Apple's historical comedy-drama "Dickinson" has brought home a Peabody Award for the Cupertino tech giant.

The Apple TV+ original was one of 10 winners in the Peabody 30's entertainment category. This year, Peabody said that there were more than 1,300 entries from the television, podcasts and radio, and web spheres.

Notably, "Dickinson" marks the first time that Apple's premium subscription streaming service has won a Peabody Award.

Apple TV+ first launched in November 2019. Although it features a smaller slate of content than its competitors, Apple spends more on each show than rivals and focuses on prestige, award-worthy shows and films.

About eight months into its run, that strategy appears to have paid off — at least for one show. "The Morning Show" earned three Golden Globe awards, three Screen Actors Guild awards, and a Critics Choice award.
