During a recent earnings call, Cook confirmed that Apple plans to produce its own shows in a move that could challenge streaming television giants Netflix and Amazon Prime, which have invested heavily in original content.

Right now, Apple's iPad family includes the 7.9-inch iPad mini; 9.7-inch iPad; and a trio of iPad Pros with 10.5-, 11- and 12.9-inch screens. It's unclear where the model would fall in Apple's iPad lineup, but it would likely offer a mid-tier price above the $329 iPad model while remaining cheaper than the iPad Pro models.

Apple acquired the digital magazine app Texture previous year, which enables you to read a huge number of publications for a single monthly fee, a bit like a music streaming service.

Apple expected to announce new streaming TV service at March 25 event

Apple finally started sending invites to the press on Monday to the company's spring event, which usually takes place at the end of March.

Apple has sent out media invites for its "It's Show Time" event that will be held on March 25 at the Steve Jobs Theater in California. Apple is also expected to share more information about a possible "Netflix for news" service that would allow people to pay a monthly fee to consume news from participating outlets, without having to buy one subscription per outlet, according to the Wall Street Journal. Its Apple-produced content will be free to Apple device owners, while the subscription "channels" (such as HBO in the US) that sit next to it in Apple's TV app will allow users to subscribe to them.
