The Cupertino tech giant Apple is all set to launch its new video streaming and news subscriptions services today at Steve Jobs Theater in California. The company is said to be partnering with Hollywood Studios and actors alongside media houses and publications to introduce these new features for the Apple device owners. Apple has recently launched its upgraded versions of its older iPads, iMacs and the new AirPods without any keynote event, which hints Apple’s prominent focus on announcing its new video streaming service. While it is pretty evident that Apple is announcing its new video streaming subscription, a new report suggests Apple’s plans of launching a gaming subscription at the event too.
According to Bloomberg’s latest report, Apple is working on a premium games subscription service but not similar to what we have seen with Google’s latest Stadia, which had launched recently. While Stadia is a cloud-based game streaming service, Apple’s gaming service is said to be limited to App Store where users can get access to all premium paid games via a subscription service on their Apple devices such as iPhones or iPads.
Earlier reports from Cheddar had also hinted Apple’s plans of this new gaming subscription service a couple of months ago. Based on those reports, Apple will be offering prominent paid gaming titles on the Apple Store via a subscription service and the collected revenue is said to be divided between the game developers by calculating on how long did an Apple device user had spent on the particular game.
The report further hints that this new gaming subscription might most likely get announced today alongside the video and news subscription service at Steve Jobs Theater, if not, Apple might be in plans to announce the gaming subscription service at its WWDC 2019 that will take place on June 3-7th. So, what do you think of this new approach from Apple with its new subscription-based services? Do let us know in the comments and stay tuned to PhoneRadar for more such interesting updates.
