Apple unveils its magazine reading service News+, don't expect anything revolutionary
It is official: Apple News goes to a whole new level by adding access to more than 300 publications via a (somewhat) new service called Apple News+. This is a subscription service "that brings together over 300 popular magazines, leading newspapers and digital publishers into a beautiful, convenient and curated experience."
Without further ado, these are the highlights of the new Apple News+ service:
- Access to current and past issues and articles from a wide range of magazines, such as National Geographic, New York Magazine, InStyle, The New Yorker, TIME, Sports Illustrated, and so on. About 300 magazines with a yearly subscription value of over US$8,000.
- The first month is free, then the subscription price is US$9.99 a month. Family sharing is available at no extra charge for up to six family members.
- Apple News and Apple News+ also available in Canada in both English and French for C$12.99.
- Australia and the UK to follow later this year.
Those interested can already sign up for a free one-month trial. The plan will automatically renew at the end of this trial period. To sign up for Apple News+, the customers must update to iOS 12.2 or macOS 10.14.4.
