Apple's new tvOS 13 gets PlayStation and Xbox controller support, multiuser sign-ins


Just minutes ago at the WWDC 2019 conference, Apple finally made a very anticipated feature available for tvOS 13 by introducing multi-user support. Thus, every different user will get a tailored "up next" list for their own preferences and their own preferences only. Apple introduces a new Control Center in tvOS 13, repurposed for the task. 

Since with tvOS you can also get access to the millions of tunes in Apple Music, it will also be personalized by user, and Apple throws in lyrics syncing overlay to the tunes. In another beatifying effort the new screensavers for  Apple TV are HDR-certified and include underwater imagery created in cooperation with BBC's Natural History. 

Furthermore, and as another "high time!" moment, Apple is extending support to Xbox One and Playstation DualShock 4 game controllers to tvOS, which will cover the ones that the upcoming Apple Arcade gaming service will include in its roster. Sweet! 

Last but not least, Apple shared the trailer of one of its "original" TV series, "For all manking," from the creators of Star Trek, and it looks rather promising, as you can see above.

Dang, I wish AppStore had more than one game, and you know what would be cool if it had games like pubg, fortnight, real racing 3, asphalt series - and so on. Man that would been cool if that was true, this way controller would be useful too. Oh wait...

Butthurt that Samsung is way behind to copy all appleā€™s lineup. From iphone to ipad to mac to apple tv to homepod to apple watch and to profit.
