  • Samsung TV with iTunes

Samsung has said that from spring 2019 its new smart TVs will include iTunes - software made by rival tech firm Apple. The app will also be compatible with Samsung's Smart TV platform, working with Samsung's Universal Guide, Bixby and Search features. Not only will customers be able to view iTunes movies and TV shows on Samsung TVs, but the partnership also brings AirPlay 2 support to Samsung's TVs as well. Apple Music is based on the 2014 acquisition of Beats Music, which was known for being a cross-platform music service. The company has long prided itself on the tightly controlled universe of apps available on its devices.

The move represents a concession from the United States company, which had previously encouraged iTunes users to buy its £179 Apple TV box as the best way to watch material purchased from its iTunes Store.

There are, of course, exceptions; Google's Chromecast works with iOS devices, and AirPlay audio consists nearly entirely on third-party speakers. but generally, if you want Apple video, you need to be committed to the Apple ecosystem.

They spent years locked in a costly legal battle over patents after Apple claimed Samsung had copied parts of the iPhone design.

One analyst said the strategic move would benefit both companies.

Apple and Samsung are two technology stalwarts that have traditionally maintained a rivalry over the past number of years, due to their similar target markets and device strategies. Samsung used to make chips for Apple devices, and it now makes displays for iPhones. For Samsung, this brings more high definition content options for its TV users, while Apple users will be able to push their favourite content onto the big screen easier than ever.

Last week, after Apple shocked investors by saying iPhone sales missed expectations for the holiday quarter, it pointed to record services revenue of US$10.8 billion for the quarter. "The modular functionality of Micro LED will allow users in the future to create the ultimate display even at irregular 9×3, 1×7, or 5×1 screen sizes that suits their spatial, aesthetic and functional needs", Samsung says.
