The "Up Next" section of the Apple TV app is a useful feature that helps you keep track of what shows you are watching and where you are in each show. So if you've been watching 20 different shows across Apple TV+, Netflix, Amazon Prime, Hulu and Disney+, you should be able to see at a glance that you are on episode 5 of The Mandalorian and season 2 episode 8 of The Handmaid's Tale and so on.
Turning on subtitles in your various media sources like Netflix, Hulu, HBO, etc. is usually easy enough, often just requiring you to tap the "CC" button or open up the app's settings. If, however, you use subtitles all the time, you can permanently turn them on in iOS settings. Once they are on, they will show up on everything you watch through the TV app. What's more, you can choose from several caption styles and even customize your own. Here's how to do it on iPhone and iPad:
