  • iOS 12.3 Update Brings New Apple TV App, Support for AirPlay 2 TV, and More

Apple says that the all-new Apple TV app is available from today for iPhone, iPad and Apple TV customers in over 100 countries, and will be available on Mac this autumn.

iOS 12.3 includes a brand-new TV app, which gives users access to Apple TV Channels.

More important to Apple's bottom line, the app also will allow users to sign up and pay for channels they do not already subscribe to without creating new passwords or downloading additional apps.

The all-new Apple TV app, which brings together all the ways to watch TV into one app, is available starting today in over 100 countries across iPhone, iPad, Apple TV and select Samsung smart TVs.

With only five months into the year, Apple has already revealed a new TV streaming service, a subscription service for mobile and desktop games, and even the second generation of AirPods.

This story has been published from a wire agency feed without modifications to the text.

Supreme Court rules antitrust lawsuit against Apple can move forward
However, the Supreme Court disagreed, saying the company's legal arguments were neither "persuasive economically or legally". Apple said that it was an agent for app developers and that it neither owned nor sold the apps itself.

The news of this update comes ahead of the next big launch with Apple TV+ expected to begin broadcasting original and exclusive content later this year. More will be added over time, including CBS All-Access and Smithsonian Channel.

Unsurprisingly, the macOS Mojave 10.14.5 update follows in iOS 12.3's footsteps with support for sharing media content from your Mac to AirPlay 2-enabled smart TVs and by letting you follow a magazine from the Apple News+ catalog browsing view.

In addition to AirPlay 2 support on Samsung TVs, iOS 12.3 also makes it so that you can AirPlay content from Siri Suggestions (though we've never seen a Siri Suggestion for movies or TV shows).

Apple iOS 12.3 update includes support for AirPlay 2-enabled TV, one-tap playback for movies and TV shows and more.

Apple's Amazon Channels arrives with a fairly full lineup of more than 150 video apps including HBO, which was rumored to be on the fence about joining the service. Netflix has said it will not be included in Apple's channels, which means programming on Netflix will appear in search results but viewers will need to exit the Apple TV app.

Samsung is the first TV manufacturer to offer the new Apple TV app on a smart TV platform.
