MarketWatch First Take: Apple leaves a lot of questions about its subscription services unanswered

Apple Inc.’s celebrity-laden product launch Monday unveiled new services for reading news, playing videogames, watching TV shows and a new credit card to pay for all of it, but left too many questions for elicit excitement from consumers or investors.

Apple AAPL, -1.21% unveiled four new offerings Monday for its growing services business, a big area of focus for the company amid a slowdown in iPhone sales: a media service for reading news, a streaming video service, a streaming videogame service and an Apple Pay-connected credit card with no fees. Yet Apple offered a price for only one of the new subscription offerings, the News+ app at $9.99 a month, and even that service left some questions about content unanswered.
