Check Out iOS 10's Revamped Apple News App

One of the apps that's getting a redesign in iOS 10 is Apple News, Apple's dedicated news reading app that first came out in 2015 as part of iOS 9. Apple News aggregates stories from several sources into one mobile-friendly format for reading on iOS devices, allowing users to find content based around their interests.

In iOS 10, Apple News features a bolder, simpler interface that puts content front and center. The "For You" section filled with customized picks has been broken up into smaller topic-based sections with improved organization to make it easier to keep up with incoming stories.

"For You" features all of the topics a user follows along with "Trending News," featuring current popular stories, and "Featured News," a section with news suggestions hand-picked by Apple's editors. There are easier tools for sharing, liking, and disliking news stories, accessible by swiping to the left or the right on the screen.

In addition to these design changes, Apple News will now send notifications to users whenever there's a must-read breaking news story, and Apple has added support for subscription-based publications so you can read content from paid subscription-based sites like The Wall Street Journal right alongside free content. The revamped Apple News app will be available in the fall when iOS 10 launches.

Even if Apple had a 1,000% increase in people using the News App; it still would only amount to 33 people.

Still surprised that Apple didn't include a News app for macOS Sierra. Would've made that update a bit more interesting

This is never taking off unless 100% of the articles are embedded into the app and don't open up another webpage which most links do

I stopped using Flipboard when Apple released News App. Flipboard was great before they started tracking your every move and wanting more and more info from you like emails and your Facebook accounts they turned out to be another Google. Apple News gives me the same content and works the same without selling my personal info.

Nice, but according to Apple the only countries that can be informed about the News are US, UK and Australia.
