Apple News+ Get 300 Magazines for $9.99 a Month

Apple News Plus Magazines on iPad

The advancement of technology demands smartness in equipment and services and in every domain. Smart news where news follower gets news of about or what they want to listen will build a great deal of sophistication in news technology. Apple with this in mind took a galloping lap to mark its significance in this domain with style.

Apple News+:

Apple has just unveiled its new premium News service featuring premium newspaper and magazines for $9.99 a month. The service is branded as News+ and is available today with the release of the new iOS and macOS software updates. 

$9.99 includes family sharing so you can share with up to six Family members at no extra cost. 

The service is integrated directly into the News app and features magazines from National Geographic, Popular Science, New Yorker, Vogue, Rolling Stone and more. Apple News+ was officially announced earlier today, allowing users to pay $9.99 per month for access to 300 magazines and select newspapers. One of those newspapers is The Wall Street Journal, but there are a few details worth noting.

Apple has released the public version of iOS 12.2, which includes the launch of the company’s brand new Apple News+ subscription service for magazines. The update, which is available for all eligible iPhone, iPads, and the iPod touch, includes a bevy of new changes, features, and enhancements. Needless to say, iOS 12.2 is a massive update, and likely the last big update before iOS 13 launches in beta later this year.

Watch our hands-on video walkthrough and we step through all of the new changes and features in iOS 12.2. It appears these changes have caused an issue somewhere in the pipes as obviously repeated crashing is not a good thing. Some users also experienced trouble activating their subscription. At its keynote yesterday, Apple boasted that News is the #1 most-used news app in the world.

There are no known workarounds at this time other than to wait for Apple to release the patch. It appears to affect all customers and device models, although it may be limited to US and Canada; the regions that have the Apple News+ tab available. 

How Apple News+ Works:

The app works by pulling in news stories from the web through RSS/Atom feeds or through the Apple News Format. Apple News provides coverage of current events, that is curated by editors, and is personalized for you.

Readers can follow their favorite topics, favorite publications, and even subscribe to push notification for breaking news alerts.

Apple News+ Features:

The News+ service will be its own tab in the existing News app and won’t interrupt the free section, the demo showed. Magazines can be downloaded automatically for offline reading. The News+ tab features access to magazine cover stories, new issues, and individual articles. Magazine creators are tweaking their issues depending on whether the story is read on an iPhone or the bigger iPad screen. 

The magazine bundle is part of a collection of new services Apple is rolling out as it seeks to boost revenue from sources other than the iPhone. The magazine service is based on an application called Texture, which Apple acquired about a year ago. 

Texture had agreements with more than 200 magazines. Some publishers have reportedly balked at the terms Apple offered to be part of the magazine bundle.

Apple News - Historic Significance:

Apple launched a News app in 2015, letting users follow topics that suit their interest, subscribe to individual publications and read selected articles for free. Apple has an internal team that decides which news stories are shown to users. The News app was not Apple’s first foray into the business, however. It followed Newsstand in 2011 that allowed people to download and display digital versions of newspapers and magazines on their mobile devices.
