the new premium news service gives you unrestricted access to the and for more than 300 magazines and some newspapers, and includes many features to help you find items that interest you.
The Premium Subscription Service is available in the US on iOS 1
This subscription gives you unlimited access to hundreds of publications. – including Time, Vanity Fair, Rolling Stone, Illustrated Sports, National Geographic, Wired, Skimm, Vultures, The Los Angeles Times and The Wall Street Journal – all from the Apple News app.
In addition to the US, News Plus is available in Canada, with about 30 English and French-language Canadian magazines and the Toronto Star newspaper. The premium service will be launched later this year in Australia, the UK and Europe, Apple said. ($ 9.99 converted to about £ 7.50 or $ 14.)
I downloaded the new service and it was easy to set up on an iPhone and a Mac. You can also easily find what you are looking for by either browsing the catalog or leafing through topic-specific tabs that range from business to gardening. At the top of the app.
You can read the monthly price if, like me, you subscribe to more than one publication. I pay for the digital version of several newspapers, get a physical paper every day, and subscribe to three or four more weekly magazines. It adds up: Monthly access to the Washington Post costs $ 3.99 on an Amazon Prime account. For example, a basic digital subscription to the New York Times costs $ 15 per month, and access to The New Yorker's digital edition costs $ 8.33 per month.
And it's not just about saving money. It's convenient to be able to manage all my subscriptions in one place instead of linking all subscriptions to the publications sites to the News app.

2. Searching the Catalog of Publications
Subscribing to News Plus gives you unrestricted access to all magazines and newspapers in the plan. You can browse the catalog to see the entire collection and then tap a magazine cover to display the table of contents if the magazine has one – not all. Publishers can also create an animated magazine cover that gives an appealing live photo look. I love how the animated covers look, but I only saw a few of National Geographic and the Cut as I searched the collection.
To enter the app, tap the Browse Catalog tab to see all the latest publications. Magazines are sorted alphabetically, starting with ABC Soaps in Depth. News Plus splits the catalog into two parts, with the publications from A to M displayed on one tab and from N to Z on another tab. [Aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaqe7e7aaaaaaaaq/e7/724×0/9/4/4/9/7/4/4/4/4/4/4/4/4/4/4/4/4/4/4/4/4/4/4/4/4/4/4/4/4/4/4/4/4/4/4/4/4/”/>
The tabs above will take you to magazines and articles that you may be interested in are.
. 3 How to read a magazine
Tap on a magazine to start reading. For non-indexed journals, page through the pages by tapping the Next arrow in the lower-right corner of the page.
If you have a table of contents, scroll down from the cover to see the table of contents, and then tap to navigate to a story.
. 5 How to Find Curated Content
Scroll down the main page to see magazines and articles highlighted by Apple. Selections I saw browsing included a Rolling Stone article on Game of Thrones, travel tips, and a selection of news from the worlds of business, entertainment, and science.
. 7 How to Find the Newspapers
You can search for newspapers at the top of the Browse tab of the catalog, but there are none. To find the Wall Street Journal and the Los Angeles Times instead, scroll down My Magazine and other highlighted content until you find The Journal articles. Scroll on and you can come to the highlights of the Times. (One day we found Times articles, the next day we did not.) To see all that's happening in News Plus that day, open an article and tap the newspaper name at the top of the screen to see the news display available information
