Tim Cook (Apple CEO) did not waste any time at the firm’s this year’s iPhone event. One of the first declarations he made was that highly expected video-streaming service by Apple, Apple TV+, will roll out on November 1, 2019, for a monthly $4.99 fee. Since revealing it in March, Apple has shared a number of the shows that will be elite to Apple TV+, comprising series such as The Morning Show, For All Mankind, and Dickinson.
And while the firm has managed to get a number of A-list celebrities to join its effort into original content (such as Reese Witherspoon, Jennifer Aniston, Jason Momoa, and Steve Carell), that might not even be the firm’s best weapon as it takes on HBO, Netflix, Amazon, Hulu, and, shortly, Disney.
No, the best weapon by Apple will be its near ubiquity. For one, there are millions of iPads, iPhones, Apple TVs, and Macs already in users’ homes. And many more will be coming later this month when the latest iPhones and iPads go on sale.
Let us also remember that previously this year, the firm made its renovated Apple TV app well-matched with televisions from Samsung, and shortly it will be accessible on Roku and Amazon Fire TV along with Vizio and Sony smart TVs. This is going to make sure Apple TV+ is in as many locations as possible, whether you have an Apple hardware or not. In addition to this, Apple TV+ at launch will be up and running in over 100 nations.
On a related note, when Apple declared a new iPad base model with a smart connector and a bigger display, users were hooked. They have been fixated with purchasing a new iPad accurately due to the smart keyboard sheet, but it has been a little costly. For some, that one accessory is the highlight, turning a tablet into an unadulterated writing device, and if it was reasonably priced, all the better. Apple wishes to charge you $159 for a tablet’s keyboard worth $329.
