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

Apple Event March 25

But apparently, this will not be the case, and instead of a hardware piece, the company will be introducing a new service.

BuzzFeed reported on Tuesday that Cupertino is planning to hold a services-focused event for on March 25, where the company will talk about its new services.

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.

News publishers are also concerned over the lack of access about the customer information from Apple as they would like to use that date to market their products to the customers directly. Last year, the company unveiled the iPad 6, the first-ever low-priced slate from the manufacturer to feature support for the Apple Pencil, on March 29.

Apple is expected to launch the service as a premium subset of its Apple News app later this year and remains hopeful it can win over holdouts in the meantime.

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




"In a sign of the times at Apple this planned event for late March will be focused on the subscription news service with hints for more content services to come later this year around the much anticipated video service", industry watcher Dan told The Sun.

Apple already offers a similar service for free called Apple News, which aggregates top stories from free providers.

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.

An Apple spokesperson declined to comment when contacted by ZDNet.

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. Information including credit card numbers and email addresses would not be provided to publishers if they agreed to Apple's terms as they now stand.
