Apple TV App Revamped Ahead of Company's Streaming Service Launch

iOS 12.3 is out now with overhauled TV app

All-new Apple TV app available in over 100 countries starting today

The new Apple TV app is available across iPhone, iPad, Apple TV and select Samsung smart TVs. With this new Apple TV Channels interface, users will be able to directly add their paid streaming services directly into the Apple-design UI, including fan favorites like Showtime and Starz. (Updates for TVs from LG, Vizio and Sony are coming later this year.) In addition to the new Apple TV app, those smart TVs also are gaining the ability to use Apple's HomeKit smart home standard, as well as AirPlay 2.

As the photo below shows, content is organized around five main headings: WatchNow, Movies, TV Shows, Sports, Kids, and Library.

Apple has released iOS 12.3, its latest update for iPhones and iPads, and this update is definitely focused on the company's plans for TV content.

The app is available in over 100 countries, all you need is a device with iOS 12.3 or tvOS 12.3 installed. If these integrations truly are missing from the TV app on third-party devices, that's a key difference worth considering.

The new Apple TV app will be available on all 2019 Samsung Smart TVs and select 2018 models. The update which is about 506MB in size is available now on your iPhone and iPad devices. Also, the Apple TV app features a new, dedicated "Kids" section, curated to showcase shows and movies for children of all ages.

Apple's sales from its services business, which also includes sales from iCloud, the App Store and other businesses, reached $11.45 billion in its most recent fiscal quarter, compared with analyst estimates of $11.32 billion, according to FactSet data.

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. The update also brings the new redesigned Apple TV app along with other security bug fixes.

Although full details remain scarce we do know some of the names that will be producing and staring in its content.
