    Only Apple could do it properly, at least.
    Just as it promised earlier this year, via its June WWDC event, Apple has now brought true Find My support to AirPods Pro and AirPods Max , and it changes the game completely. We might not get quite the same level of location tracking as we would by slapping an AirTag into those things, but it's fairly close.

    Via Reuters , the Dutch antitrust authority has reportedly ruled that Apple's App Store policies around the mandatory use of Apple's In-App Purchase are anticompetitive.
    Apparently, the investigation ruled that the requirement to use Apple's in-app purchase system exclusively is unfairly monopolistic. The ruling has not yet been made public apparently at Apple's request, and is undergoing legal review.

    18 days ago - By iMore

    What you need to know
    A new Apple TV+ app has been released for 2016 and 2017 LG TVs.
    The new app can be used to stream Apple TV+ content, but there are no iTunes movies or TV shows.
    You can't watch content from iTunes, though.
    Apple has a new app out, but it's only available for 2016 and 2017 TVs. Say hello to the new Apple TV+ app.
