Today at its WWDC keynote, Apple announced a redesigned version of Apple News, which the company says has 60 million monthly active users and over 2,000 publications. The new Apple News includes a simpler, bolder interface similar to the Apple Music redesign. It also includes new features like subscriptions, breaking news alerts and more.

Apple News now includes subscriptions, allowing users to read news from select publications within the News app. The For You section also comes broken up into smaller sections to make it easier to follow, including a trending news section and the topics a user follows. News can also create new topic sections based on what you read. There are also featured stories hand-picked by Apple's editors.

The new app can also send breaking news alerts to a user's lock screen, allowing readers to quickly and easily get the news they need.

The new Apple News will be a part of iOS 10, which will debut in the fall.

The big titles remind me of excellent newspapers like The Sun.

This is the worst announcement that I've ever seen by them, in my opinion.

It isn't impressive, that is for sure. Allowing people to subscribe to custom feeds, would be a good feature - e.g. I don't want to see everything from the NY Times or WSJ, I want something curated by someone outside Apple.
