Amazon's video app may finally come to Apple TV

While you can find many Amazon services on many Apple products, one thing you haven't been able to get is Amazon's video service on Apple TV.

But, according to Recode, the two companies are in talks that could see Amazon Video arrive on Apple TV as early as this summer.

The video battle has been particularly contentious between Apple and Amazon, with Amazon having years ago stopped selling rival streaming devices from Apple and Google in favor of its own Fire TV line. At the time, Amazon noted it didn't want to sell TV hardware that didn't support its video service.

Winners and Losers: It's hard to say without being privy to the negotiations. Apple often gets a 30 percent cut of digital goods sold on its iOS hardware, but it's unclear if different economics might be at play here.

In the midst of a global pandemic and national protests over the death of George Floyd, eight states and the District of Columbia held primary elections on Tuesday.

Why it matters: Joe Biden, the presumptive Democratic nominee, needs to win 425 of the 479 delegates up for grabs in order to officially clinch the nomination. There are a number of key down-ballot races throughout the country as well, including a primary in Iowa that could determine the fate of Rep. Steve King (R-Iowa).

State Sen. Randy Feenstra defeated incumbent Rep. Steve King in Tuesday's Republican primary for Iowa's 4th congressional district, according to the Cook Political Report.

Why it matters: King's history of racist remarks has made him one of the most controversial politicians in the country and a pariah within the Republican Party.

Updates: George Floyd protests continue past curfews

Protests over the death of George Floyd and other police-related killings of black people continued Tuesday across the U.S. for the eighth consecutive day — prompting a federal response from the National Guard, Immigration and Customs Enforcement and Customs and Border Protection.

The latest: Protesters were still out en masse even as curfews set in in New York City and Washington, D.C. Large crowds kneeled at Arizona's state capitol nearly an hour before the statewide 8 p.m. curfew, and a peaceful march dispersed in Chicago ahead of the city's 9 p.m. curfew.
