Apple Wants 50% of Publishers' Revenue for News Subscription Service

Apple's Holding a Surprise Event on March 25, Here's What to Expect

According to the report, the event will take place on Monday, March 25 and will be held at Apple's Steve Jobs Theater on the Apple Park Campus.

In our estimation, taking Apple's former habits into account, that means it will host an event on the Tuesday before pre-orders open; on the aforementioned 19 March.

Among the products that are expected to be released by Apple Inc. this year are the Apple AirPods 2 and the new Air Power wireless charger.

"While the exact disagreement between Apple and HBO isn't known", the report reads, "media companies have been concerned about data sharing and revenue splits as Apple tries to aggregate existing services in new ways". Apple Music, for example, continues to grow at an impressive clip, with Tim Cook revealing during the company's most recent earnings conference call that the music streaming service now has upwards of 50 million subscribers.

It's also no secret that Apple may be working on a news subscription service.

Apple already offers a similar service for free called Apple News, which aggregates top stories from free providers. Multiple major publishers have, according to the sources, failed to sign onto the plan due in part to the financial terms; among these publishers is allegedly the New York Times and Washington Post.

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

We spoke to expert analyst Dan Ives, of Wedbush Securities, who said he thinks rumors of a news service launch are true - but fresh gadgets could also be on the way soon. But apparently, this will not be the case, and instead of a hardware piece, the company will be introducing a new service.

An Apple spokesperson declined to comment when contacted by ZDNet.

News publishers are also concerned over the lack of access about the customer information from Apple as they would like to use that date to market their products to the customers directly.
