Apple's live stream page gives some clues about the launch event.

Apple, which recently stopped disclosing iPhone unit sales data, is increasingly trying to turn investors toward the long-term value of its services ecosystem.

Rumours about the company's new video-streaming services have been around for quite some time. 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 this case, however, Singer arranged for someone to take the test for the students, or paid insiders to fix their scores. On a call with a wealthy parent, prosecutors said, Mr Singer summed up his business.

While we don't know precisely how Apple's streaming service will look until that March 25th showcase, it's very likely to get its hooks into almost all of the company's media-consuming hardware, from iPhone to Apple TV. The highlight of the event is expected to be the company's new news subscription service that will allow users to subscribe to newspapers, magazines, etc. through Apple.

During a recent earnings call, Cook confirmed that Apple plans to produce its own shows in a move that could challenge streaming television giants Netflix and Amazon Prime, which have invested heavily in original content.

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. However, the partnership does not seem to be going smoothly as the report mentions that publishers are not happy with Apple's 50 per cent revenue cut from the service, making them hesitant to finalise the deal.
