That’s cheap not giving those who purchased an iPhone last year and got Apple TV+ free for a year the same deal if they buy another product this year

Wait did I miss something? I thought Apple TV would continue to be free as long as you purchase a new device each year. Does it mean that you can only get the one year free and then no matter if you get new device or not you will not be able to take advantage of the free offering? I thought every year get a new phone and get Apple TV free
Nope. That was never the offer.

Apple Arcade needs more games for the mature crowd. Games like GTA, or whatever else is hot right now for grown-ups.
