It appears Apple and Amazon have called a truce.

After years of neck and neck rivalry over video, the Amazon Prime video app will be coming to Apple TV, according to a Buzzfeed report. Apple will break the news at its Worldwide Developers Conference in June, the report says, with the app ready for users as soon as this summer.

So the rumors you might've heard last week may indeed be true.

For Amazon Prime members, the one glaring strike against Apple TV has been its inability to stream Amazon video content. Apple's iOS mobile devices have long supported a stripped-down version of Amazon's video app that doesn't allow purchases. But the app, in any form, has never been available for Apple TV.

Competing set-top boxes from Roku, meanwhile, support all the major streaming apps and allow for movie rentals and purchases directly through those apps.

At the heart of the conflict is the fact that Amazon Video and Apple iTunes are rival services. In 2015, Amazon stopped selling Apple TV and Google Chromecast boxes because Amazon didn't want its customers returning boxes after they discovered Prime Video streaming wasn't supported.

As part of the agreement between the two companies, Amazon will reportedly begin selling Apple's set-top box again, according to Buzzfeed.

Neither Apple nor Amazon responded to a request for comment.
