Apple Plans to Launch Its 'Netflix for News' Service Next Month

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.

According to Buzzfeed, Apple's event is scheduled for Monday, March 25th at the Steve Jobs theater.

Major publishers aren't too happy about Apple's proposed financial terms for its subscription news service, according to a Tuesday report by The Wall Street Journal. The publication notes that it is unlikely that the company will talk about any physical products at the March event, including the AirPods 2 or the rumoured next-generation iPad mini.

Some information was circulating through the rumor mill today, pointing that Apple was preparing a mid-March hardware event that would reveal some new products from the company. Last year, the company unveiled the iPad 6, the first-ever low-priced slate from the manufacturer to feature support for the Apple Pencil, on March 29.

"In a sign of the times at Apple this planned event for late March will be focused on the subscription news service with hints for more content services to come later this year around the much anticipated video service", industry watcher Dan told The Sun. That service is expected to launch as early as April.

According to the Wall Street Journal, Apple wants to charge users about $10 (likely £10, too) for the paid Apple News service. Should the news service take off as a success, offering a year's worth of support is easy.

Apple CEO Tim Cook recently teased that "new services" from Apple are coming in 2019 during an interview with CNBC's Jim Cramer.

Apple, for its part, has not commented on the claims.

A report the other day said Apple would release the second-gen AirPods and the AirPower universal wireless charger this spring, and now we have more details about the upcoming launch from a couple of sources.

More than that, Apple is also said to be mulling a combined subscription bundle that could incorporate all of them together.
