    "I've been reading a lot about Costa Rica recently. While I'm not a regular reader of Marie Clare, News Plus is recommending an article
    about it, which is really smart."
  • Shara Tibken 3/25/2019 5:17:37 PM
    We're seeing what articles look like on an iPhone versus an iPad
  • Connie Guglielmo 3/25/2019 5:17:45 PM
  • Shara Tibken 3/25/2019 5:17:50 PM
    Basically, it's just bigger
  • Shara Tibken 3/25/2019 5:18:02 PM
    "The iPad really shows off great photography like this.
  • Shara Tibken 3/25/2019 5:18:27 PM
    "The best mobile magazine experience ever."
  • joan.solsman 3/25/2019 5:18:28 PM
    Apple is giving a lot of emphasis on the content its publisher partners are contributing and how Apple News+ will show it off. I'm curious to hear about how Apple is going to algorithmically tailor suggested articles for you
  • Shara Tibken 3/25/2019 5:18:36 PM
    Roger is now back up (sorry, I can't remember his last name)
  • Shara Tibken 3/25/2019 5:19:04 PM
    "Whether you like to read whole issues cover to cover or individual articles, Apple News Plus is the best way" to read magazines on your device
  • Shara Tibken 3/25/2019 5:19:21 PM
    There are other publications, TheSkimm, The Highlight by Vox, Vulture, etc.
  • Shara Tibken 3/25/2019 5:19:29 PM
    The LA Times is also in it
  • Connie Guglielmo 3/25/2019 5:19:34 PM
  • Shara Tibken 3/25/2019 5:19:36 PM
    And The Wall Street Journal, which was earlier reported
  • Connie Guglielmo 3/25/2019 5:19:44 PM
  • Shara Tibken 3/25/2019 5:19:50 PM
    "Of course Apple News Plus is built on a foundation of expert curation."
  • Shara Tibken 3/25/2019 5:20:15 PM
    "When we announced Apple News, we told you we designed it to be private from the ground up ... that's even more important today."

    Apple News uses on-device intelligence to make recommendations. It doesn't know what you read, and it doesn't allow advertisers to track you
  • Shara Tibken 3/25/2019 5:20:39 PM
    Lots of cheers for that remark
  • Shara Tibken 3/25/2019 5:20:49 PM
    "What you read about in Apple News will not follow you across the web."
  • Connie Guglielmo 3/25/2019 5:21:02 PM
  • joan.solsman 3/25/2019 5:21:03 PM
    This idea of on-device intelligence to personalize your articles is something that is getting buzzy among some people in the Valley, with startups like Canopy trying to do it too

    If you were to subscribe to each of these individually, it would costs you over $800 a year. But Apple News Plus is $9.99 a month.
  • Shara Tibken 3/25/2019 5:21:34 PM
    There's also family sharing, which costs nothing extra
  • Connie Guglielmo 3/25/2019 5:21:37 PM
  • joan.solsman 3/25/2019 5:21:40 PM
    Roger Wosner talks up how Apple won't share your data with advertisers, which -- you know -- would never happen anyway when your service doesn't have advertising...
  • Shara Tibken 3/25/2019 5:21:50 PM
    "Each person in your family gets full access to that incredible catalog" on their own devices, with their own recommendations."
  • joan.solsman 3/25/2019 5:21:54 PM
    How much data will Apple share with its publishing partners, though?
  • Shara Tibken 3/25/2019 5:22:05 PM
    It's available today. Just have to download today's iOS and MacOS updates. the first month is free
