The company is also expected to talk about its new TV streaming service at the event, though that is yet to be confirmed. CBS, Showtime, Starz and Viacom but HBO has still not reached an agreement with Apple, which is reportedly asking for a 30% cut on all subscribers who sign up for third-party services.

The video service, which is created to rival offerings from Netflix Inc. and Amazon.com Inc., will couple Apple-developed or funded TV shows and movies with the ability to subscribe to content from providers like Starz, Bloomberg News reported last month. 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. That deal helped the firm launch Apple Music, so we shouldn't completely rule out a similar transaction for its video streamer. But reports have suggested that revenue splits and data sharing is still a sticking point between Apple and subscription services.

Are you excited about Apple's March 25th event? Before that, in September, Apple unveiled the latest iPhones, as well as the Series 4 Apple Watch. The event will start at 10:00 a.m.

When it comes to selling iPhones, Apple hasn't been able to grab the market share it wanted in China, and has struggled in the US, where people are holding onto their smartphones for an average of 32 months, up from 25 months the previous year, according to a 2018 report from NPD Connected Intelligence.
