Here's What To Expect At Apple Special Spring Event 2019:

A couple of weeks ago, when Apple announced to host the Special Event 2019 on March 25, many speculated that the company would unveil multiple hardware products along with new multi-media streaming service. But, last week, it in series of three days, launched iPad Air (3rd gen), iPad mini (5th gen), upgraded iMac series, AirPods (2nd gen), new Watch band spring collection along with iPhone cases, hinting that the company didn't want the hardware products to consume too much time on the stage and make the invitees lose patience before the final announcement. Personally, I imagined, Tim Cook, taking the stage after the hardware announcement and say the words 'One more thing...' But, as we know, it won't be happening that way, at least in the upcoming event.

However, there is a lot of significance for Apple and this probably in the long term may become a cash cow for the company, like the current iPhone, which by the way is losing interest from customers from the past quarter. More and more people are restraining to go for new iPhone after two years, instead of waiting for one more year to get one.

It is widely reported Apple will foray into the multimedia streaming service, which will take on giants such as Netflix, Amazon Prime Video and Hulu, among others.

Apple is said to be spending close to $2 billion dollars to produce its own shows and the interesting thing about the deals with show producers is that all content to show on Apple service will be family oriented and there will no adult content.

Apple has reportedly signed several big Hollywood celebrities such as Oprah Winfrey, Steven Spielberg and also Reese Witherspoon and Jennifer Aniston are already working on 'The Morning Show' TV series.

Also, Apple is said to partner HBO to offer the latter's content on its App TV app for a monthly subscription for $9.99. It is expected to collaborate with Show Time and other content partners in the near future.

Besides the new multi-media streaming, the Cupertino-based company is also expected to announce Apple News subscription, which entitles customers to access top media websites including Wall Street Journal and 200 other magazines for a monthly subscription of $9.99.
