Apple to unveil its video streaming service on March 25

The magazine subscription service will be integrated into the existing Apple News app and is based on the company's acquisition of Texture a year ago.

Apple acquired the digital magazine app Texture a year ago, which enables you to read a huge number of publications for a single monthly fee, a bit like a music streaming service. Apple's live stream page gives some clues about the launch event.

However, some reports have also speculated that no new devices will be revealed at the event with Apple using the keynote to release a new movie streaming service and premium news subscription. The invite includes a video that shows the Apple logo below the spotlight with a caption "Its show time".

Currently, Apple sells two types of iPads, including the more affordable $329 model that doesn't come with a brand new design or Face ID support, and the iPad Pro, which starts at $799 and packs all those features.

Apple has been snapping up talent all over the place to build its rival to Netflix and Hulu, including the likes of Reese Witherspoon, M Night Shyamalan, Oprah Winfrey and Thor: Ragnarok director Taika Waititi.

The "it's show time" tagline is all-but-confirmation that Apple's long-mooted video streaming service will make an appearance.

Rumors suggest that Apple will pitch its video and magazine services as separate entities with separate prices, but it could offer a bundle that offers, say, both services and an Apple Music sub at a cheaper price. It's unclear what Apple would call the new mid-range iPad.

We'll find out more on Monday, March 25 with the event taking place at Apple's headquarters in Cupertino from 10am local time - 5pm GMT.
