Apple may launch subscription-based news service at a special event on March 25

14 February 2019 3

Prior to its WWDC event, Apple is expected to hold one more event but it will not bring any new hardware. Reportedly, this event will be held on March 25 and it will solely be dedicated to its much-anticipated subscription-based news content service.

The report from Buzzfeed cites some unknown sources and claims that Apple will unveil its subscription-based service on the day. So, there will be no new AirPods or the iPad Mini. Both these products are staying in rumors for so long now and it was expected they may come before Apple’s other products.

According to the report, the event is going to be held at Apple Park campus in the Steve Jobs Theater on 25 March. There’s no information regarding the video-streaming service and Apple is only expected to make an announcement around its news service.

The report further states that Apple plans to charge $10 as subscription fees for the news service and it will take $5 while the remaining will go to participating publishers. A report from Reuters suggests that the publications aren’t happy from Apple decision and are resistive to it.

Meanwhile, MacRumors decode that Apple has its WWDC scheduled for June and it may happen between June 3 and June 7 this year. The Cupertino-based company is expected to announce iOS 13 and macOS 10.15 alongside some other interesting announcements around its software.
