Apple Highlights 'Great Feedback' Received From Hundreds of Apple News+ Publishers

While the highlight of last week's iOS 12.3 release was a revamped TV app with a new "Channels" feature, the release notes also mentioned a minor change to the Apple News+ interface that did not receive as much attention.

Ensuring the feature gains some awareness, Apple in a press release today highlighted the ability for ‌Apple News‌+ subscribers to follow publications directly from the ‌Apple News‌+ catalog view in iOS 12.3 and macOS 10.14.5. New issues from followed titles are automatically downloaded and available offline.

Apple added that it has received "a lot of great feedback from hundreds of publishers" available in ‌Apple News‌+, with quotes featured from editors of publications such as Vox, People, Harper's Bazaar, and Popular Science.

Apple's services chief Eddy Cue:

We've heard a lot of great feedback from the hundreds of publishers available in Apple News+. The latest updates to Apple News+ aim to best showcase their incredible journalism and put the most trusted news sources at readers' fingertips. Apple News+ customers are very engaged readers, with most visiting the News app daily. Hundreds of people at Apple, across editorial, engineering, marketing and design teams, are working to make Apple News+ the best experience for people who love reading their favorite titles and discovering new stories.

The feedback from editors can be read on the Apple Newsroom.

Here's my feedback, please stop putting the News Plus articles all over my news feed. I have no interest in subscribing and these ads are very annoying.

If you agree please submit feedback to apple to remove it https://www.apple.com/feedback/ (there is no News app feedback section, so just use iPhone or iPad feature feedback) ('https://www.apple.com/feedback/')
