A new patent shows that the Apple TV is set to come to market with a streaming antenna and an iOS device that can control it.
The patent application for a new wireless device has been filed by Apple in the US.
“This wireless antenna is capable of being mounted on a wireless device that is attached to the wireless antenna, such as a television,” the patent says.
