With an aim to promote original programming amid the growing video streaming war, Apple has announced a multi-year content partnership with producer-host Oprah Winfrey. Together, Winfrey and Apple will create original programmes that "embrace her incomparable ability to connect with audiences around the world", the tech giant said in a statement on Saturday.
