Apple plans to launch a subscription service

As mentioned, the meeting is expected to receive many news in software, as it happens every year. Innovations will surely be announced in relation to the design, performance and productivity of the operating systems that feed the company’s ecosystem.

But there can always be some surprise. In relation to this, you can expect some announcement related to new devices, programs or even a completely new plan, such as the subscription service for to facilitate the acquisition of iPhone’s and other products.

This is not officially confirmed, but it is an advance that sources linked to the company gave a few days ago to Bloomberg. It is an option that would imply the payment of a monthly fee to buy the company’s mobile as well as other devices.

The project is currently in the development phase., but that’s a very promising idea that could soon come to fruition. Adopting hardware subscriptions would be a major strategy change for the company, which aims to continue growing in the market.

The idea is to offer the purchase of an iPhone or iPad along with access to services such as data storage iCloud or an Apple Music subscription.

The company plans to let customers sign up for hardware with the same Apple ID and App Store account they already use to buy apps and sign up for services.

The initiative generates a lot of expectation and would undoubtedly be an interesting change of direction for the way of acquiring the company’s products. We will have to see if something is mentioned in this regard at the annual developer conference.
