The Apple News app was launched in iOS 9 in the United States. Since then, it has been released in Canada, Australia, and the United Kingdom. With iOS 10, it saw a major redesign with a focus on the For You tab. The iOS 10 update also brought paid subscriptions into the app for the first time. Publishers could opt-in to sell paywalled content through the App Store. In macOS Mojave, the app was ported to the Mac as a Marzipan application.

The app works by pulling in news stories from the web through RSS/Atom feeds or through the Apple News Format.

The Apple News app provides coverage of current events, that is curated by editors, and is personalized for you. Readers can follow their favorite topics, favorite publications, and even subscribe to push notification for breaking news alerts.

The service is integrated directly into the News app and features magazines from National Geographic, Popular Science, New Yorker, Vogue, Rolling Stone and more. Apple News+ will also include content from the Los Angeles Times and the Wall Street Journal.
