New Apple TVs begin shipping to online buyers

updated 04:55 pm EDT, Wed March 14, 2012

Some units could arrive early

Apple has started shipping out the updated Apple TV to people who bought it from the company's online store, according to a customer's shipping notice shared with AppleInsider. While the email states that the package should arrive on the 16th, the official launch date for the set-top, FedEx tracking data suggests it will actually arrive a day early.

Whether or not Apple will allow early Apple TV deliveries remains to be seen. Although the company can be strict in preventing some products from being delivered ahead of time, the new Apple TV is a relatively minor update, sporting 1080p video and an overhauled interface. More likely to be held back is the new iPad, also due on the 16th, although mistakes at couriers can sometimes allow individual shipments to slip through.

    Thursday delivery

    My FedEx info says a Thursday delivery for the Apple TV, a day earlier than Apple said. The iPad (new) is still slated for a Friday delivery, however.

    New interface

    Our non-new Apple TV has the new interface thanks to last week's flash. Our TV isn't capable of 1080p, so we don't care about that. But I really don't care for the new interface.
