Apple TV+ blesses us with highest-quality 4K streams

  • Apple’s new service streams the highest-quality 4K content yet. Better than all the rest.
  • That’s according to new tests that measure the bitrate of video streams. They reveal See has the highest bitrate so far, closely following by The Elephant Queen.
  • See’s average bitrate of 29 Mbps, which can peak to 41 Mbps, is the highest measured so far. The Elephant Queen averages around 26 Mbps, while Dickinson peaks at around 24 Mbps.

Opinion: The worst part of Apple TV+ is the TV app

  • The idea of the TV app, introduced in 2016, was to combine all the TV shows and movies from all of the apps and unify the viewing experience into a single interface, with a combined Up Next queue.

How to play relaxing, ambient sounds with your HomePod

  • How about a nice, relaxing rainstorm to help you fall asleep? Or some white noise to fill the space left by your grownup children when they left you behind to start their own lives? If you have a HomePod running iOS 13.2 or later, your smart speaker stands ready to help blank out the soul-bleeding silence of your empty life. You just need to ask.

Apple’s new AirPods Pro with noise cancellation are already here

  • Apple has unleashed AirPods Pro with an all-new design and active noise cancellation, but are they worth the premium price tag?

First damning Apple TV+ reviews indicate an alarming lack of vision [Opinion]

  • The first Apple TV+ reviews are out — and, broadly speaking, they’re not great. Critics generally slammed the marquee shows on the Apple TV+ slate. Anyone wanting to pull together a movie poster with positive pull-quotes would need to do some serious wading through bile to emerge with choice excerpts.
  • For example, The Morning Show — Apple’s pricey, A-list newsroom drama — got slammed in one review as a “painful belly flop.”
  • The Telegraph, meanwhile, slams See, Apple’s answer to Game of Thrones, as “likely to collapse under the weight of its own self-importance.” TVLinedescribes a “largely incoherent story” filled with “goofy confidence
  • Variety writer Daniel D’Addario had this to say:
    • “None of the shows, to my eye, are truly successful because each feels in its own way curated to death, overworked with an eye on transmitting quality rather than actually allowing it to spontaneously happen.

iPhone SE 2 will be Apple’s most affordable smartphone to date

  • iPhone 6 is not supported by Apple’s newest iOS 13 update. That means the iPhone 6 won’t work with services like Apple Arcade and Apple TV+. But Apple has a plan to boost upgrades.
  • The upcoming device, which is expected to look like iPhone 8 and be powered by Apple’s new A13 Bionic chip, is expected to cost less than $400 when it goes on sale in early 2020.

iOS 13.2 finally brings frame rate, resolution settings to Camera app

  • An iOS developer exploring iOS 13.2 beta 2 said the Camera app will allow video shooters to adjust frame rates and resolution without going into the Settings app.

Apple TV+ is coming to Roku

  • Apple TV+ will be available on Roku boxes when it launches next month.
    • Roku revealed this morning that the Apple TV app will be available on its platform starting today, allowing users to access their iTunes video library as well as subscribe to Apple TV channels right from their Roku devices.

Finding Apple TV+ trailers and show details just got way simpler

  • Apple just launched a website with details about all its upcoming Apple TV+ shows. The site is supposed to be for journalists, but serves as a one-stop shop for everyone to learn more about all the original programs available soon — many are scheduled for next month.
  • The site is dubbed “Apple TV+ Press,” and it includes details of 15 shows that will launch soon from this streaming video service. For the initial offerings that will debut November 1, there are also trailers and images, as well a lists of cast and crew.

AMC Theaters will launch its own service for renting and buying digital films

  • AMC Theaters, the largest movie theater chain in the US, is launching an on-demand video service, according to The New York Times. The service will let customers rent or buy movies, much in the same way Apple’s iTunes Store and Amazon’s Prime Video have operated for years.
