While the diagram pictured above doesn’t suggest any major changes to the device’s appearance, it does list some slightly smaller measurements: 93.78mm square compared to the 98mm of the current model. That’s certainly not the biggest of differences, but the measurements in previous Apple FCC filing have been spot on. The model number, A1469, is also one that we haven’t seen before, but the documents unfortunately don’t offer much else in the way of details (only confirmation of the same WiFi capabilities as the current-gen Apple TV).
In the middle of this month, KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo — who has been accurate in the past — posted his expectations for Apple’s various product launches this year. He expected a new Apple TV model late in the first calendar quarter, which lines up with the filing.

I would actually be stoked by a “modular” AppleTV. That way I could upgrade the puck with new abilities, without having to throw away some huge, expensive display. Alas, it is probably too good to be true.
So here we have it, the stackable system; Mac Mini, Airport Express, External Storage, and AppleTV:
For those who were wondering, that’s a 4.22mm drop in length from both sides, and ~855mm^2 drop in footprint.
no it’s not.
