– Good morning! And welcome to the Steve Jobs Theater. As you can tell, today’s gonna be a very different kind of event. So let’s get started with Apple News. (audience applauding) I love the feeling of
being at the newsstand with all those beautiful and
thought-provoking magazines covering so many topics. Well today, we’re bringing
magazines to Apple News. All of these magazines come
to life in an all-new service that we call Apple News Plus.
(audience applauding) – Apple News Plus will
bring you over 300 magazines across all sorts of topics, and Apple News Plus is the only place where you will find all these
magazines in a single package. But Apple News Plus is
about more than magazines. Apple News Plus also includes
some of the most popular premium digital
subscriptions like the Skimm. We download groups of
articles from our servers, and then we use on-device intelligence to make recommendations, and that means we don’t
know what you read, and in addition to that, we don’t allow advertisers to track you. (audience applauding) We decided to make this
available to your entire family with Family Sharing at no extra charge. You pay $9.99 per month.
(audience applauding) Apple News Plus is available today. Just download today’s
updates of iOS and MacOS and launch Apple News, and the first month is free.
(audience applauding) – Now let’s talk about Apple Pay. We’re bringing Apple Pay to transit in major cities in the
U.S. starting right here on the west coast with
Portland and rolling out in Chicago and New York
City later this year. (audience applauding) Today, we’re introducing
a brand new service, and we call it Apple Card.
(audience applauding) – You don’t have to wait
days to get your card. Just sign up on your
iPhone, and in just minutes, you get your Apple Card, and you can start using it right away. You can use it world wide
anywhere with Apple Pay, in apps, in stores, on the web, and your Apple Card will be available across all of your Apple devices. Apple Card is also always with you because it’s in your
iPhone in the Wallet app, and the Wallet app has
completely new capabilities. So you can see everything you need to know about your Apple Card. With Apple Card, if you have a question, just text us right from Messages. Everything from getting
details on a transaction to letting us know your new address. With Apple Card, we use
machine learning and Apple Maps to transform this mess
into names and locations that you’ll recognize. Apple Card also automatically organizes and totals your purchases, and you can keep track of
your spending by categories like food and drink, shopping,
entertainment, and more. And Apple Card also shows you
how your spending is trending week-over-week or month-over-month. So every time you spend with Apple Card, you get cash back, and
you get it every day. In fact, every time you pay
with your iPhone or Apple Watch, you’ll get 2% of the purchase
amount in daily cash. And for purchases made
directly from Apple, you get 3% daily cash.
(audience applauding) – Apple Arcade is the world’s first game subscription service for mobile, desktop, and living room. With a single subscription, you’ll get access to over
100 new and exclusive games. You’ll be able to play Apple Arcade games across iPhone, iPad, Mac, and Apple TV and pick up where you left off in a game even if you switch devices. And unlike streaming services, every game will be playable offline. There will be no ads and no
additional purchases needed, and parents can manage their kids’ access with our screen time features. Apple Arcade games cannot
collect any data about you nor track any information
about how you play their games without your consent.
(audience applauding) Apple Arcade will be available this fall in over 150 countries and
regions around the world. Pricing and more details to come. – Only the channels you want on demand, ad-free, for the entire family, and all of it is inside

Video, Hulu, or ESPN Plus. Movies from iTunes. Sports, news, and network
TV from cable or satellite, or shows from HBO, Showtime, and Starz with the new Apple TV Channels. It’s all together in one
place, the Apple TV app. You’ll be able to get this new experience including Apply TV Channels
on all these devices through a software update this May. We’re bringing the
Apple TV app to the Mac. We’re launching the same great experience with Samsung this spring followed by Sony, LG, and Vizio. We’re bringing the Apple
TV app to smart TV’s, and we’re even bringing the Apple TV app to Roku and Amazon. – But we have even more to
