Apple has lined up a blockbuster cast for the shows on its new TV+ streaming service – and youll get to see the premiers on November 1. Plus, it looks like most of the "exclusive" titles are only timed-exclusives rather than permanently, as numerous games we've seen planned to hit the service so far have also previously been teased for other platforms, too. Apple has signed up high-profile directors, actors and celebrities to help it launch its service. We are giving you all these shows for the price of a single movie rental. You can play games across iPhone, iPad, Mac, and Apple TV.

Overall, Apple posted quarterly revenue of $53.8 billion in the June quarter, an increase of 1% from the year earlier. iPhone sales generated $26 billion in revenue, down 12% from last year's June quarter.

The California-based company on Tuesday also launched the next generation of the Apple Watch starting at $399 and comes with an "always on" display, which boasts of an 18 hour battery life.

Apple TV+ will be met with a growing number of competitors as it looks to make a presence in the over-the-top space. Well, Apple finally shared the release date and price for the service.
