Apple on Tuesday updated its Events app for fourth and fifth-generation Apple TV devices, as it prepares for its March 25 “It’s Show Time” event. The event is expected to premiere the Cupertino firm’s upcoming streaming television and Apple News subscription services.
The Events app is free, and can be downloaded from the tvOS App Store. The updated app features the same darkened movie theater theme as the event invitations that were sent out to the media last week.
Apple’s streaming television service, while expected to be previewed at the shindig, is likely to be launched later this year. Apple has over two dozen original shows in the planning or production stages, including series featuring major stars, such as Jennifer Aniston, Reese Witherspoon, Steve Carell, and Jennifer Garner, to name a few. Many of the stars are expected to make an appearance at the event.
The Apple News service is expected to add paid subscriptions to Apple News, offering unlimited access to magazines and paywalled content from news sites, such as The New York Times, the Washington Post, and The Wall Street Journal for a $9.99 per month subscription fee.
It is still possible we may see a few updates for Apple hardware and accessories, including an upgrade for Apple’s AirPods, the long-delayed AirPower wireless charging mat, and possibly new iMacs. Apple debuted new iPads on Monday, so any other hardware debuts this month are likely to be announced either before or after the event, via press release.
Apple’s Events app will live stream the March 25 event at 10:00 a.m. Pacific Time (1:00 p.m. Eastern Time) from the Steve Jobs Theater on the Apple Park campus.
