Apple Rolls Out Revamped TV App In Prelude To Streaming Service Launch

Other new features include the Apple TV app gaining the ability to find nearby devices that will support it, and a patch that fixes "an issue that could prevent Apple TV Remote from pausing video, controlling video, or changing volume on supported receivers".

Additionally, through 'Family Sharing, ' up to six family members can share subscriptions to Apple TV channels using just their Apple ID and password.

The new Apple TV app is available across iPhone, iPad, Apple TV and select Samsung smart TVs.

In a twist even more shocking than anything Game of Thrones writers David Benioff and D. B. Weiss could muster, Apple also updated the third-generation Apple TV to give it the new Apple TV app. Apple held a glitzy announcement for its TV streaming entry in March, but revealed few specifics or more than the briefest of clips of its original shows.

Samsung today announced an automatic firmware update that brings Apple's AirPlay 2 wireless streaming platform and the Apple TV app to all of its 2019 smart TVs and some 2018 models.

It was confirmed back at the Consumer Electronics Show 2019 that the latest Samsung Smart TVs will get the new Apple TV app as well as support for AirPlay 2.

Let's take a look at what else the updates provide. Apple said it plans to add more channels to the app "over time". We're not entirely sure how that will work.

The new app is available with the iOS 12.3 and tvOS 12.3 releases and will be available on Mac this fall. The update is 464.3 MB on the iPhone X or 394 MB on a 10.5-inch iPad Pro, and you can obtain it in Settings General Software Update or install it through iTunes.

With iOS 12 being all about performance and stability, how has the OS' performance improved - or declined - since iOS 12.2 release in February? And so far only three pay TV providers are supported in the Apple TV app - Charter Communications Inc's Spectrum, AT&T Inc's DirecTV Now and Sony's Playstation Vue.
