Apple's Spring Release on March 25 does not release new hardware
The paid news subscription service is known as Netflix in the press, where users pay a certain monthly subscription fee for unlimited access to news publishers'partners' articles.
There have been reports that Apple plans to launch its news payment service later this year. However, according to the Wall Street Journal, Apple and its publisher partners disagree on the revenue share of the service: Apple requires half of its revenue as a commission, and the other half will be allocated to publishers based on the amount of articles read. The service is reportedly priced at $10 a month.
According to the media, press and publishers are cautious about the agreement because of dissatisfaction with financial terms such as income distribution and Apple's desire to control users'Apple ID and credit card information. Among them, two well-known American media, the New York Times and the Washington Post, have not yet agreed to use their content in Apple News Subscription Service.
In addition, a combination of overseas media news, the focus of the conference is that the paid content service may not have any new hardware releases, including the 10-inch iPad, the new version of the iPad mini, the second generation of AirPods, or the much-anticipated IrPower charger.
