Apple announced its Netflix-rival streaming service at the iPhone launch event in September.

The streaming platform, Apple TV+ will be available from 1 November onwards in over 100 countries, which also includes the Indian market. The company surprised many by pricing it at Rs 99 per month for users in the country.

This has generated curiosity among the Indian audience who are excited to try out premium content on Apple’s platform. It supports 4K resolution quality as well as Dolby Atmos for a better audio experience. But before people start thinking that Apple TV+ will run on all platforms, it’s worth reading about the supported devices that will get the app later this year.
