SAN JOSE-Apple announced tvOS updates on the WWDC stage, though the company didn't confirm whether these features amount to a whole new version number. Tim Cook mentioned that there are 50 percent more users now than there were previous year, and no doubt they'll be happy with the addition of Dolby Atmos audio and some nice sign-on streamlining. Now if you hate the Apple TV Siri remote, you will be able to pick from select 3 party remotes that will natively work with your Apple TV.Apple did announce that the Apple TV app now has more than 100 video channels.The tvOS 12 update will also bring what Apple is calling "zero sign-on", which, more or less delivering what it says on the tin, means users won't have to type in their passwords. The company also allows Apple TV users the ability to convert previously purchased TV shows and movies to 4K as a free upgrade. Some apps like this still require at least one cable box on your home network.Apple TV introduced its 4K model a year ago, and … [Read more...] about TvOS 12 Brings Dolby Atmos Cinematic Audio to Apple TV 4K
TODD SMITH Apple has further expanded its TV application on iOS and tvOS. Following the addition of a dedicated Sports section a few months ago, users can now use the TV app to access live streaming news content from numerous sources. While not as extensive as the Sports section, the News section in the TV app allows users to instantly access live streaming news content from several different networks. You get direct access to CBS News, CNN, Fox News, CNBC, and Bloomberg. If you don’t have the dedicated application for one of those networks installed, tvOS or iOS will prompt you to install it directly from the App Store. The TV app uses your single sign-on login credentials to connect you into each of those apps, making it seamless to set up multiple different news sources. Furthermore, on tvOS, you can use Siri to start playing a specific network. For instance, simply say “Play CNN” to immediately jump to the live feed in the CNN application. Apple originally … [Read more...] about TODD SMITH: Apple TV app adds live news streaming
Last Updated Oct 1, 2010 6:08 PM EDT The Web is abuzz with the news that the new Apple (AAPL) TV is actually an iOS device that could run apps just like the iPad, iPhone and iPod touch. But that doesn't mean it will run apps -- the math just doesn't add up. According to tear-downs, the Apple TV only has an 8GB solid-state drive to store media. That's not very big at all. Now, reserve about 3GB on the device free for downloads, assuming the device should keep enough space free for one full movie. Then reserve another 0.5GB for system files (that's what my iPad shows). That leaves only 4.5GB for video content. That's only 2 movies and 7 shows -- not much at all. But I guess that's acceptable, since the Apple TV is pulling most of its content from your home computer or iPhone via AirPlay, the new software that lets your phones and computers share content with the Apple TV on the big screen. Looking at my iPad, I see a total of about 1.5GB of apps -- and I have exactly zero games. If … [Read more...] about Apple TV Can’t Possibly Run Apps, No Matter What Wired Says
Apple made a series of major announcements about its digital music players and iTunes music store Wednesday. At a media briefing in San Francisco on Wednesday, CEO Steve Jobs said that Apple had entirely revamped its iPod line and made improvements both to its music store as well as the iOS operating system powering its mobile devices. As expected, Apple also announced 99-cent rentals of TV shows through iTunes. The shows will be available from News Corp.'s Fox and Walt Disney's ABC starting today. Not all studios wanted to do this, he said. "We think the rest will see the light and get on board with us," Jobs noted. Users also will be able to stream Netflix to the device if they are already customers. Jobs acknowledged that Apple TV, which came out four years ago, has "never been a huge hit." He said a new version of the device would be a quarter of the size of the older unit with a built-in power supply , an HDMI connector and Ethernet as well as Wi-Fi.

Roughly a year ago, Apple (NASDAQ: AAPL) CEO Tim Cook announced an ambitious goal of doubling the company's services revenue within four years. The App Store will have to play a major role in this growth story, as the largest piece of Apple's services segment. So far, so good. Services revenue reached $30 billion in fiscal 2017, up 23% year over year. Even excluding a favorable one-time revenue adjustment of $640 million, Apple would have posted a 21% increase in services revenue. Robust App Store sales growth was one of the key drivers of this strong result.
