Apple movie rentals now give you double the time to watch

Apple movie rentals now give you double the time to watch

Apple, while launching its Apple TV 4K earlier this month along with the new iPhone handsets, did not say anything if the streaming device will come with Dolby Atmos surround sound tech out of the box or not.

Is this the year the Apple TV finally becomes a no-compromise set-top box?

Apple has made it clear in the latest support document that Apple TV users will not be able to download 4k content.

Most people still don't have 4K TVs, so the new Apple TV model doesn't offer them much.

Ryanair cancellations: 315000 customers notified and over half on new flights
Ryanair said it is cancelling 40 to 50 flights a day for six weeks after "messing up" its planning of pilot holidays. The customers have now been contacted with offers of alternative flights or refunds, says the budget carrier.

It used to be that when you rented a movie from Apple's iTunes service, you'd have 24 hours to finish watching it. If you have an iPhone or iPad, this is even more true, since the setup is so easy.

Netflix has now added HDR support for Apple's iPhone X and iPad Pro.

The aptly named Apple 4K TV is available to purchase in-store and online, wherever Apple products are sold. Apple has ungraded iTunes to automatically provide you 4K for any of your previously purchased in HD. Aside from being able to watch shows, such as American Gods and Man in the High Castle, on your swanky new phone, Amazon Prime Video has the optional, Kindle-inspired "x-ray" feature that will tell you which actors are in the scene you're now watching - including blink-and you'll-miss-'em bit players - and even point out continuity gaffes and the like. "An "Apple person" with a nice TV and a yen for improved image quality". You can use Siri, by the way, to find 4K content for you on Apple TV. Picture quality is the same for both versions on regular HD sets like mine. Given that rival devices are cheaper, what you're buying isn't the device, but an experience - integration and syncing with all your other Apple gadgets. As before, the deadline starts when you actually begin playback, and you can still keep access to a rented movie for up to thirty days as long as you avoid actually starting to watch it.
