to begin placing bets. Fortunately, WWDC is just hours away, and soon all the guessing games and rumors will give way to what will hopefully be an impressive array of new and redesigned products from Apple.
Apple will begin WWDC with a keynote presentation at 10 a.m. PDT (that’s 1 p.m. EDT) today, June 11. Stay tuned to Wall St. Cheat Sheet for all the breaking news from the conference.
