Amazon Prime Video to come to Apple devices

Share

Today was the first day of Apple's WWDC 2017 event, and the company announced new iterations of iOS, macOS, and watchOS.

Currently, watching Prime Video on an Apple TV requires you to sling it from the Prime Video app on an iPhone or iPad via AirPlay, a clunky-at-best solution that doesn't always work well and (from my own personal experience) reduces video quality relative to a direct stream.

Seems easy enough, though it's unclear if Apple will charge a fee for this new service.

The workout app is also getting an update, with features that allow users to automatically measure more about their workouts, and track multiple workouts in a single session. And Apple has refined music playback using the Watch, including support for multiple playlists.

Apple will roll out the free update sometime this fall.

Apple is releasing a new iPad Pro with brighter retina displays.

CEO Tim Cook said Amazon Prime Video, which includes original series like "Man in the High Castle", would be added to Apple TV.

Apple also announced a new iMac Pro, which will cost $4,999 and will be available in December.

Mr Timothy said: "I take responsibility for my part in this election campaign, which was the oversight of our policy programme". Previously, she said she wanted to take Britain out of the EU's single market and customs union in order to cut immigration.

Apple really wants to hold on to its professional users.

Apple's entry into the market could change this.

Apple Pay is making a play in the peer-to-peer payments space. If you've been Googling flights to Reykjavik, it might suggest an article about Iceland. If they reply "urgent" to that message, that message will be marked as such and go through. It also sports a new A10X processor that should improve gaming and overall app performance.

Considering Apple and Amazon have competed with each other in the past, this is exciting news and mends the previous issues between companies. Like Facebook, Apple's demo started with a fake cup of coffee on an actual table.

The new control center in iOS 11. The Smart Keyboard accessory for the 10.5-inch is also full size, making it more comfortable to type on with large hands. Users will be able to order the tablets Monday; they ship next week.

In iOS 11, iPads will have new familiar features - they're taken directly from the Mac.

Confirming an earlier report, Apple kicked off its Worldwide Developer Conference this morning with an announcement that Amazon's Prime Video would now arrive on the Apple TV. The Homepod was just one of many things unveiled Monday.
