I’ve been using Apple News Plus for a while now and honestly it’s not that great.
The only real appeal is that I have access to dozens and dozens of magazines and newspapers, but navigating to what I want to read and discover is so annoying and not fun that I wouldn’t mind paying extra to have a real newspaper or magazine in my hand.

Nope.

Free trials like these, the company hopes that people will forget to cancel their free trial and start paying after the free period is over.
