What is Apple News +?
If you own an Apple device, you’re probably familiar with Apple News, a news aggregator app designed for the Apple ecosystem, accessible on iPhone, iPad, or Mac. While it offers plenty of articles for free, especially the latest news, trends, and local news, Apple News also offers paid content that requires an Apple News + subscription to access it. Do you remember the texture? Apple acquired it in 2018 and turned it into News +, giving readers access to an unprecedented volume of magazine issues, including back issues from 2018. Dubbed the “Netflix of magazines,” Apple News + offers unlimited access to over 300 magazines, newspapers and publications for a subscription of $ 12.99 per month after a free one-month trial. The subscription can be shared between a family of up to six people using the family sharing feature.
