Apple Entertainment Bundle Reportedly Coming In 2020

Apple TV+ was announced earlier this year. Publishers share the remaining 50% of the revenue based on how much time Apple News+ subscribers spend reading their articles. A subscriber coming for Music and TV+ could be tempted by Arcade discovering that the service is included in his subscription.

Apple now takes a 50% cut of News+ subscriptions before handing over the other half to publishing partners.

Considering that companies like Amazon offer most of its services through a unified Amazon Prime program, Apple could be contemplating bundling its subscription services - specifically, Apple News+, TV+, and Music - into a single subscription. Apple hasn't put a lot of weight into marketing Apple News+ since its launch-nowhere near as much as Apple Music and Apple TV+. Beyond that, Apple News+ is looking more and more like yesterday's news.

Publishers who signed up to offer their content from the Apple News+ app are reportedly very "disappointed" with the poor sales.

Citing people familiar with the matter, Apple hopes to have all of the details worked out "as soon as 2020" (although that's still a pretty wide time frame).

Over the course of the next year, the honeymoon period for Apple's services business is going to end and the company will face some watershed moments. Now that all of these new subscriptions are out there, it may not be long before Apple looks to bundle them together.

Interestingly, Apple's chief executive officer Tim Cook had also hinted at an iPhone subscription in the past.
