Apple expected to launch news subscriptions by early 2019

Now, though, a report claims Apple will be putting the newly acquired Texture to work, using it to integrate a premium news and magazine subscription service into Apple News. These plans are created to help Apple boost its services business to meet revenue goals the company has set for itself over the next few years.

Currently, Apple sells subscriptions for iCloud storage and Apple Music.

He drew the attention to Article 68, saying it even prevented the Parliament from criticising the judiciary and its decisions. Munir Ahmad, Amna Malik and a number of other citizens had moved the court against contemptuous speeches by the PML-N.

The new Texture-News hybrid could launch in the next year.

But it's likely that Apple will approach the subscription service as Texture has, aggregating hundreds of magazines together in an all-you-can-read monthly service, rather than focusing on individual subscriptions. An upgraded Apple News app with the subscription offering is expected to launch within the next year, and a slice of the subscription revenue will go to magazine publishers that are part of the program, the people said. This time, Apple let roughly 20 people go from Texture, including assistants, software engineers, and managers, according to one of the people familiar with the matter.

Speaking of the Brixton stabbing, a Met Police spokesman told Sky News: "Officers attended, along with London's Air Ambulance". Police said his family were still being informed and that formal identification and a post-mortem would be arranged.

If Apple goes through with these plans, it would be treating news similarly to how it treated music around the creation of Apple Music.

Apple will likely carefully curate the partner organizations for its news service. Texture previously had about 100 staff members.

Apple News is now a free app that delivers a personalized selection of content from a choice of publishers, with the ability to follow certain topics as well as subscribe to magazines and newspapers directly through news. Now, Apple Music boasts more than 40 million subscribers. The company's SVP Eddy Cue spoke about a number of topics at SXSW last month, including the current Apple News app. Apple would then split the revenue with the content partners on the backend.
