"Apple may possibly introduce a new Apple TV OS for the current set-top-box device, we believe it would just be another UI [user interface] on top of iOS 6," wrote Jefferies & Company analyst Peter Misek in a note. "New content bundles and partnerships may be announced as well as we believe video and TV will be the major focus."
Shares of Apple gained 3.45% during the week to close at $580.32.
