Amazon-Apple TV deal shows tough road to cooperation for tech rivals

We listened. Amazon Prime Video is coming to the TV App and all Apple TVs this year.

This means that later this year Amazon Prime Video will be available on Apple TV with its thousands of movies and TV shows.

Interestingly, that was the only announcement Cook made about Apple TV, so while there wasn't a lot to cover when it comes to tvOS, the head people at Apple clearly thought this was big enough news to stand on its own.

"Today we're really thrilled to announce that Amazon is coming to the TV app and all Apple TVs later this year with Amazon Prime Video". Amazon's app, part of its recent move to offer original and licensed TV programming, has never been available on the Apple TV, though the device does offer the ability to download many other TV apps including HBO and Netflix. Although both companies have yet to give an update on the issue, things are likely to change now that Amazon and Apple have come to an agreement.

Apple on Monday announced iOS 11, bringing new experiences and loads of new features to iPhone and iPad this fall.

The money can be stored on a virtual card and used with Apple Pay, which Apple expects will be accepted in 50 percent of USA retailers by the end of the year.

APPLE has revealed a host of new products at WWDC 2017 and here's everything you need to know. The Apple App Store is also getting a makeover, with a designated tab just for games.

Safari on High Sierra will block autoplay ads and keep ads from "following" a user around the web.

The iMac Pro is a matte gray 27-inch computer that Apple says is the most powerful Mac it's ever made.

Obviously, tvOS 11 will be a more minor refresh than Apple's other operating systems, as it didn't deserve a spot on the main keynote. Live Photos - the moving pictures Apple introduced back in 2015 - are getting a few new editing options, including a looping one that seems highly reminiscent of our dearly departed Vine.

Amazon declined to comment on whether it will again sell Apple TVs.
