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. 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.
It was previously rumored that Apple would debut new Apple AirPods 2 wireless earbuds in March, but that may no longer be the case.
The company's premium news service will be integrated into the Apple News app, letting consumers subscribe to a bundle of titles for a monthly fee. The new iPad mini 5 and the iPad 7 are expected to launch side by side with varying prices, and they will retain the Touch ID security feature instead of the more advanced Face ID.More news: Omar: ‘I unequivocally apologize’ after backlash over new Israel tweets
Did you know we have a YouTube Channel? Reuters said the plan would likely be to launch via Apple's App Store, which is available in more than 100 countries. New rumors posted today (February 12, 2019) have given conflicting indications as to when the putative AirPods 2 may be released. "On services, you will see us announce new services this year", Cook said. An announcement for the news service is expected in March, Buzzfeed reported. Once again, the source mentions that there will be no new hardware during the event.
Apple declined comment Wednesday when contacted by Deadline. 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.
As for the original programming Apple has been working on, some of the projects in the works include a revamp of the 1980s hit Amazing Stories, a new comedy series from It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia stars Rob McElhenney and Charlie Day, and projects from La La Land creator Damien Chazelle.
