Samsung TVs with Apple’s iTunes and AirPlay 2 Now Available

According to Cult of Mac, Samsung is now releasing smart TVs to the market that will have iTunes and AirPlay 2 functionality.

These new Samsung smart TVs will work for the following models according to Cult of Mac:

• Q900: 65”, 75”, 82”, 85”, 98”

• Q90: 65”, 75”, 82”
• Q80: 55”, 65”, 75”, 82”
• Q70: 49”, 55”, 65”, 75”, 82”
• Q60: 43”, 49”, 55”, 65”, 75”, 82”

QLED Lifestyle 4K TVs:
• The Frame: 43”, 49”, 55”, 65”
• The Serif: 55”

4K UHD RU Series
• RU8000: 49”, 55”, 65”, 75”, 82”
• RU7300 (Curved): 55”, 65”
• RU7100: 43”, 49”, 55”, 58”, 65”, 75”

AirPlay 2 will add features such as being able to show your device’s screen onto another screen. It also allows for the ability to have music played in multiple rooms, which could be from a device like the Apple TV and the HomePod.

You can also tell Siri which speakers you want your music to play through. Say you have both a Bose sound system and a HomePod. You’ll be able to tell Siri, “Hey Siri, play ‘Someone You Loved’ by Lewis Capaldi on my HomePod.” From there, if everything works, the song should immediately start playing from Apple Music.

Another situation could be that you are watching a show like Superstore on Hulu, and from your iPhone (or iPad), you will be able to move the content from the Apple TV from your living room and move it to a smart TV with AirPlay 2 in your bedroom (or other room).


iTunes is also now being offered on smart TVs. As of right now, it is only the Samsung TVs that will be getting iTunes. Brands like LG, Sony and Vizio will not be getting the iTunes app.

Apple’s Eddy Cue said in a statement:

“We look forward to bringing the iTunes and AirPlay 2 experience to even more customers around the world through Samsung Smart TVs, so iPhone, iPad and Mac users have yet another way to enjoy all their favorite content on the biggest screen in their home,” said Eddy Cue, senior vice president of Internet Software and Services at Apple.

It is currently unknown when the other smart TVs are going to be released to the public, but the Samsung ones are out now. 2018 Samsung TVs that are compatible will be getting a software update where AirPlay 2 and iTunes will become available to users with the following TV models listed above, according to 9to5Mac.
