Apple is remembering Robin Williams with a new featured section in the iTunes Store, following the beloved actor's death.

One of the most beloved and unforgettable performers in the history of show business, Robin Williams brought laughter and inspiration to millions. Throughout a career that spanned five decades, Williams evolved from stand-up comedian to international movie star. Among the great masters of improv, he transfixed audiences with mile-a-minute comic energy. William's Golden Globe-winning turn in Good Morning, Vietnam demonstrated that his versatile acting talents were equally suited to evoking dramatic complexity. Many of Williams' most iconic performances - in Dead Poets Society, Mrs. Doubtfire, and his Oscar-winning triumph, Good Will Hunting - where dazzling high-wire acts that left audiences in tears of laughter one minute and tears of poignancy the next. An Emmy and GRAMMY winner as well, Williams was a philanthropist who served as a driving force behind Comic Relief USA, which has raised more than $50 million.

Williams died at age 63. The Marin County Sheriff's Office says that authorities found Williams' body inside his home. He was unconscious and not breathing and the coroner suspects suicide due to asphyxia.

After hearing the news, Apple CEO Tim Cook tweeted, "Heartbroken by the news of Robin Williams' passing. He was an incomparable talent and a great human being. Rest in peace."

People were going to go back and watch his films again anyways after his death. I know what your saying but I think that this makes it easier to find films you may not have known he was a part of.

I thought that was what IMDB was for. It would have been nice if they donated whatever money they will make from these sales to whichever charity Robin Williams was most supportive.

Apples greed? They're greedy because they're a company that sells products to make money, just like every other company in the world? You idiotic people crack me up. Apple, Cook, and also Steve, when he was alive, and his wife have donated hundreds of millions of dollars over the years to various charities around the world. Look it up! They just don't gloat about it like others do. If you donate and want publicity or notoriety because you did it, then in the end it's only about you and not the charity or people your helping. And how do you know apple won't donate money from the sales of his films. Like I said, they donate a lot, but quietly. You kind of people always assume shit.
