No iPad? Apple's March 25 keynote will be 'services focused'

No iPad? Apple's March 25 keynote will be 'services focused'

Apple's current News offering is free, but the company is expected to launch a subscription news service that will allow subscribers to read unlimited content from publishers who participate in the service.

Apple Inc is planning to integrate its acquired app Texture into Apple News to start its news subscription service. Compared to online newspaper subscriptions and well known news sites, the cost is not unreasonable, especially by Apple's pricing standards.

Apple doesn't typically hold more than one spring media event, though it could this year.

Citing an "unconfirmed but seemingly reliable source", he claims that "brand new AirPods + new color (s) [are] likely to be unveiled this Fall".

There have also been rumours that Apple is experiencing pushback from publishers regarding the upcoming news subscription platform's 50 percent revenue share, according to a recent report from The Wall Street Journal.

It is worth noting that the report does suggest the company may change its plans if it can't nail down negotiations with publishers. However, the company has been butting heads with publishers over monetary details-Apple reportedly wants to keep 50 percent of subscription revenue from the service.

He went to a knee and when he got up, his face ejaculating blood, he gave no indication to the ref he wanted to continue. His power is always a factor, and he began showing it early with punishing shots to the body.

The report comes hours after The Wall Street Journal reported that Apple has run into resistance during negotiations with top news publishers over the terms of its subscription news service.

According to the report, both the New York Times and the Washington Post have rejected deals because the terms are too poor.

"The news service is not moving the needle for Apple bulls but it speaks to a strategic shift within Cupertino to focus on services separate than hardware releases".

Apple declined to comment on or confirm a March 25 event.

Back in late January, The Globe and Mail reported that Steve Maich, the former senior vice-president of publishing at Rogers, will lead Apple's News operation in Canada. Apple would also not provide customer data to publishers, including credit card info and email addresses.
