Apple News+ was launched in March this year and since has been used by a variety of publishers to showcase their covers, special issues, feature stories and more for subscribers. Now with the iOS 12.3 and macOS 10.14.5 update, released earlier this month, Apple News+ subscribers will be able to follow the publications directly from within the app catalogue.
Latest posts from subscribed titles download automatically in the app and available to read offline. Besides, Apple News+ subscribers will also be able to download individual issues within each title’s channel in the free Apple News app.
Apple News+ is currently available at $9.99 a month in USA and $12.99 a month in Canada. Currently, the first month is free on trial, and the plan will automatically renew after the trial ends unless cancelled. Users can share their subscription with up to six family members through their Family Sharing plan.
UK and Australia will be getting Apple News+ later this year. It’s also important to note that to sign up for Apple News+, users will need to update their devices to iOS 12.2 or macOS Mojave 10.14.4.
