Apple unveils Apple News+, its monthly news subscription service
At a special event at its Cupertino campus, Apple today lifted the wraps of its revamped Apple News app, which comes with a new premium subscription service called Apple News+. This offers readers access to over 300 magazines and newspapers for a flat rate of $9.99 a month.
Available in the US and Canada to begin with, publications offered by Apple News+ include Vogue, National Geographic, People, ELLE, The Wall Street Journal and Los Angeles Times.
"We’re committed to supporting quality journalism, and with Apple News+, we want to celebrate the great work being done by magazines and news outlets," says Lauren Kern, editor-in-chief of Apple News. "We think the breadth and quality of publications within Apple News+ will encourage more people to discover stories and titles they may never have come across before."
Subscribers can access current and past issues (and individual articles) from supported magazines, and the app displays them in stylish layouts all optimized for iPhone, iPad and Mac.
Apple News+ is available today in the US for $9.99 a month and in Canada for $12.99 a month. There’s a free one-month trial, with the plan automatically renewing once the trial ends.
You’ll need to be running iOS 12.2 or macOS 10.14.4 to access it.
