Apple confirms event for March 25 and hints at unveiling something TV-related
Put March 25 in your diary, as Apple has finally confirmed the date of its first launch event of 2019 after weeks of speculation. We suspect that Tim Cook and his team will focus on Apple's growing service offerings like Apple Music, especially in light of declining year-on-year iPhone sales.
As previously speculated, we suspect that Apple will use its March launch event to announce its new video streaming service to rival Amazon, HBO and Netflix. The company has hinted as much in its corresponding teaser, in which it reuses the "It's show time" tagline that it used before announcing the Apple TV in 2006.
There is also speculation that Apple plans to announce a premium news service, having launched Apple News in Canada earlier this year. The service may feature digitised versions of the New York Times or the Washington Post among others. Moreover, the company could announce two new budget iPads, particularly as the iPad 6 is now over a year old. We may also see second generation AirPods, along with the long overdue AirPower, a wireless charging mat that combines proprietary wireless charging technology with the Qi open standard.
You can watch the March 25 launch event on Apple from 10:00 PDT or 17:00 UTC.
