At the end of last year, we announced that the Apple TV app would also be launched in LG Smart TVs after landing on the Samsung and Sony screens. A few weeks ago, the manufacturer provided more details about the novelty, saying that the Apple app would be available on TVs launched this year and on some models from 2018 and 2019.
After all this suspense, LG released the app on some of its 2019 models in more than 80 countries (including Brazil and Portugal, probably), as disclosed by the manufacturer itself. Of course, with support for the Apple TV app, these devices can now also access the Apple TV + (service of streaming of videos with original Apple content).
The TVs that won the news today are those of the generation NanoCell (SM9X and SM8X series) and all models OLED. To find out if your TV is able to install the Apple TV app, you need to check for any updates firmware available.
According to LG, the Apple app will reach some UHD models (UM7X and UM6X) by the end of the month. There is still no information on when the 2018 TVs will gain this support, but the manufacturer plans to release more details by the end of this year.
TVs that have gained support for the Apple TV app are also compatible with the AirPlay 2, allowing users to share or mirror content from iPhone, iPad or Mac directly on LG equipment.
