Apple acquired the digital magazine app Texture past year, which enables you to read a huge number of publications for a single monthly fee, a bit like a music streaming service.
Apple has revealed the dates of its "Special Event" that will be held on March 25 at the Steve Jobs Theatre.
Apple did not specify the event's focus in its invitation and gave a single - line description: "It's time to show".
On the other side of the rumour mill though, there were whispers of new iPads. The report also mentioned Apple is in talks with various celebrities for attending the event celebrities like Jennifer Anniston, Jennifer Garner, Reese Witherspoon and director JJ Abrams.
If Netflix and Amazon were not enough for you, Apple is set to join the league of video streaming services. 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.
It's not yet clear which news sites will be included, as Apple is said to be still negotiating financial terms with some news sites. But an iPad with a 10.5-inch screen would probably have a design similar to the 2017 iPad Pros.
Apple finally started sending invites to the press on Monday to the company's spring event, which usually takes place at the end of March.
