Apple Announces "It's Show Time" March 25th Event, Here's What to Expect

17 March 2019

The company will also lift the covers off of its highly-anticipated streaming video service, which, like Apple News, is also set to come with a monthly subscription model and will likely immediately go head-to-head with established streaming services, such as Netflix. That said, a big press event would give Apple the platform to tout its iPads as great devices to enjoy all that new content on.

Dissecting the tweet, which delivered the news, it's clear that Apple will replace the current 9.7-inch entry-level iPad with a 10.2-inch one, which is great - especially if Apple keeps the price intact and the larger screen comes at the expense of bezels. We've been hearing about a rumored March 25th event that would bring about at least the video service ahead of any hardware like second-generation AirPods or a new iPad mini. In addition to a video service, there have been rumors that the company will use the event to announce a magazine service that will expand on its existing Apple News product.

The company previously used "It's show time" tag for an event in September 2006 where it introduced movies on iTunes, along with the first iTV revelation (which would be swapped with Apple TV in 2007). Apple's Tim Cook had noted that services will be crucial for the company, as iPhone sales slow and hardware innovation makes the once-annual upgrade less of a draw.

Apple is in talks with HBO, Showtime, and Starz, and all three are expected to join Apple's service eventually.

If anything, we may only see shows that Apple is already producing, like Carpool Karaoke, included at launch. It seems like this will be relaunched as part of the News subscription, similar to how Beats Music was the basis for Apple Music.
