Apple acquired the digital magazine app Texture past year, which enables you to read a huge number of publications for a single monthly fee, a bit like a music streaming service. CBS, Showtime, Starz and Viacom but HBO has still not reached an agreement with Apple, which is reportedly asking for a 30% cut on all subscribers who sign up for third-party services.
Apple hasn't confirmed that this is what it'll be about, but that's the word on the street. Names thrown around by Ives include A24, Lionsgate, Sony Pictures, CBS/Viacom, Netflix, and MGM. Apple typically saves big news about its flagship product, the iPhone, for launch events every September. However, the partnership does not seem to be going smoothly as the report mentions that publishers are not happy with Apple's 50 per cent revenue cut from the service, making them hesitant to finalise the deal.
The streaming TV service, though, is the big gamble - an attempt to try something much more hard than it looks and which is also generating competition at an exponential rate these days. New features should include a wireless charging case, an improved texture created to keep the wireless AirPods from falling out of users' ears, improved audio sound, water resistance, always-on Siri and a new Black color option.
Apple's sixth-generation iPad is on sale right now from Walmart Canada, offering the tablet for $40 off at $379 with free shipping or in-store pickup.
Last year, The New York Times reported that Apple's original series could begin debuting as soon as March 2019.
