Today Apple announced a special event at the Steve Jobs Theater for March 25, 2019, at 10:00 am Pacific time. The latter has been in the works for a long time, possibly years, and the former will be the fruit of a purchase of the digital magazine subscription service previously known as Texture.

Apple, which recently stopped disclosing iPhone unit sales data, is increasingly trying to turn investors toward the long-term value of its services ecosystem. The invite includes a video that shows the Apple logo below the spotlight with a caption "Its show time".

Apple has reportedly invested more than $1.3 billion into its video streaming launch, including a signed partnership with Oprah. 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. Apple typically saves big news about its flagship product, the iPhone, for launch events every September.
