Apple has refreshed the operating systems of iPhones and Apple Watches with the release of updated iOS 12.4 and WatchOS 5.3 versions.
Introduced on Monday, the update for its mobile OS introduces “iPhone migration to directly transfer data from an old iPhone to a new iPhone” during setup along with enhancements in device security and Apple News Plus, CNET reported.
Apple News Plus would allow downloaded issues in the “My Magazine” option available on and offline, according to Apple’s support page.
All the publications part of Apple’s news services would be available at the top of the News Plus feed.
In a bid to give over-the-top streaming services from Netflix, HBO, Amazon and Hulu a run for their money, Apple has committed $6 billion to its original TV shows and movies budget for its upcoming Apple TV+ service, according to a new report from the Financial Times.
This is a huge jump in Apple’s budget for original shows as the company earlier set aside $1 billion for bringing renowned creators and actors to its platform, The Verge reported on Monday.
One comedy-drama called “The Morning Show”, featuring Jennifer Aniston, Reese Witherspoon, and Steve Carrell, has cost Apple hundreds of millions of dollars, said the report quoting the FT.
Apple announced its TV+ service at an event in March. The on-demand subscription service will come with brand new programming from the world’s celebrated artists including Oprah Winfrey, Steven Spielberg, Apple said.
While the company announced that the service will start rolling out from autumn this year, it did not disclose any exact release date or price for the service.
