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

Apple Air Pods 2 will look the same

Just yesterday, for instance, word surfaced that some publishers were hesitant to join Apple's rumored news subscription service on account of Apple wanting 50% of all revenue.

Given this sort of precedent, it's understandable why many publishers may have an issue with handing over half their revenue to Apple in exchange for a negligible bump in overall income.

Since a lot of enthusiasts are waiting for Apple's Video service that was rumored to debut sometime in April, we could assume that this March event will be a good occasion for Apple to reveal all the details about this new subscription service.

The event would mark Apple's first major product announcement for 2019. It will take place at the Steve Jobs Theater on the Apple Campus.

"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 representatives have told publishers that the subscription service could be priced at about $10 a month, but the final price could change, WSJ said.

When we won (2-0 against City on December 8) at Stamford Bridge it was because we played well and were together. Arsenal at home and Chelsea at home and Everton away is a tough, tough week and we did incredibly.

Greek technology website iPhonehellas claims it has "exclusive information" pertaining to the launch date of Apple's AirPods 2, new iPad models and the AirPower charging mat.

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.

Also, if the March 25 event turns out to be subscription-focused, it isn't clear when new hardware will make an appearance.

An Apple spokesperson declined to comment when contacted by ZDNet. That was previously reported to not be going very well, as Apple is reportedly demanding 50% of the revenue from publishers.

We've seen endless reports over the past year suggesting that Apple wants to bundle together magazine and newspaper subscriptions into a monthly plan.
