Apple Said to be in Talks With Mariah Carey to Make ‘Magical Christmas Special’ Sequel

  • Post category:Apple TV+
  • Reading time:2 mins read

Mariah Carey’s “Magical Christmas Special,” which premiered on Apple TV+ earlier this month, has proven to be so popular that Apple is reportedly discussing a 2021 follow-up with the singer.

The Sun reports that the $5.4 million holiday-themed show hit number one on Apple charts in 100+ countries, proving to be such a hit that Apple executives are dangling the possibility of an “unlimited” budget to entice her to produce a sequel for next Christmas.

“No one could have predicted its success and it went to No1 in their charts in over 100 countries,” an insider told the British paper. “Bosses at Apple now want to secure her for another special show next year. Mariah’s team are, of course, completely behind it and everyone is going to do what they can to make it happen.

“They spent over £4million on this year’s show but next year this could go even higher. Apple know the worth of Mariah and are willing to splash the cash to make a follow-up even bigger and better.”

Mariah Carey’s Magical Christmas Special debuted on Apple TV+ on the heels of the 25th anniversary of Carey’s iconic No. 1 holiday anthem “All I Want For Christmas Is You.”

The special features Carey and a star-studded lineup of surprise guest appearances, in “a magical holiday journey to enliven the Christmas spirit around the world.”

The special combines music, dancing, and animation driven by “a universally heartwarming story that brings the world together.” (No official word as yet on whether or not that goal was met.)

Mariah Carey’s Magical Christmas Special features a variety of celebrity guests, including Tiffany Haddish, Billy Eichner, Ariana Grande, Jennifer Hudson, Snoop Dogg, Jermaine Dupri, Misty Copeland, and Mykal-Michelle Harris.

Popular Apple TV+ Series ‘Ted Lasso’ May Only Run for Three Seasons

  • Post category:Apple TV+
  • Reading time:2 mins read

Sad news for “Ted Lasso” fans, as the creator of the popular Apple TV+ series has commented that the sports comedy may only run for the three seasons that Apple has committed to, no matter how popular the show is.

Bill Lawrence – who created the series along with series star Jason Sudeikis, Joe Kelly, and Brendan Hunt – said on a podcast that the show probably won’t go beyond the third season.

From ComicBook.com:

While it has not yet been widely reported, Lawrence said as much on an early December episode of Fake Doctors, Real Friends, a Scrubs rewatch podcast hosted by series stars Zach Braff and Donald Faison. During a conversation about the state of The Mandalorian, Lawrence was opining on the difficulty of making a second season to a show where everyone loved the first season. When asked whether he was concerned about that on Ted Lasso, he said it was less of an issue on a series that is designed as finite.

“I think that ours is a little different because Jason, as he’s kind of mapping it out, it’s a three-season show,” Lawrence explained. “So…super-fans know that [The Mandalorian is] connecting tissue in the Star Wars universe, and for us, everybody knows that they get an end to this story in the third season.”

“Ted Lasso is a three-season show. After the third season, I will desperately try to get Mr. Sudeikis to do a…” he continued before proposing “The only way I think a fourth season of Ted Lasso exists would be if TL went and coached a soccer team that played about a block from Jason’s house in real life, you know what I mean? He’s got young kids.”

Filming for the second season of Lasso has yet to start, but will hopefully begin in London in early January. However, the series is expected to air sometime in 2021.

The new Apple TV will feature an updated processor and redesigned remote

  • Post category:Apple TV+
  • Reading time:2 mins read

The next Apple TV may be all about gaming.

What you need to know

  • Mark Gurman says that Apple is working on a new Apple TV for release next year.
  • It is expected to feature an upgraded processor and redesigned remote.

In an opinion piece today in Bloomberg, Mark Gurman added to the litany or rumors that Apple is working on releasing a new Apple TV in 2021. In the piece, with criticized Apple for not keeping up with the likes of Google, Amazon, and Roku when it came to the streaming device market, the reporter also said that the company is planning a new Apple TV for release next year.

“For next year, Apple is planning an upgraded box with a stronger gaming focus, an updated remote and a new processor. Those changes will fix some of the Apple TV box’s issues, but the product will need to take another big leap—akin to its 2015 changes—to remain competitive in the long term. Either that or it needs to get a lot cheaper.”

Gurman’s comments match that of multiple earlier reports, one of which came from Nikkei Asia earlier this month.

“The U.S. tech giant is also working on a new Apple TV, a home entertainment device for video-on-demand services, for next year, one of the people said.”

According to multiple leakers including Jon Prosser, the next Apple TV may feature the A12X processor to enable more powerful gaming experiences. This comes as rumors swirl about Apple investing in more high-end gaming titles to bring to its Apple Arcade gaming subscription service.

The new set-top box may also come with a redesigned remote, a welcome idea to those who have maintained a long-running hatred for the current Apple TV remote.

While it is unclear what else may come with the new Apple TV, it would be a nice move by the company if the rumored changes are true. Both a new remote and upgraded processor would enable higher-end gaming experiences as well as fix one of the most controversial user experiences.

Bloomberg’s Gurman: New Apple TV to Have Updated Remote and Processor, Stronger Gaming Focus

  • Post category:Apple TV+
  • Reading time:2 mins read

Bloomberg’s Mark Gurman today briefly reiterated what he says are Apple’s plans to release a new Apple TV that will feature an improved processor and an updated remote, as well as a stronger focus on gaming.

Gurman has previously mentioned that Apple is working on a new remote that includes “Find My” type capabilities that will make it easier to find when it inevitably slides down between the cushions or end up in the dog’s mouth.

As for the stronger focus on gaming, previous rumors have stated that Apple is working on a dedicated gaming controller for the little black box that could, but so far no one has any idea what such a controller would look like.

Earlier this month, a report by Nikkei Asia Review said its sources told it that Apple is currently working on a refreshed Apple TV device for release next year.

Bloomberg mentioned a new Apple TV equipped with a faster processor, and an updated remote that offers “Find My” capabilities back in September.

An October tweet by leaker Fudge (@choco_bit) claimed that Apple is preparing more than one new Apple TV set-top boxes, with one model powered by an A12 variant and another one that boasts an “A14X-like” chip. Fudge also claimed a new controller is in the works but doesn’t make it clear whether the controller is an updated Siri Remote or a new, Apple-designed game controller.

Considering that the last time the Apple TV saw any real update love was over three years when the Apple TV 4K was released, it’s looking like a new release may be imminent. We’ll keep you posted.

Apple provides fix for Apple Watch issue with Apple Fitness+ on Apple TV

  • Post category:Apple TV+
  • Reading time:2 mins read

Having an issue working out on your Apple TV? Apple has a fix for that.

What you need to know

  • Apple has a solution for those experiencing a “Pairing Canceled” error when trying to start a Fitness+ workout on their Apple TV
  • The issue seems to be rooted in the idea that the Apple TV is not set up in the Home app.

If you want to use Apple Fitness+ on your Apple TV, it requires you to pair your Apple Watch with the television. This will let the Fitness+ app know who in the household is doing a workout and display that person’s Apple Watch metrics like their Activity Rings, heart rate, and more on the screen while they follow the workout.

Some users may have an issue when trying to use their Apple Watch with the Apple TV where they will get a “Pairing Canceled: error when starting a workout. According to a new support document, Apple is saying that this is due to your Apple TV not being added to the Home app.

In order to help resolve this error, Apple has provided the following instructions to those experiencing the problem:

  1. On your Apple TV, go to Settings > AirPlay and HomeKit. You’ll see “1” in a red badge next to AirPlay and HomeKit. Don’t see a red badge?
  2. Select Finish Home Set Up.
  3. Unlock your iPhone and hold it close to your Apple TV.
  4. Follow the steps on your Apple TV to add your Apple TV to the Home app and finish setup.

Apple says that if you already have your Apple TV set up in the Home app and are still have an issue to contact Apple Support for further help.

Apple Fitness+ launched last week with the latest updates to iOS, watchOS, iPadOS, and tvOS. Those who recently purchased an Apple Watch will receive three months of the service for free. For everyone else, it will cost $9.99 per month, $79.99 per year, or is included in the Apple One Premier bundle.

Nikkei: New Apple TV on the Way Next Year

  • Post category:Apple TV+
  • Reading time:2 mins read

We’ve heard multiple rumors of Apple’s working on a refreshed Apple TV, and a new report by Nikkei Asia Review throws another log on the rumor fire. The publication claims its sources tell it that Apple is currently working on a refreshed Apple TV device for release next year.

Nikkei’s ‌Apple TV‌ mention appears in a report about Apple’s 2021 production plans.

Apple is also preparing an aggressive production schedule for its high-end computers, including the MacBook Pro and iMac Pro, for 2021, two other people familiar with the matter said. The company is in the midst of replacing Intel central processors in its computer lineups with self-designed CPUs built using technology from British chip designer Arm. Apple already introduced three MacBook models powered by its M1 central processor in late 2020 and announced it will take about two years to fully transition to CPUs designed in-house. The U.S. tech giant is also working on a new Apple TV, a home entertainment device for video-on-demand services, for next year, one of the people said.

Back in January, we saw reports that signs of a new Apple TV were present in an iOS 13.4 beta. Rumors at the time suggested the new set-top box would boast an A12 chip and 64 and 128 GB storage options.

Since then, we’ve seen mentions of a new Apple TV in iOS 14 code, and leaker Jon Prosser has claimed a new Apple TV with an A12X Bionic chip is under development. Prosser recently suggested the new box could also include a U1 chip to allow for Ultra Wideband support to allow improved spatial awareness between devices.

Apple TV is definitely overdue for an update. Apple hasn’t updated the current Apple TV 4K since September 2017.

Speculation claims new Apple TV model set for 2021

  • Post category:Apple TV+
  • Reading time:3 mins read
AppleTVApp

Just a little more control

I did have hope of a new Apple TV for the locked down not really a holiday just total misery season, but this isn’t going to happen – until next year.

It’s not coming yet

The latest Nikkei report claims Apple is indeed developing a new version of the Apple TV for introduction next year.

It is interesting the claim comes in the context of a paragraph detailing Apple’s work with the M1 Apple Silicon chip inside Macs. Might this suggest a similarly powerful processor inside Apple TV?

“Apple is also preparing an aggressive production schedule for its high-end computers, including the MacBook Pro and iMac Pro, for 2021, two other people familiar with the matter said. The company is in the midst of replacing Intel central processors in its computer lineups with self-designed CPUs built using technology from British chip designer Arm. Apple already introduced three MacBook models powered by its M1 central processor in late 2020 and announced it will take about two years to fully transition to CPUs designed in-house. The U.S. tech giant is also working on a new Apple TV, a home entertainment device for video-on-demand services, for next year, one of the people said.”

What do I think?

We’ve heard all kinds of speculation around the Apple TV across the year. Depending on which set of claims you choose to believe, we may see:

  • A smaller, lower cost device to compete with streaming sticks
  • A more powerful device, including a ‘Pro; model.
  • Apple TV with a U1 chip.
  • Apple may plan multiple models.

It  seems logical that Apple will want to differentiate its own TV streaming product, possibly with a low-cost stick aimed at older TV sets and a high-end version capable of streaming movies in the highest available quality and with the kind of power you need for really good gaming and AR experiences.

Roku Apple TV

Roku gets TV+

One more thing

To be honest, the one more thing here is Apple One. The company has unleashed a wave of free trial subs offers across its services and all of these seem to time out on or before March.  Apple has also made its TV app (or at least AirPlay) available across a wide range of other platforms, including PlayStation 4/5, Xbox, the Roku and Amazon streaming services and TVs from Sony, Samsung and others.

With Apple expected to ramp-up its TV+ content library (as evidenced by the move to give it its own tab in the TV app), and with hundreds of millions invested in content creation, Apple will likely want to give its TV+ product a big push in order to convince free subscribers to stick with the program, so unleashing a high end set top box could form part of the matrix for such an attempt, potentially in March.

There’s a lot to play for. In the end, services incomewill shore the company up against fluctuations in hardware sales.

More rumors of a new Apple TV next year

“The U.S. tech giant is also working on a new Apple TV, a home entertainment device for video-on-demand services”

What you need to know

  • Nikkei Asia has added to speculation Apple will release a new TV next year.

A report from Nikkei Asia has reiterated that Apple will announce a new Apple TV next year.

From a report regarding iPhone shipments next year:

Apple is also preparing an aggressive production schedule for its high-end computers, including the MacBook Pro and iMac Pro, for 2021, two other people familiar with the matter said. The company is in the midst of replacing Intel central processors in its computer lineups with self-designed CPUs built using technology from British chip designer Arm. Apple already introduced three MacBook models powered by its M1 central processor in late 2020 and announced it will take about two years to fully transition to CPUs designed in-house. The U.S. tech giant is also working on a new Apple TV, a home entertainment device for video-on-demand services, for next year, one of the people said.

Whilst some had speculated that Apple might have released a new TV as its ‘winter surprise’ earlier this month, reports from a couple of prominent Apple leakers confirmed otherwise.

Both Jon Prosser and Bloomberg’s Mark Gurman, as well as Twitter leaker ‘l0vetodream’ have stated that a new Apple TV is delayed until 2021. From previous reports:

While rumors of a new Apple TV featuring the A12X processor seems to gain steam over the last few weeks, multiple reliable leakers like the mysterious L0vetodream and Bloomberg’s Mark Gurman have poured cold water on that idea today, saying that the new device is delayed until next year.

We don’t know a huge amount about the new TV, however in May Jon Prosser stated it was a 4K device with an A12X processor, 64GB, and 128GB storage options, and the codename ‘Neptune’. Further details about other new features or a design change are non-existent at this stage.

Report: Apple CEO Tim Cook Personally Put a Halt to Apple TV+ Project About Gawker Media

  • Post category:Apple TV+
  • Reading time:2 mins read

Apple CEO Tim Cook personally put the kibosh on a proposed Apple TV+ series about controversial blogging network Gawker Media.

A New York Times report on Sunday says Apple had been in the early stages of developing a series about Gawker called “Scraper.”  The series was reportedly pitched by two former Gawker staffers, Max Read and Cord Jefferson.

The Times says the show was scrapped after Cook found out about its development. Sources say Cook was “surprised” to learn of the development, and immediately emailed an Apple executive to express his “distinctly negative view” towards the project. This seems logical, as both Apple and Cook have been burned by Gawker.

Mr. Cook, according to two people briefed on the email, was surprised to learn that his company was making a show about Gawker, which had humiliated the company at various times and famously outed him, back in 2008, as gay. He expressed a distinctly negative view toward Gawker, the people said. Apple proceeded to kill the project. And now, the show is back on the market and the executive who brought it in, Layne Eskridge, has left the company. Gawker, it seems, is making trouble again.

Apple as a company has had its issues with Gawker in the past, as in 2010, Gizmodo (owned by Gawker), got its hands on an iPhone 4 prototype that had been left in a bar by an Apple employee.

Cook has in the past put a stop to controversial Apple TV+ projects. In 2018, it was reported that Cook put a stop to a Dr. Dre biopic “Vital Signs” due to the show’s scenes depicting drawn guns, sex, and drug use.

The Sunday Times report also claims that Apple’s senior VP for internet software and services, Eddy Cue has told Apple TV+ partners that “the two things we will never do are hard-core nudity and China.”

As early as 2018, company executives reportedly gave guidance to some Apple TV+ show creators to “avoid portraying China in a bad light.”

The full report is available on The New York Times website.
