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. 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. Along with services for TV (which is expected to launch later in this year), Apple is also being speculated to come with its Apple News subscription service. 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. While the iPhone maker is notoriously tight-lipped before its product launches, the invitations offered one possible hint: "It's show time".

While the event is invite-only, anyone will be able to tune into the live stream at 10 a.m. PT on Apple's website, where Tim Cook, who also goes by Tim Apple after a video of President Donald Trump mistakenly calling him that went viral, will kick off the festivities. It would be competing directly with the widely popular services like Netflix, Hulu, Amazon Prime, etc.

The closure of the sacred compound also drew censure from Jordan , the custodian of Muslim holy sites in occupied East Jerusalem . The area was closed in 2003 after allegations that the group overseeing the site was linked to terror activity.

A report by The Wall Street Journal had indicated that Apple was going through a rough patch with respect to negotiations as it was reported to demand 50 percent revenue from the service.

Apple has been suggesting a planned video service for a long time, spending $2 billion in Hollywood to create its own content and signing major stars such as Oprah Winfrey.
