San Francisco: Apple plans to announce Amazon Prime video app to its Apple TV App Store during its annual Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC) on June 5 in San Jose, California.

"The app is expected to go live this summer, but the hard launch date might change. Amazon had previously declined to even submit a Prime Video app for inclusion in Apple`s Apple TV App Store, despite Apple`s `all are welcome` proclamations," media company buzzfeed.com reported on Friday.

In January, Apple announced a change in App Store policy increasing the tvOS apps size limit from 200MB to 4GB.

"With the increased data size, developers can include more media in their submission and provide a complete, rich user experience upon installation," the company said in a post.

Also, tvOS apps can use `On-Demand Resources` to host up to 20GB of additional content on the App Store.
