Just as Apple promised at its March 2019 keynote, the Apple TV app is now rolling out to some Fire TV devices in time for the launch of Apple TV+ on November 1st.

Amazon published a blog post today stating that Canadians who own the Fire TV Stick (Second Gen) and the Fire TV Stick 4K are getting the app today. Fire TV Basic edition users can also download the app today.

Anyone who owns a Fire TV Cube (1st and 2nd Gen), Fire TV (3rd Gen pendant design) and Toshiba and Insignia Fire TV Edition smart TVs will get the update soon, according to the Fire TV blog.
