According to a tweet from ShrimpApplePro, Apple is presently testing the TV app internally and intends to release it shortly. For those who are unaware, the Dynamic Island hardware design and the phone's packaging were precisely revealed by the ShrimpApplePro.

Android smartphone users would have a more practical method to access Apple's streaming service using the Apple TV application. The programme would also provide Android users access to the MLS Season Pass next year, according to a MacRumors report.

The app is presently only available on streaming devices running the Android TV operating system in the Android ecosystem, such as the Chromecast with Google TV. The PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series S, Xbox Series X, Roku and Amazon Fire TV streaming sticks, Roku TVs, and several smart TVs from LG, Samsung, Sony, and Vizio are other non-Apple devices that support the Apple TV app. You may purchase or rent TV series and movies from the iTunes Store using the app, stream Apple TV+, and utilise it for other things.

The tech behemoth also included HDR10+ support for Apple TV+ streams and iTunes movies in an upgrade to its Apple TV software that was utilised by smart TVs and other devices in October.
