Today's Apple event might be about new Macs, but the company is taking time to detail updates for its other products too. First up: Apple TV. On stage today, CEO Tim Cook said that the box now offers access to over 8,000 apps, and will soon become home to one of the most popular games on both consoles and mobile: Minecraft. That's right, Microsoft's huge open-world sandbox game will be available on Apple TV "by the end of the year."

Apple has provided no additional details about what is in store but you'll likely want to invest in a third-party controller to get the most from the title. Sure, Apple's new wireless remote sports a touchpad and hosts more buttons than the minimalist silver remote that shipped with the company's older streamers but we imagine it won't be the best tool to help you (or the little ones) build that all-important End Portal. We've contacted Microsoft and Mojang for more details and will bring you more information as we get it.
