iOS 13.6 Beta Saves Your Reading Position in Apple News Articles
The iOS 13.6 beta, which is currently in testing, introduces an Apple News feature that's designed to save your place in an article when you start reading something and then exit out of the article or the app.
In iOS 13.5.1 and earlier, if you exit out of an article while reading it and then attempt to return to that same article later, the Apple News app automatically starts back at the beginning of the article. In iOS 13.6, it opens back up to the place that you left off so you don't need to scroll down to find the portion of the article you were last reading.
As noted on the MacRumors forums, it takes about thirty seconds for the Apple News app to register and save your position in an article before it's safe to exit out. This isn't a feature that's needed for short articles that you read right away, but for longer content, such as Apple News+ magazine articles, it's a welcome change.
The iOS 13.6 update also appears to be laying the groundwork for an Apple News+ audio feature that will see Apple offering audio versions of some Apple News stories. Audio is not enabled at this time, but it looks like it's a feature Apple plans to launch in the near future.
Along with these Apple News changes, iOS 13.6 includes a toggle that offers more granular control over the downloading and installing of iOS updates and it adds a new Symptoms section to the Health app.
iOS 13.6 is in beta testing and is limited to developers and public beta testers at this time, but the new features will be available to everyone when it sees a public release.
