Eddy Cue was scheduled to go onstage at SXSW in Austin, Texas, today to discuss Apple's media ambitions.

The interview is scheduled to start any moment now, so stay tuned for updates!

John Loughlin, CEO of Next Issue Media and Texture, said in a release the company "could not imagine a better home or future for the service". At the time when Facebook has very publicly moved away from news and media, Apple appears to be moving further into that space.

Apple reported that it finished 2017 with cash reserves of $285 billion, much of that stashed overseas. That's enough to potentially buy a media big hitter like Netflix.

In a statement on the company's website, Apple emphasised its focus on trustworthy news sources, a subtle dig at Silicon Valley rivals that have helped to spread false news and disinformation. Similarly, the company isn't interested in offering its own YouTube-style short videos. It's now reportedly developing Steven Spielberg's science fiction series "Amazing Stories", among other series. According to 9to5Mac, Cue teased that Apple will have "a technology angle that will be a "surprise" to its service". "When you think of content, great storytelling is what's important".
