Recently, and apparently out of the blue, two ancient rivals have decided to bury the hatchet and even join forces to make the world a better place. We're talking about Apple and Samsung here, two companies otherwise known for bringing more lawsuits than regular suits when meeting up.
The iTunes app will be available for the newest Samsung Smart TVs from 2018 and '19, and they will even support AirPlay 2.
This is, of course, exciting news for flat screen owners, and many of us wonder if our own TV supports AirPlay 2.
Apple have not overslept on this occasion, and they have released a complete list of Smart TVs that support AirPlay 2, enabling easy streaming of music, pictures, and Netflix bingewatching extravaganza directly from your iPhone or iPad.
The list includes compatible models from 2018 and 2019, and you can find televisions from Sony, Vizeo, LG, besides Samsung.
Some of the 2018 models will require a firmware update, which is yet to be released.
The list of Smart TVs that support AirPlay 2 is:
