About Apple News

Apple News comes preloaded on every iOS device, and like most of Apple’s apps, it remains unavailable on Android platforms. The News app places a big focus on images and quick-loading videos, and publications such as The New York Times and National Geographic have partnered with the company to make their content readily available. You can also follow trends or individual topics, ranging from politics to niche topics.

Apple News Review

Apple News is an app that gives users unprecedented access to some of the biggest newspapers and magazines around the globe. It includes hundreds of magazines and newspapers.

What do we like about Apple News?

You may access hundreds of periodicals and newspapers through Apple News, a news subscription service, including TIME, The New Yorker, The Wall Street Journal, Bon Appetit, People, and Cosmopolitan. Additionally, you will receive digital versions of the print magazines, allowing you to browse through one.

What skills does it improve?

For commuters who want to hear some lengthy stories while driving to work, you may also listen to several stories in audiobook format. More personalised recommendations for stories relevant to your interests are given to you as you read more on the app. In addition, Apple News provides customised local news based on your location.

What age is it appropriate for?

Apple News is appropriate for all ages.

Is Apple News free?

Apple News can be easily accessed on all iOS devices.

Is Apple News easy to use?

The app's design exemplifies Apple: it is sleek, clean, and straightforward. The app is simple to use, and if there are any publications you're particularly interested in, you can subscribe to them to receive push notifications about the top headlines and items you'll probably want to read later.

How will students benefit?

Various news sources, blogs, breaking news, video content, magazines, and newspapers are all combined into one stream by the Apple News app. The news feed, which is categorised by topic and publisher, allows users to follow different publications so that they appear in it.

The content in Apple's news app is initially based on well-known news sources and publications. You need to follow a few of your preferred publishers and subjects in order to start seeing curation. You can indicate your relevance to an article by liking it or disliking it to see fewer articles on that topic or channel.

To access the share sheet, press and hold an article in the Today view. From there, you may carry out other actions like banning channels or reporting spam or inaccurate news. Similar principles apply to the share sheet seen within articles.

What can Apple News improve on?

Apple News does well as a discovery app, but not well enough to be searchable. Although there is a sizable number of newspapers with paywalls available through Apple News+, it obviously does not include all of them.

How much does Apple News cost?

Although Apple News costs $9.99 a month, it is always available for free. You will continue to receive stories that are specifically chosen for you, regional news, safe reading, and an audio summary of the most important headlines. However, you won't have access to the additional improvements Apple News provides, along with the newspapers and publications that generally have a paywall. 

Final thoughts

In addition to using "on-device intelligence" to suggest stories, Apple News improves itself based on your interests. Advertisers and publishers cannot follow you using Apple News since it only has access to your data with your specific consent.

Check out the suggested readings in your Today stream in the Apple News app, including complete magazine issues if you have a subscription. Your favourite publications' most recent issues are immediately downloaded.
