Eddy Cue, Apple's senior vice president of services, has decided to shake some things up.
According to a new report from Business Insider (via MacRumors), the executive is restructuring the services team to focus more on streaming and advertising. Cue reportedly sees both as key areas for growth and has made executive-level changes in order to provide more focus in both areas.
One source said that Apple's advertising business is now "big enough to live on its own."
As far as what Apple might be going after with streaming, the report focuses in on sports. Apple TV+, which recently acquired the rights to Friday Night Baseball, is also rumored to potentially serve as the destination for NFL Sunday Ticket and some NBA games.
