Cue is senior vice president of Internet software and services for Apple.

On Monday, the smartphone maker announced that it would buy digital magazine subscription service Texture for an undisclosed sum.

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

CNN's Dylan Byers pressed Cue on the question of fake news and how other major tech players, notably Facebook and Google, have struggled with the problems that have arisen from the desire to maintain open platforms that don't limit free speech.

Cue also revealed that nearly 40 people are now dedicated to building out Apple's TV content business.

Additionally, Cue discussed Apple's AR initiatives, noting that "we think AR is a very mainstream product and something you're going to use all the time, every day".

"The financial part ... isn't the issue", Cue said. At that point, we should have more information both as to the intentions of the company with the service as well as the future of the application as it now stands. According to 9to5Mac, Cue teased that Apple will have "a technology angle that will be a "surprise" to its service".

Apple made its first big push to integrate magazines and newspapers into its devices with an application called Newsstand in 2011.

However, Cue admitted the company still needs help developing its original programming vision. The move appears to be quite a significant strategic play from Apple. Cue revealed on Monday that Apple's worldwide video team is now about 40-people strong and has begun to expand into global hiring. He gave an example about how its TV app handles live sports, giving notifications when something it thinks you'll be interested in, even if it's a nail biter game.

The executive also revealed Apple has 38 million Apple Music subscribers. "We draw a set of guidelines that are published so everyone in the world can read them", he explained, adding that Apple does draw the line with apps that allow people to buy and sell guns, show animal cruelty or display violence against people.
