If you own Samsung's new smart TV, you can count yourself lucky.
In a statement released on Friday (May 17), Samsung Electronics Singapore announced that all Samsung 2019 smart UHD TVs selected 2018 TV models (with the latest firmware update) now have access to a new Apple App app and AirPlay 2 support.
AirPlay 2 allows Apple users to cast videos and other content from their iPhone, iPad or Mac directly on their smart TVs as long as their Apple devices run on iOS 12.3 or MacOS 10.14.5.
With the new Apple TV App application, users will be able to access all their iTunes purchases and movies on Samsung smart TVs, the company said. They can also browse through more than 100,000 iTunes movies – including titles available in 4K HDR – buy or rent.
Samsung added that smart TV users will be able to use Apple's original subscription service Apple TV + in the same application when the service launches the fall.
The Apple TV app will also be compatible with Samsung's smart TV services, such as the virtual assistant Bixby, Samsung said.
In a statement, Apple said that customers with eligible VIZIO, LG and Sony smart TVs will also be able to enjoy AirPlay 2 and HomeKit support later this year.
