  1. [parsehtml]<p><img src="" /></p> <p>You can expect &ldquo;non-smart&rdquo; TVs to feel a little more inadequate starting next week: The new Apple TV (and tvOS) is coming. In preparation for this, Apple is <a href="">now accepting app and game submissions</a> from developers. They provide <a href="">guidelines so the apps and games conform</a> to important Apple TV features such as the touch-sensitive remote, and, since it is Apple we&#39;re talking about, they give picky details about how the app icon needs to look as well.</p> <p>Each submission may contain as much as 200 MB in the main bundle, and another up to 20 GB of on-demand resources. Apple reminds those working on a game or app that the tvOS products can&#39;t link against frameworks or libraries built for iOS. The company also posted an <a href="">App Programming Guide for tvOS</a> and <a href="">tvOS beta FAQs</a>.</p> <p>Developers have the option to make their app part of a universal bundle with iPhone or iPad counterparts. The Verge reports that shipments of the Apple TV are expected to <a href="">start arriving by the end of the next week</a>, so Apple didn&rsquo;t give much extra time to those getting apps ready for their TV debut.</p> <p class="grey">Image credit: <a href=";pl=edit-00">ymgerman</a> / <a href=";pl=edit-00"></a></p><p><a rel='alternate' href='' target='_blank'>Permalink to story.</a></p><p class='permalink'><a rel='alternate' href=''></a></p>[/parsehtml]
