What’s new for Apple TV, November 1st, 2018
Whether you’re a fan of fishing, dancing, the fine arts of Belgium or finding tiny folks in hidden locations, there’s a new or updated app waiting for you this week.
And remember when Apple used Crossy Road as a fine example of Apple TV gaming? It’s been updated to tie into a game that’s not available for Apple TV. Draw your own conclusions.
Prices provided below are accurate at press time. Free downloads are for the app only and may require a subscription or in-app purchases for full functionality.
