apple news iconApple News appears to be running into problems this morning, with social media chatter indicating the service is down for many users.

Apple's System Status page isn't reporting issues with its News service, but launching the iOS app and tapping the Today tab is throwing up a "Feed Unavailable" message for many users. However, other sections of the app do appear to be functioning.

MacRumors was able to replicate the behavior on iPhone and iPad, but the service appears to be working when accessed through the macOS app, at least in the United Kingdom.

According to Downdetector, the problem is mainly being reported by users in the United States and the United Kingdom. We'll update this article when the situation changes.


Update: ‌Apple News‌ appears to have shaken off its network issues and resumed normal service later in the day.

If a tree falls in a forest and no one is around to hear it, does it make a sound?

Apple News is total failure anyway. It is nearly useless. They keep the same stories front and center for days and even weeks on end. Don't those morons realize that it is only News (that is, new information) for a brief moment in time, perhaps a few hours. And they push all kinds of stupid fluff stories int it. That fluff is human interest garbage, entertainment crap, etc. It isn't news! Put that on E! and put news stories in Apple News. And I’m quite tired of stories that are important but blocked because I don't have the Apple+ subscription. Totally separate those two Apple!
