The company launched its streaming service in 2019 which offers a variety of shows, movies, and more. All streamed content is Apple’s original content, unlike its rival streaming services like Netflix and Amazon. Every month new originals are added to the streaming library. The service is available for $4.99 per month with a 7 days free trial. Read the complete details of the service here.
The official trailer of ‘Dear’ is a beautiful and heart warming compilation of the aforementioned role models reading letters of gratitude from the people whom they have inspired and of thanks for the confidence, self-belief and dedication to work for what they want to achieve and who they want to be.
In the current situation after the horrifying death of George Floyd and other black men and women before him, this series is needed more than ever to give people role models with a message of unity, love, and positivity through their actions. The Black Live Matter movement calls for equality and end of racism which is a divisive evil threatening the peace and harmony of the human society.
Description of the series reads:
Inspired by Apple’s groundbreaking “Dear Apple” ad for the Apple Watch, Dear… is an inventive approach to biographies of the influential people who are shaping culture and society today using letters that fans have written to them. Dear… focuses on key moments from subjects’ lives and their work that has profoundly impacted not only the individuals who have written letters, but the world at large.
So you want to be inspired by role models reading letters from individuals whom they have motivated, talking about their journey through struggles and showcasing themselves as an example to encourage others to believe in themselves and do good for others, then tune-in to Apple TV+.
We will like to take a moment to remember a basketball legend we recently and most unexpectedly lost, Kobe Bryant. May his soul rest in peace.
