It was supposed to launch at Apple's WWDC back in June, but now comes word the new Apple TV will launch in September.

While the delay is annoying for those of looking forward to Apple's new box of tricks, it could have its benefits. Apple is reportedly using the extra time to make the device better.

According to BuzzFeed, the set-top box will now be slimmer and more powerful than previously planned. It will reportedly use the A8 chip, which is the same one inside the iPhone 6. It will also have greater storage capacity, so you can fit on more TV shows, films and music.

However, there is some bad news. Apple's TV streaming service reportedly won't launch until late this year or even early next year. We knew it was delayed due to Apple negotiating local content from broadcasters. But we didn't think it would miss Christmas.

The new set-top box is expected to have a bigger remote complete with a touchpad, which should make it easier to use than ever before. It should also have Siri onboard for voice searches, and an App Store stocked with third-party apps. Which should make it more useful than ever. Roll on September.
