Last Year, Apple said that the company will reveal its long-awaited TV service in the first half of 2019. Recently, Apple CEO Tim Cook said in an exclusive interview at CNBC Mad Money show that the company will announce new “services” this year. Cook had not specified which kind of services it will be.
On services, you will see us announce new services this year. There will more things coming. I don’t wanna tell you about what they are and I’m not gonna forecast precisely, the ramps and so forth. But they’re things that we feel really great about, that we’ve been working on for multiple years, said Tim Cook.
According to some speculations, Apple has a news subscription service which is launching soon. Also, Apple is working to develop original video content that is also expected to launch in 2019. Apple CEO Tim Cook also talked about the company’s growing interest in Healthcare initiative.
On healthcare in particular and your wellbeing, this is an area that I believe, if you zoom out into the future, and you look back, and you ask the question, “What was Apple’s greatest contribution to mankind,” it will be about health, said CEO. Because our business has always been about enriching people’s lives. And as we’ve gotten into healthcare more and more through the Watch and through other things that we’ve created with ResearchKit and CareKit and putting your medical records on the iPhone, this is a huge deal.
Here at CES 2019, Apple comes up with a package of announcements from TV manufacturers who are suddenly supporting Apple’s AirPlay 2 and HomeKit features which allow you to cast content directly from your iPhone, iPad, and Mac, including TVs current rival operating systems from Google and Samsung. Tim Cook also enlightens us about the reports of iPhone XR which is not selling as per expectations.
