To ease things at home for people working from their residence and those who are stuck for days in closed premises, Apple has released many e-books and audiobooks for free. Those living in the United States can make use of this to keep them entertained and to take their mind off the situation worldwide.
Apple Books provides these ebooks and audiobooks at no cost for a limited period. If you are already an Apple user with a live Apple ID, you can get this offer to read some interesting stuff. The collection includes plenty of books aimed at young kids who often find themselves restless without being able to hit the park or go out for a stroll.
In other parts of the world and with advice from major film production companies, some of the movies may get released online rather than waiting for movie theaters to open up. The majority of theaters and cinema halls around the globe are locked down. It wouldn’t be until weeks before things return to normal and that creates a crowded situation for lots of films if they get released every weekend, one after the other.
Apple has provided these free audiobooks only in USA but it is expected that they might roll out more such offers in other countries. Amazon and Google on their play store are also expected to make such releases so as to keep people engaged during this time of crisis.
Disney+ previously released the movie Frozen 2 much earlier on their streaming service. It was done to help parents keep their kids occupied while they are working from home, attending to their everyday office duties. The internet is going to be the primary source of work and entertainment in most countries until the pandemic situation becomes more palpable for the general public to walk out in the open.
