Apple launched its redesigned Apple TV app, offering users the ability to stream more than 150 video services, in over 100 countries worldwide.

Available in more than 100 markets, Apple's new app pulls many of those services together to show viewers where they can watch live or on-demand movies, TV shows, news and sports via a single search, or through personalized recommendations.

Subscribers to these services can watch and download shows and movies both online and offline plus up to six family members can share these subscriptions to Apple TV channels using just their Apple ID and password.

Along with India, US, Canada, Nepal, select African as well as Middle Eastern countries are also getting Apple's TV app.

Apple has released the latest updates to its different operating systems including for Apple TV and the Apple Watches. Apple held a glitzy announcement for its TV streaming entry in March, but revealed few specifics or more than the briefest of clips of its original shows.

Initially, the app will be available on Apple devices plus 2019 Samsung Electronics Co Ltd smart TVs and some 2018 models.

With iOS 12 being all about performance and stability, how has the OS' performance improved - or declined - since iOS 12.2 release in February? Standalone delta (2.5 GB) and combo (2.62 GB) updates are now available.
