Apple just announced a new OS for its upcoming Apple TV+ service coming later this year. It’s called tvOS. Here are the details:
tvOS is Apple’s answer to modern streaming services like Netflix and Amazon Prime. Apple said it would let users stream the latest movies and popular television shows. Apple will also be making its own original content under the Apple Originals banner. One of the shows from the series, ‘For All Mankind’ (which gets its name from the 1989’s documentary, ‘Far All Mankind’) had its trailer premiered on stage.
The home screen on tvOS has received a major overhaul, the overall design now feels much more intuitive. Apple also announced Multi-User Support, a highly in-demand feature on streaming services. This would show users their recommended lists based on their personal interests and not on the interests of the entire family who’s using the service.
tvOS will also support Apple Music, with over 50 million songs. 4K video support has been added. Apple’s newly announced gaming service, Apple Arcade, will also be supported. The best part here is that Arcade will allow users to use their XBOX ONE or PlayStation 4 controllers.
