Apple’s upcoming TV "will reportedly feature the newest version of Bluetooth, called Bluetooth Smart (4.0)," reports International Business Times.

The story continues, "Apple previously integrated Bluetooth Smart into its new iPhone 4S, and has also added the function to the latest iterations of the MacBook Air laptops and Mac Mini computers. Leveraging Bluetooth 4.0 technology, Apple could potentially implement motion-sensitive controls and even Siri onto its TV platform.

Also, Spacelab is reporting that the "The latest Apple TV3 update is news that a new Apple TV set could come in three sizes, including a 32" and 55" size."

Business Insider says to expect "Apple’s TVs will be priced at TWICE the prevailing market price for a normal TV: $1,600, for example, for a TV of a similar size from another manufacturer that might cost $800. (If this is really the case, Apple will be able to preserve its extraordinary profit margins). The magic of Apple’s TV, Gene says, will be seamless integration with your other Apple devices and service. The TV will come with a standard remote, but you’ll also be able to control it with your iPhone or iPad or via Siri. You’ll also be able to download console and other games, content, etc., from iTunes, the App Store, and iCloud."

Apple TVs are expected to hit stores in time for the 2012 Christmas season.
