An FCC filing reveals that Apple is about to release a slightly smaller version of the Apple TV, reports Engadget.

We don't generally find surprises from Apple in the daily stream of FCC documents and test reports, but a new filing published today seems to suggest that a new Apple TV model of some sort could be on the way. 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).

It's likely that this new slightly smaller version of the Apple TV is the AppleTV3,2 that we reported on yesterday. Apple posted new iOS 5.2 firmware for the previously unseen device alongside firmware updates for the rest of its devices yesterday.

I love my jailbroken apple tv 2. Some many movies out there, plus ones at theaters. Not paying 10 bucks for a movie ticket is nice.
