Apple confirms March event, video streaming service launch likely

However, some reports have also speculated that no new devices will be revealed at the event with Apple using the keynote to release a new movie streaming service and premium news subscription.

Matthew Panzarino's tweet shows a film reel countdown, which heavily suggests the Apple video service.

We'll find out more on Monday, March 25 with the event taking place at Apple's headquarters in Cupertino from 10am local time - 5pm GMT.

It's now unclear exactly what will be revealed at the launch with some expecting new AirPods, iPad and AirPower charging pad to be revealed.

The special event will be live streamed on Apple's special event page and will take place at the Steve Jobs theater in Cupertino on March 25, 2019, at 10:00 a.m. PDT or 5:00 p.m. GMT.

Apple has confirmed that it will hold an event on 25 March, where it's expected to announce its new TV streaming offering.

Apple has been dealing with the reality of slowing iPhone sales for months, which means a focus on new services could be vital to growing its business. As MacRumors points out, CoinX is known for past Apple scoops, most notably breaking the iPhone XS, XS Max and XR names previous year ahead of their launches.

The TV service is expected to launch globally, an ambitious move to rival services from Netflix Inc and Amazon.com Inc's Prime Video. It seems like this will be relaunched as part of the News subscription, similar to how Beats Music was the basis for Apple Music.

Apple is also in discussions with HBO, part of AT&T Inc-owned WarnerMedia, to become part of the service and it could yet make it in time for the launch, according to a person familiar with the matter.
