The deal also includes support for AirPlay, which means iPhone users will be able to stream video content from their phones to Samsung TVs. "A 75" 4K micro LED TV was announced during the Samsung preview event, along with an intriguing modular micro LED display that can be customised and expanded simply by adding more micro LED modules.

Samsung just made an announcement that will rock Apple fans world, with iTunes content and Airplay 2 capability coming to Samsung smart TVs in 2019. The Korean giant will have AirPlay support on its smart TVs, frame and serif lifestyle TVs, and other UHD and HD models. Keep in mind that's only one company out of several that need to play nice with Apple to expand the customer base for their subscription service, but that's a huge deal that no one ever thought would happen.

The adoption of the iTunes library of movies and TV shows gives Samsung TV users a new content delivery source, but most importantly, it gives Apple unprecedented access to a userbase of potential new customers for its service. Since it launched, SmartCast has developed into a functional connected TV platform in its own right, with both Google Cast as a backbone and a modest selection of apps and streaming services on top of it. This will allow users to control media on the TV while controlling things like the volume, powering the set on or off and more.

Apart from AirPlay 2 support, Apple is also bringing HomeKit support to television sets. The company blamed the revenue reduction on lower-than-expected hardware sales but pointed to service revenue records.

The app will appear in a carousel along with other services including Netflix, YouTube, and Amazon Prime Video.

Apple previously brought Apple Music to the Amazon Echo speakers.
