Apple's streaming video service might finally arrive in April

Now according to Bloomberg Apple plans to announce their new streaming services at an event that will happen on March 25th, 2019.

In addition, Apple wouldn't share customer data with publishers. And what may be another signal of that idea is an entire event scheduled to unveil that service.

Apple Inc is planning to integrate its acquired app Texture into Apple News to start its news subscription service.

Greek tech news site iPhoneHellas claims it received confirmed pre-order and release date information from a "reliable source" in Apple's production chain in China. The event will reportedly take place at the Steve Jobs Theater on the Apple Park campus in California. To get around this, many developers don't let people subscribe for their services in apps. Whether Apple's new subscription service will prove advantageous enough to attract major publishers remains to be seen. To this point, Netflix late past year removed the ability for new subscribers to sign up with iOS via in-app subscriptions, thus removing Apple's ability to earn 15% of all subscription fees in the process.

It was previously rumored that Apple would debut new Apple AirPods 2 wireless earbuds in March, but that may no longer be the case. But new hardware like the rumored AirPods update, the long-awaited AirPower charging pad or any new phone, tablet or Mac models aren't on the agenda.

Apple declined comment Wednesday when contacted by Deadline. Indeed, there was a previous rumor that said Apple would offer up a big bundle for its News and original content streaming efforts, so an event could be a way to promote all of it at once. 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 is worth noting that the report does suggest the company may change its plans if it can't nail down negotiations with publishers.
