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

Corroborating previous reports about Apple's TV plans, the report claims that Apple's original content will be available for free for iOS users and will also enable users to seamlessly sign up for streaming packages from other content creators. It will take place at the Steve Jobs Theater on the Apple Campus. Another is Apple's supposed desire to get a minimum of one year of content from some publishers; some of the potential partners reportedly want more flexibility to leave the service.

Smartphone makers are scrambling for ways to increase revenue now that they have realized consumers are not interested in buying new $1,000 devices every single year, or even every two years.

Another major concern is that, like with any other Apple product or service, publishers won't have access the same level of data about subscribers than they would from a normal subscription, such as credit card information and email addresses. The service is rumored to launch later this year.

As with any rumor, we can't be 100% sure if it's true, and with no firm indication from Apple, we can only speculate about a release date for the Apple AirPods 2. Since Apple announced in November that it would no longer break out iPhone sales in its quarterly earnings reports, investors will likely be looking to the growth of its services business moving forward, which reached an all-time high of $10 billion (R137.4 billion) during the holiday quarter.


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

According to the report, both the New York Times and the Washington Post have rejected deals because the terms are too poor. The company has been working on a news subscription service that works similar to Netflix for a while, and it's getting ready to launch the service next month. Since it comes pre-installed on all Apple devices, it has become one of the most popular news services on the market.

Apple declined comment Wednesday when contacted by Deadline. Apple has typically sought a cut of between 30 percent for apps in the App Store to 15 percent for premium channel apps such as HBO.
