A “Christmas surprise from Apple” – is this it?

A “Christmas surprise from Apple” – is this it?

This week Apple started sending a sort of holiday gift to users of Apple TV+ this week. The gift appears to align with the 3-extra-months of Apple TV+ situation going on with users that purchased Apple hardware in the relatively recent past. In October it was revealed that Apple would extend the 12-months-free Apple TV+ access they'd given to hardware customers. Now Apple's delivering $4.99 credit in November, December, and January to people that have a subscription to Apple TV+ (that pay an amount of money for said subscription each month.)

PS5 media streaming – Every app on launch day

In the age of internet-connected gaming, consoles have essentially become multimedia boxes instead of dedicated game consoles. While launch games are obviously among the most important aspects of a new console launch, it's also important to know which media apps that console will support on day one.

Sony brings Apple TV app to Android TV on select smart TVs

How much TV can you handle? If you ask Sony, the answer might be "as many as it can cram into a single device." Of the major Android phone makers, Sony is perhaps the only one outside of Chinese brands that actually produces smart TVs running Android's TV incarnation. That makes it almost odd, then, to hear that it is bringing Apple TV to some of these, but that might all for be the best as it could indicate a rollout of Apple's video streaming app to Android TV in general.

Apple TV 4K finally gets YouTube 4K with some caveats

Apple TV 4K finally gets YouTube 4K with some caveats

The entertainment industry is seemingly pushing 4K content and supporting hardware to consumers' consciousness but it doesn't seem like a concerted effort either. 4K-capable hardware sometimes has no access to 4K content or 4K content is blocked by additional hardware requirements beyond 4K processing. The situation is particularly messy on Apple's platform when it comes to YouTube's 4K streaming but at least one of those pain points has finally disappeared but with a catch or two.

Apple One finally bundles all of Apple’s subscriptions together

It's no secret that Apple has a fondness for subscription services, as over the past several years it's rolled out subscriptions for music, news, games, and now even fitness. If you're waist deep in the Apple ecosystem, then you know there are a ton of services to potentially subscribe to, and most of us figured it was only a matter of time before Apple decided to bundle them together. It turns out the company is doing just that with a new service called Apple One.
