Apple Announces News Service, Apple News+, for $9.99/mo

Apple has just announced Apple News+, a news subscription service that offers users more than 300 magazine titles, alongside premium newspapers and digital titles in a new Apple News experience.

The company took to the stage at the It’s Showtime to announce Apple News+, which will offer unlimited access to titles such as Vogue, National Geographic Magazine, People, ELLE, The Wall Street Journal and Los Angeles Times, for $9.99 per month. The company said it would cost more than $8,000 per year to subscribe to the titles outside of the platform, representing significant savings for readers.

“Apple News+ adds an even more expansive collection of high-quality stories to the free experience of Apple News, which is the No. 1 news app and delivers current events coverage from trusted sources,” the company said in a press release.

“All Apple News users in the US, Canada, UK and Australia can continue to enjoy the free news experience within the app on iPhone, iPad and Mac, including access to Top Stories, Trending Stories and a personalised feed of articles.”

“We’re committed to supporting quality journalism, and with Apple News+, we want to celebrate the great work being done by magazines and news outlets,” added Lauren Kern, editor-in-chief of Apple News. “We think the breadth and quality of publications within Apple News+ will encourage more people to discover stories and titles they may never have come across before.”

Users can subscribe to Apple News+ today in the United States for $9.99 a month and in Canada for $12.99 a month. A one-month free trial is available in both territories, and the service will roll out to the United Kingdom and Australia later.
