Apple to announce a new subscription-focused service on March 25th

Apple Air Pods 2 changes are on the inside not outside

Instead, Apple is reportedly plotting to launch a paid-for subscription service for news. The deal would offer some outlets significantly less than they make through their own subscription services today; The Wall Street Journal charges more than $20 a month for various digital subscriptions, for example. The event will reportedly take place at the Steve Jobs Theater on the Apple Park campus in California. As well, the report claims that publishers "likely" won't be given access to the data gathered on subscribers, which may make it more hard for them to market themselves to readers. "There will be more things coming, I don't want to tell you what they are".

A CNBC report appears to confirm a lot of what we've been hearing, starting with Apple's plans to launch the service in "April or early May".

If the rumor proves to be true, the AirPods 2 release date could coincide with the iPhone 11's predicted launch date in early September.

The video service is similar to Amazon.com Inc's Prime Video and Netflix Inc products, and will include TV shows and movies either acquired or funded by Apple. We've appreciated Apple's thoughtfulness and leadership on a number publisher concerns over the a year ago.

BuzzFeed reports that Apple is planning to hold an event on March 25, its first of 2019. Reports now emerging indicate that you should not be expecting any dramatic changes in the new Apple AirPods 2 when compared to what is available in the existing AirPods.

But this new service would combine content from news services who lock their content behind a paywall.

We've heard the date of 29 March before, but in our estimations we also think that it is likely Apple will host the event closer that date, with a much leaner pre-order period.

Sources that are familiar with Apple services claim that the focus of this event will be the company's long-rumored news subscription service.

An Apple spokesperson declined to comment when contacted by ZDNet. In comparison, Apple's developer program only takes a 30-percent cut of the revenue generated from app purchases in the App Store.
