    "Our editors pick the top stories every day so you can stay on top of important news."
  • Shara Tibken 3/25/2019 5:08:12 PM

    Funny how the news app that is baked into the iPhone UI right next to your homescreen managed to become No. 1, right?!

    "Probably like many of you, I love the feeling of being at the newsstand. ... We want them all but we might be able to get only 1 or 2. But what if we could have them all. Today we're going to do just that. We're bringing magazines to Apple News."

    Apple News Plus?
  • Shara Tibken 3/25/2019 5:10:08 PM
    Time for a video "about the power of journalism and its cultural impact."
  • joan.solsman 3/25/2019 5:10:30 PM
    Apple News+ is an interesting branding choice -- Disney has already established it as its own kind of language with ESPN+ and the forthcoming Disney+ Netflix-like service launching later this year
  • Connie Guglielmo 3/25/2019 5:10:45 PM
  • Shara Tibken 3/25/2019 5:10:59 PM

    Apple's sizzle reel of pretty epic magazine photojournalism does have an impact -- it's a pretty solid way to sell yourself when you've got some of the most compelling images today as your pitch
  • Shara Tibken 3/25/2019 5:12:28 PM
    We're seeing images of Wired, The Wall Street Journal, People, Conde Nast Traveler, etc
  • Shara Tibken 3/25/2019 5:12:33 PM
    They'll all be part of Apple News Plus

    You get the latest magazines further down in the app. "We've created the live cover."
  • Shara Tibken 3/25/2019 5:15:04 PM
    So for a National Geographic cover, it shows an aerial view of Sydney. When you tap on the cover, you're taken to the table of contents

    "The place to explore all magazines is the News Plus tab."
