SAN FRANCISCO: As part of a new digital TV strategy, Apple may give owners of its devices, such as the iPhone, iPad and Apple TV, free access to content owned by the company in addition to an option to subscribe to services from legacy media companies, CNBC reported.

The subscription "channels" of the product will allow customers to sign up for online-only services, such as those from HBO and Starz, said the report on Wednesday, citing unnamed people familiar with the matter.
On producing original content, the Cupertino, California-headquartered tech giant is reportedly spending about $1 billion.

Notification Tweaking, Bedtime & Measure: What’s New With Apple's iOS 12
1/7
Apple first showcased iOS 12 at their annual WWDC conference back in June 2018. Although iOS 12 has been available as a public beta for some time now, the final version has just started rolling out. A speed and battery boost on your device is a given but there are some more features you should start using straightaway.

Rather than see a long list of notifications from different apps, iOS 12 will group them together. You can still press to expand something or could dismiss all notifications from one app in a tap. More interesting are the additional ‘manage’ options. If you swipe left on a notification, you can choose for that kind of notification to be delivered quietly or turn it off completely. Of course you can still go into Settings > Notifications to precisely control what type of notification each app is allowed to present.

Instead of hunting for the tape measure when you need to check something, just pull out your iPhone. The Measure app gives you a view from the iPhone camera, lets you set waypoints and measure the distance between them. Helpfully, the waypoints also lock on to edges quite easily — works great even if you have shaky hands. The concept seems counterintuitive but you’ll be surprised at how accurate it can be as long as you follow the directions.

If you’re an iPhone user, you’re probably familiar with Do Not Disturb mode. With iOS 12, you can change a few more things here. Head to Settings > Do Not Disturb and toggle on the Scheduled switch. Then, you can set your sleep/wake time and toggle on Bedtime mode. With Bedtime enabled at night, the lock screen won’t light up with notifications, the screen is generally dimmer and the phone won’t ring or notify you either. If you place the phone by your bedside, this will stop the phone from waking you up at night with bright lights.

The idea behind shortcuts is to save time and automate things that you do on a daily basis. The concept is somewhat similar to a third-party app called IFTTT app except that it works with Siri. Once you download the dedicated Shortcuts app, you can start by creating from scratch or just head to the gallery for help/ inspiration. Once you create shortcuts, Siri can execute them too. For instance, tell Siri you’re headed to a meeting to automatically enable Do not Disturb mode. For faster access, you can add the Shortcuts widget too. You should also start seeing app developers add support for Shortcuts soon.

We all probably need a little digital detox. That’s the idea behind Screen Time, where you can see how much daily screen time you’re logging, on which apps or which category of apps. You can also set time limits for yourself. A good place to start would be social networking. All similar apps are automatically grouped and you can set a limit for yourself (the limit resets at midnight). When you hit the daily limit, the app icon is greyed out and you’ll see a small hourglass next to it/ You can also enable Downtime – a scheduled time away from the screen. Only phone calls will be allowed during Downtime. Head to Settings > Screen Time to see all of this.

When the new services roll out, they may come loaded in the pre-installed "TV" application of Apple devices.

The revamped app may be launched by Apple early next year, the report said, adding that an Apple spokesman, however, declined to comment on the plans.

According to a report in the Wall Street Journal last month, Apple has about 24 original shows in production and development.
