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

Apple's Holding a Surprise Event on March 25, Here's What to Expect

Apple News is a service for Apple devices that delivers current news curated by editors with some level of personalization. In other words, that could include original Apple video content and news, along with Apple Music and iCloud storage tiers, all for one monthly fee.

It was previously rumored that Apple would debut new Apple AirPods 2 wireless earbuds in March, but that may no longer be the case.

There have also been rumours that Apple is experiencing pushback from publishers regarding the upcoming news subscription platform's 50 percent revenue share, according to a recent report from The Wall Street Journal.

BuzzFeed writes, citing unnamed sources, that Apple is getting ready to hold a press event on March 25 at Steve Jobs Theater on its Apple Park campus.

It is worth noting that the report does suggest the company may change its plans if it can't nail down negotiations with publishers.

According to a report in The Wall Street Journal, Apple has pitched to publishers that it plans to keep half of the revenue generation by the subscription service, whereas the remaining half will be distributed among the publishers based on the time users engaged with their articles.

If the rumor proves to be true, the AirPods 2 release date could coincide with the iPhone 11's predicted launch date in early September.

OnLeaks, on the other hand, has written a Tweet stating that his sources has told him that the new AirPods will not be released until "the fall".

"We believe there will be another event in April at which point we expect iPad and product announcements to be launched".

More than that, Apple is also said to be mulling a combined subscription bundle that could incorporate all of them together.
