Apple is also believed to be working on a subscription news service aimed at shaking up the world of journalism. As MacRumors points out, CoinX is known for past Apple scoops, most notably breaking the iPhone XS, XS Max and XR names a year ago ahead of their launches. Digitimes's sources said that Apple would introduce the devices on March 25th.

Today Apple announced a special event at the Steve Jobs Theater for March 25, 2019, at 10:00 am Pacific time.

Apple hasn't confirmed that this is what it'll be about, but that's the word on the street.

To add fuel to this rumour the invite, sent out by Apple, shows an image of an old-fashioned cinema screen with a countdown clock.

Subscription models in tech-including at Apple, where iPhone sales are cooling while its Services division is thriving-have emerged as new revenue drivers.

Apple has long hinted at a planned video service, spending US$2 billion in Hollywood to produce its own content and signing major stars such as Oprah Winfrey.

On top of programming it's created in-house, Apple is hammering out the final details of agreements to add movies and TV shows from HBO, Showtime, Starz and others, according to Bloomberg.

Apple's services event could also include some new hardware, with the company possibly launching the new AirPods and its much-awaited AirPower wireless charger. If the latest reports are anything to go by, we might be able to get a peek into the long-rumoured service on March 25.
