At a Spring Loaded special event held in April, Apple announced that they are ready to provide Apple Podcast Subscription. This feature was a bit similar to Apple fitness+ and Apple Arcade, which has enabled the creators to pay monthly subscriptions for their podcast, and after that, Apple will cut off in the form of commission.

Apple also announced that these subscriptions would be available in 170 countries from May 2021.In May 2021, Apple sent an email to the podcast creators that the subscriptions of the Podcast had been delayed till June.

There was no proper description of why this had happened, but Apple Insider only informed us that we are planning to provide a much better experience to our users, which is why it is taking time.

No Specific Launch Date

The Apple users were a bit confused as there was no date announced for launching the Podcast Subscriptions. June then, June is two or three days for which is probably not the specific month to launch, as if the product was two or three days far, Apple would not announce a new date for that.

This date might extend as the previous announcement was made in the mid of May, and it might take at least two more weeks due to some holidays, including memorial day and the weekend the work has stopped.

Apple Worldwide Developer Conference is on June 11. Apple might share some news about the Podcast subscriptions at that conference.

Revenue: Podcast Subscriptions Of Apple

The podcast subscription has promised that it would be a reason for generating revenue for Apple. Apple has announced if these subscriptions would start from$0.49 per month, whereas the premium podcasts are at higher prices which are $2.99 and $5.99 per month.

It is also heard that Apple will charge a cut-off of 30% for the first year, 15% for the second year, which will charge podcast creators around $19.99 per year.

However, several developers are challenging Apple to charge the same curt off as app-generated revenue through App Store.

Apple Could Launch Ipads With OLED Screens

Apple has always come up with some exciting features that have always made its devices look premium. Recently Apple has launched the Ipad, has a mini LED screen, but rumors have confirmed that it is not just the last update; Apple might move towards the OLED screens.

This technology was introduced in Apple phones in 2017, which was first included in iPhone X. The resources have confirmed that Apple is planning to introduce OLED Ipads in 2022, which will enhance the Apple device display.

Difference Between OLED And Mini-LED

There is a very slight difference between these two kinds of LED. Both provide an increased contrast in bright colors and deeper in a dark color, but OLED shows more precisely every effect of the pixel, and a different kind of sharpened image appears on the screen.

OLED is much more superior than mini-LED as each pixel in OLED turns on and off, whereas the mini-LED displays pictures in a dim zone.

Through recent resources, it was confirmed that Ming-chi, an International Securities Analyst, said that OLED screens are not suitable for the Ipad as it requires a lot of energy, resulting in heating the device.

It means that such screens that produce high resolutions are not suitable for productivity devices as it then leads to heating up and can cause many other problems.

People carry these kinds of productivity devices on work to the office, and they have important data stored on them. No one would sacrifice their important data just for the sake of an exemplary screen display.

Apple replied that Apple would not be the first one to display an OLED screen on tablets. Some rival companies, including Samsung, Huawei, and Lenovo, are already providing OLED screens in the Tablet.

However, to make Apple’s device different, mini-LED should change to attract the users immediately. Thus people will start buying this device.

Apple Advancement

It is not the only advancement Apple has planned to make, but It was also rumored that Apple might add a Macbook pro with mini-LED in the future. It is not confirmed yet, as Apple has accepted, but it is expected, it would not be confirmed until Apple has accepted the launch of this device with such advanced features.
