Get an overview of all the top Apple stories of the week in one post. In this week's Apple Core rundown we'll take a look at the possible dates for Apple's next big launch event along with all the announcements we're expecting to come along with it. We have more details about Apple's product lineup for the first half of 2019, and when the latest software updates are expected to roll for all your Apple devices. This week Apple has also been in hot water for hosting a Saudi app that lets men track their wives and daughters.

Both Buzzfeed and Bloomberg have published reports this week suggesting there's going to be a launch event at the Steve Jobs Theater at Apple's headquarters on March 25. Apple however, has not yet indicated that it's planning to hold a March event. And until we see an official invitation, which would likely happen a week or so before, the final date could still be up for grabs.

March - Apple - Event - Year - Apple

A March Apple event wouldn't be too surprising. Last year Apple held its iPad event in Chicago during the last week in March. This time around it's unlikely we would see new iPads, or hardware of any sort. The headliners for this event, according to the reports, are Apple's new subscription services.

According to Bloomberg, Apple will be launching its video streaming and news services at the event. Apple has invested roughly $1 billion in producing original content for its Netflix-style streaming service with at least 25 original shows such as dramas, comedies, docuseries and kids' programming in the works. The company has reportedly already invited a few celebrities from some of the series it's working on, including Reese Witherspoon, Jennifer Aniston, Jennifer Garner and director J.J. Abrams, to attend.
