I agree with Benjamin Mayo: The Apple services experience is not good enough. The Music and TV apps are just plain bad. TV in particular is severely lacking in features. The recent additions to iCloud like file and folder sharing are quite welcome but still underperforming, and they were nearly a decade late.

To me, Cue seems far more interested in playing Hollywood Guy, and one could say he’s done a great job on that end of his duties. Arguably, the content available in most of Apple’s services is a home run. Maybe he can focus on that. But the apps and functionality powering Apple’s services need to go to someone who has the time and attention to make them worthy of Apple’s brand. Right now, they aren’t.
