Apple Arcade is a game subscription service for iOS, Mac and Apple TV

As with Apple News+, Apple Arcade works with family sharing -- so you can buy once and share the service with your family. Once signed up, there are no ads and no additional purchases needed in any of these games. And to keep kids from playing too much, parental controls will be available inside the Screen Time tool in settings. And if you're a frequent traveler, all these games will be available offline as well.

Apple says that it's not only curating the games it offers in the Arcade, it's also contributing to development costs and "working closely with creators" to bring these games forward. As for the studios involved, Apple cited Annapurna Interactive, Bossa Studios, Cartoon Network, Finji, Giant Squid, Klei Entertainment, Konami, LEGO, Mistwalker Corporation, SEGA, Snowman and ustwo as its first development partners.

When Apple Arcade is ready, it'll launch in more than 150 markets, but it won't be out until this fall. At this point, there aren't any pricing details, either -- we'll, unfortunately, have to wait a while to try this out.

Apple TV Channels is an a la carte way to watch your favorite networks

For the most part, Apple TV Channels seems more about organizing your streaming media, instead of giving you something truly new. Apple is pitching it as an alternative to services like Sling TV and PlayStation Vue, which offer cable TV channels in bundles. By offering an a la carte alternative, it could save some viewers money. Of course, the participating networks also have their own Apple TV apps, but jumping between isn't exactly seamless, something that Channels would also solve.

Apple is also clearly targeting Amazon's Prime Video Channels, which another way to subscribe to premium networks. It's also bringing the "TV" app to Macs and smart TV brands, so you'll be able to watch Apple Channels on devices beyond your iPhone and iPad. Back at CES, we were surprised to see AirPlay headed to several major smart TV makers, as well as iTunes on Samsung TVs, so it's not a huge surprise to see Apple expanding its reach even further.

Apple isn't offering any pricing details yet for Channels, but rumors point to $10 for premium networks. HBO Go, in comparison, costs $15 a month normally. It'll be interesting to see how Apple prices smaller services like Shudder, which is $5 a month typically. It's unclear at this point if your existing app subscriptions will transition to Channels, but given that Apple's focus is on simplifying your media consumption, we hope they will.

Apple’s redesigned TV app is coming to smart TVs and Macs

Apple has redesigned its TV app to make it easy to watch its new Channels, which includes video content from CBS All Access, Cinemax, Comedy Central Now, Epix, HBO, Showtime and Starz, among others. With the overhauled tvOS application, you won't have to use the standalone apps from these networks or streaming services, as you'll have access to everything they have to offer directly from the Apple TV app. Thanks to features like "Up Next" and "For You," Apple says its machine learning is smart enough to know what users should have in their queue, whether that be an episode of a series they're already watching or a new movie they might like.

Apple TV+ subscribers can expect ad-free original shows and movies this fall

On stage at today's "show time" event, Apple CEO Tim Cook announced Apple TV+, an ad-free subscription home for the company's new push into original content. With the Apple TV app now extending onto other smart TV platforms while collecting shows and movies from other outlets into Channels, it's giving people even more of a reason to stick with Apple by adding exclusives you can't get anywhere else. According to senior VP Eddy Cue, "Apple TV+ will be home to some of the highest quality original storytelling that TV and movie lovers have seen yet."

We've heard a lot about its content buying spree over the last year or so, but on stage, execs kicked things off with a video featuring big names like Steven Spielberg, Ron Howard and Octavia Spencer. Spielberg himself appeared on stage first to talk about Apple TV+ and the stories he wants to tell.

Reese Witherspoon and Jennifer Aniston showed up to talk about their new project The Morning Show, along with co-star Steve Carell, before Alfre Woodard and Jason Momoa hit the stage to talk about See, a new sci-fi series coming to the service. Kumail Nanjiani was up next, discussing his experiences as an immigrant that will be a part of the series he's writing with his wife for Apple, Little America.

‘Beneath a Steel Sky’ finally has a sequel and it’s coming to Apple Arcade

Beyond a Steel Sky is a 3D game with a comic-book style overlay, fusing Gibbons' aesthetic with the gaming world. According to Variety, it follows the story of the original game, which presented a future Earth, ravaged by climate change or some other form of man-made devastation. Series protagonist and engineer Robert Foster is back, but this time he's fighting the artificial intelligence system that went live at the end of the first title. Beyond a Steel Sky apparently deals with the battle for privacy and the overwhelming control that corporations exert on society.

Apple Arcade is the company's new approach to mobile, Mac and living-room gaming, offering a subscription for users to access a curated selection of high-quality games. There's no word on price or an exact launch date, though the entire thing is due to land this fall. Other games heading to Apple Arcade include indie gems Where Cards Fall, The Pathless and Hot Lava. Final Fantasy creator Hironobu Sakaguchi is also creating a game called Fantasia for Apple Arcade.

Hackers hijacked update server to install backdoors on ASUS machines

With access to the update server, the attackers were able to distribute malicious files that appeared legitimate because they were given an ASUS digital certificate to make them appear to be authentic. Instead, the phony software updates gave the attackers a backdoor to access infected devices. Kaspersky estimates that about half a million Windows machines received the backdoor from ASUS' update server. However, the attackers appear to have only been targeting about 600 systems. The malware was designed to search for machines by their MAC address. It's not clear for what reason that the attackers focused on that small subset of machines.

Attacks on the supply chain, specifically update servers, are growing more common. Microsoft suffered a similar attack in 2012 when hackers distributed a spying tool called Flame via the Windows updating tool. Popular apps like CCleaner and Transmission were at one point compromised and unknowingly distributing malware to users. Perhaps most notably, the notPetya cyberattack that hit thousands of machines across Europe, Asia, Australia and the US was carried out through a malicious update to an accounting software tool.

To enable the fleet of software and service updates Apple is announcing today, the company is readying iOS 12.2 for your iPads and iPhones.

Beyond News, if you have a pair of Apple's second-generation AirPods on the way, they'll work with your device now.

Uma Thurman and horrifying heart transplants meet in Netflix’s ‘Chambers’

The series is produced by actress and director Leah Rachel, and also stars Tony Goldwyn (from Insurgent and Scandal) and up-and-comer Sivan Alyra Rose.

There's still a lot of mystery surrounding the show -- there's no trailer as we write this, and even the social media accounts are private. It's potentially a big deal for the horror crowd, though, and Thurman's presence shows how Netflix can reel in major stars who might otherwise stick to movies.
