This week on the AppleInsider podcast, hosts Stephen Robles and Mike Wuerthele discuss the lack of an iPad app from Instagram, the productivity of the iPad for certain tasks, coronavirus affecting Apple's manufacturing schedule, the "Amazing Stories" trailer and Apple TV+ thoughts, and more.
Production on the Apple TV+ show "Shantaram" has ground to a halt due to a writing issue, with not all of the ten episodes completely written and showrunner Eric Warren Singer departing the project, resulting in a possible delay of several months.
Apple has started to promote the Steven Spielberg anthology series 'Amazing Stories' for Apple TV+, alerting potential viewers of the Steven Spielberg show's availability from March 6 via the Apple TV app, as well as publishing a trailer for the show on YouTube.
YouTube executives are reportedly contemplating the expansion of a feature that allows customers to subscribe to streaming services operated by third-parties like entertainment companies, an option Apple rolled out in 2019 with Apple TV Channels.
The recently merged ViacomCBS is reportedly working on an all-encompassing streaming service that combines assets from its impressive catalog of media companies including Comedy Central, MTV and Nickelodeon.
The latest series to launch on Apple TV+ is the service's first comedy series. It's a clever, sometimes hilarious look at life in the offices of a gaming company, and comes from the creative team behind "It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia."
