Apple confirms March event, video streaming service launch likely

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. Apple often launches products and services in the weeks following an event.

Apple has sent out media invites for its "It's Show Time" event that will be held on March 25 at the Steve Jobs Theater in California.

If anything, we may only see shows that Apple is already producing, like Carpool Karaoke, included at launch.

On the other side of the rumour mill though, there were whispers of new iPads.

Apple has long hinted at a planned video service, with Chief Executive Tim Cook speaking openly about the company's interest on earnings calls with investors but declining to give any details about what the service might look like. The shows are expected to cover a variety of genres that include drama, documentary, comedy, kids program, etc. Apple has been closely working with former Sony Pictures executives Zack Van Amburg and Jamie Erlicht for the shows that are expected to be released during late 2019.

That is a big shift for Apple, which earlier this year moved to make its Apple Music services work on smart speakers from rivals such as Amazon and partnered with Samsung Electronics Co.

Apple is expected to announce the 10.2-inch iPad during its March 25 event.

It's now unclear exactly what will be revealed at the launch with some expecting new AirPods, iPad and AirPower charging pad to be revealed.
