As we have discussed earlier, Apple News Plus, is the premium news service from Apple. But with the updated News Plus Apple focuses on providing it’s users with not only the best of the news as well as the best of the magazines.
Often we want to read a magazine but we need to buy it from the store or online, now with Apple News Plus, no need. You can just get the subscription and get access to premium news papers and premium magazines right from your iPhone or iPad or Mac.
Apple News Plus also will be showing news from the Los Angeles Times News Paper and The Wall Street Journal. Along with that, some other sources like TechCrunch are also included.
There is a For You section, which uses the smart algorithm for analysing the type of news and magazines you like. With regards to which, it shall provide you suggestions for news headlines and which magazine to read next. Also, this entire process takes place on your individual device and not Apple Servers. Because of which Apple doesn’t get to know what you’re reading.
And Apple was good enough to allow Family Sharing for the Apple News Plus subscription at no additional cost.
Apple News Plus Price
The price for the monthly Apple News Plus subscription is $9.99 per month. Apple claims that in-case subscribes to all the available magazines and newspapers individually, you would end up paying $8,000. While with Apple News Plus you will be paying only $119.88 per annum.
