Tomorrow is poised to be a major day for Apple with CEO Tim Cook expected to unveil premium subscription services for the tech company.
While Apple's plans to develop a video streaming service with its own exclusive programming have been known for sometime, a new Bloomberg report indicates the company will also announce a video game subscription service through its App Store. Unlike Google's recently announced plans for its own online gaming service, the planned service will interface specifically with Apple products, including iPhones and iPads, instead of any device with online streaming capability. The service will also reportedly bundle together App Store games from different developers, which users could theoretically access with a single fee.
Interestingly, no new hardware is expected be announced at tomorrow's event, making the presentation entirely dedicated to Apple's new subscription services.
The Apple TV portion of the event is expected to be a star-studded affair, including appearances from J.J. Abrams, Jennifer Aniston, Reese Witherspoon, Jennifer Garner and more. While no launch date for the gaming service has been announced, it is expected to be live by the end of the year with the video streaming service expected to launch this summer.
In addition to the gaming and video services, Apple is expected to announce a news subscription service, allowing readers access to more than 200 different publications for $10 a month as well as an announced revamp of Apple Pay.
