Using the iOS News App

The News app is a new app from Apple for the iPad and iPhone that comes with iOS 9. It aggregates news articles from channels and topics that you choose and shows them in a format that is generally more readable than the web. You can customize your sources, save favorites and view your history.

    In the old 8. app, why are there some notification badges that just don’t turn off, no matter how much you update each of the mags / feeds, etc. and does IOS 9 version do the same thing?

      Not sure what you mean as there was no iOS 8 version of this app. It is new as of iOS 9. Perhaps you were using a third party app? I haven’t observed any badge issues with the News app.

    Is ‘News’ for US version only? – I can’t find on my Norwegian iOS9-devices.

        Ditto for Australia. Any indication on release dates for International versions? And what happens if a US-based user comes to visit us? Can they still use this in Australia?

          I believe it is based on your language settings, or possibly your iCloud account location. So someone in the US would be able to use it anywhere. As for release dates, Apple never seems to announce those in advance. Plenty of similar third-party apps if you want something like this.

    Is “News” available on the iMac too or limited to IOS devices?

      4 years ago

      It is an iOS 9 app. So no Mac version. I suppose if it does well, like iBooks, then Apple may make a Mac version.
