Apple TV + is a bit different than most other streaming services on the market.
While platforms like Netflix, Disney +, and Crave reveal full lists of what’s coming to their services each month, Apple generally only makes release date announcements on a case-by-case basis.
As a result, this can make it a bit difficult to keep up with when a show or movie hits Apple TV +, especially when the service’s content deployment is slower than many of its peers.
Given all that, we decided to take a look at what do know will be coming to Apple TV + throughout 2021 and round it up accordingly. The upcoming Apple TV + content list is especially worth noting if you’re someone who has a one-year trial of the service through the purchase of an Apple device, as the tech giant now extends its free period until July.
Of course, with the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic impacting production, some release dates may change. On top of that, Apple can buy more content for the service, as it did with Tom Hanks. Greyhound last year.
All that being said, below is a breakdown of what we know is coming to Apple TV + later in 2021. We will also update this story as more release dates are confirmed.
