One part of the many services of Apple is Apple Books, and even though it still exists, it might be getting one new service in it by the end of this year.
A new article by The Economist talks about how large of a company Apple wants to become, a new service the company is hinting at adding is a service that would be like the Netflix of audiobooks.
Apple Books, for those who are unaware, is Apple’s version of Amazon Kindle online and was previously called “iBooks.” When it comes to audiobooks, Amazon does have its own service called Audible that provides the company and its customers to access to audiobooks.
The Economist article states the following when it comes to a new audiobook subscription service:
“In the past couple of years Apple has made smaller media bets including Arcade, a subscription gaming package, News+, a publishing bundle, and Fitness+, which offers video aerobics classes. There is talk of an audiobooks service later this year.”
While the article does not point in a clear direction, we should potentially expect to see an audiobooks subscription service by either March, September or October 2022. It is a feature that could be announced during WWDC 2022 when it presents iOS 16 too.
