The company has been working on a news subscription service that works similar to Netflix for a while, and it's getting ready to launch the service next month.
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. So if you've been waiting for the new iPad & iPad Mini, new iPod, and second-gen AirPods, you'll probably need to wait a little longer.
Apple is reportedly planning to hold a keynote on March 25th where the company will reveal its often-rumored news subscription platform, according to a BuzzFeed News report.
It is worth noting that the report does suggest the company may change its plans if it can't nail down negotiations with publishers. 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.

Cardi B Deactivates Instagram Following Rant
Cardi B recently addressed people who feel she was she was undeserving of her Grammy Award - and it wasn't pretty. In response, Cardi went off, posting a video on Instagram saying in part that she's "sick of this s***".
This reticence is exacerbated by the loss of subscriber data such as credit card, email and address information which would come with ceding control to the middle man.
"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".
On the other hand, you probably shouldn't expect any physical products to be unveiled at the event.
"With much pushback from publishers Apple is realizing this news service bundle will have its share of hurdles to find success with consumers as well as content partners".
"Sources described the event as subscription services focused, but declined to say anything about Apple's standalone video streaming service which is also rumored to debut in 2019".
