Apple is preparing to send out a second wave of developer kits for the new Apple TV. The company is notifying some developers of this new wave, which will still cost those chosen to receive a unit $1. Developers selected to receive a kit have until 5:00 p.m. local time on October 9 to order a kit.
From Apple's note to developers, obtained by 9to5Mac:
Due to overwhelming demand, we've made more Apple TV Developer Kits available and you've been selected to receive one. Simply sign in with your developer account, agree to the terms and conditions, and submit your order by 5:00 p.m. local time on October 9, 2015.
Apple originally announced the developer kit program for the Apple TV back at its iPhone event in early September. The new Apple TV will launch at some point later this month, the first major revision of the set top box since 2010. It's powered by an A8 system-on-a-chip, and features a bright new interface, support for third party apps, and a brand new remote, which has both touch capabilities and a microphone for Siri.
The new Apple TV will ship in two configurations: 32GB of storage for $149, and 64GB for $199.
