Wow, 7 more countries after all this time of the feature being out there?

Constant reminder how Apple outside of the US always feels like Apple Light.
But sure, keep charging the same or higher prices for lesser products.
Why not, if you get away with it, right?

To be fair, it's not really that helpful anyhow... the news section isn't even curated, it's just general news and the app suggestions just shows you the last few apps you used rather than the apps you use the most
