Apple AirPods 2 reportedly not coming until end of 2019

Apple AirPods 2 reportedly not coming until end of 2019

Apple is reportedly planning to host its first major product event of 2019 next month, where it is expected to talk about subscription services. The deal would offer some outlets significantly less than they make through their own subscription services today; The Wall Street Journal charges more than $20 a month for various digital subscriptions, for example.

Normally Apple events are reserved for new gadgets - like an iPhone 11 or last year's Apple Watch 4 - so the rumored March 25 keynote would be a break from tradition.

The tech giant told some news organizations it'd keep around half the subscription revenue from the rumored service, according to people familiar with the matter, the Journal said.

Apple is known to be working on a video content platform that could include original TV shows and films, as well as a separate media subscription service that would allow unlimited access to magazines - just like the Texture app it acquired a year ago.

Smartphone makers are scrambling for ways to increase revenue now that they have realized consumers are not interested in buying new $1,000 devices every single year, or even every two years. It'll be a premium product within Apple News, according to an earlier Bloomberg report.

A premium news subscription could cost around $10 per month, the same that Apple Music now costs.

Did you know we have a YouTube Channel?

Past rumors have suggested that the original TV content platform could be launched this spring, which would line up with a March 25 event.

For now, we will have to wait until Apple officially announces its new service to learn more. The service has been described as "Netflix for news", allowing members to read an unlimited amount of content from partnered publishers for a set monthly fee. Reports now emerging indicate that you should not be expecting any dramatic changes in the new Apple AirPods 2 when compared to what is available in the existing AirPods.

Apple declined comment Wednesday when contacted by Deadline.
