Disney and Apple are some of the largest, most-respected, and most recognizable brands in the entire world. The two have collaborated many times throughout the years working most closely when Disney acquired Pixar making Steve Jobs, Apple’s founder.
Disney’s CEO Bob Iger has sat on the Apple Board of Directors since 2011, but he has stepped down due to a coming conflict of interest.
Disney+, Disney’s new streaming service, is set to release on November 12th, just twelve days after Apple TV+.
Since these two services will be in direct competition, Iger resigned last month.
Disney is not ending its connection to Apple, though. MyDisneyExperience, Disney’s proprietary app, was first released in the Apple app store for iPhone and iPad before it was released for Android. What’s more, Apple devices still prevail in Guest Relations and Disney Parks logistics.
Despite their business separation, Disney+ will be available on Apple’s Platforms including Apple TV.
