Apple TV could be about to get its first refresh in over three years. And it'll be a major overhaul, according to one report.

The new model will land in June, to be showed off at Apple's Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC). Sources tell BuzzFeed News that it will rock third-party apps and Apple's digital assistant Siri.

It will also have a new design, and under the hood will be a variant of Apple's A8 system-on-a-chip (the very same as in the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus). It should also have more storage. The current model of Apple TV only packs 8GB.

It should support Apple's TV streaming service that's been rumoured recently. This is said to work across all iOS devices, and to include 25 big-name channels. One report claimed it will pass highly valuable customer data like viewing habits on to the networks, so they can sell targeted adverts.

Apple is said to have been working on a TV streaming service for years. Recently, it partnered with HBO to launch its streaming service exclusively on Apple TV.

Apple is previously said to have been working on a TV set. A few years ago, it described Apple TV as a "hobby".
