Apple’s terms for subscription news service face resistance from publishers

Apple already offers a similar service for free called Apple News, which aggregates top stories from free providers.

We've heard the date of 29 March before, but in our estimations we also think that it is likely Apple will host the event closer that date, with a much leaner pre-order period.

If you were holding your breath for an early 2019 release for Apple's AirPods 2, you could be in for a disappointment - if well-known leaker OnLeaks' latest tweet is anything to go by. Customers will reportedly pay a monthly subscription fee for access, but a new report claims Apple's alleged financial terms aren't sitting well with publishers.

That's according to BuzzFeed News, which cites sources who say the event will be held at the new Steve Jobs Theatre on the recently-completed Apple Park campus in California.

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. Once again, the source mentions that there will be no new hardware during the event.

On the other hand, you probably shouldn't expect any physical products to be unveiled at the event.

The tech giant told some news organizations it'd keep around half the subscription revenue from the rumored service, according to people familiar with the matter, the Journal said.

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