We still don’t have the News app, the TV app, no AppleCare on Macs and no HomePod coming in 2017...

Apple is a business... so the answer must be business related...market size perhaps (or lack thereof)? Or maybe Canada is not Apple friendly?

Wow, I didn't know that those services/apps were unavailable in Canada. That is strange. Even Europe has AppleCare, right ? Why wouldn't Canada ?

Or perhaps you've replied to a year old thread and things are different now. Homepod arrives north of the border on the 18th and AppleCare is available on Macs. Still no News yet and am unsure on the TV app, but things are different a year on in.

Things were still late right? Whether we talk about it a year later or not doesn’t change the history or the point. Unless you think all history is useless...

Define 'late'. More like delayed when compared to the US but we don't know the reasons. Most often it's due to licensing or regulatory compliance. And othervtimes it's the game of doing a gradual rollout.

So we agree, cool. Its about business. Nothing personal as the OP implied. Thanks!
