A Beginner’s Guide to Apple News

Your favourite magazines and newspapers. All in one place.

Apple News

News + magazines, in one app


Read the latest news and delve into magazines you love with the Apple News app. Available in Canada for the first time, with distinct experiences for English and French, Apple News offers Top Stories that are curated by editors and refreshed throughout the day. You'll find the Apple News app on your iPhone, iPad, and Mac; if you don't see it yet, make sure you've updated your devices.

The stories you'll find in Apple News come from the best of Canadian and international publications, such as Global News, The Star, Sportsnet, The Globe and Mail, The Hockey News, La Presse, The New York Times, BBC News, and many more. Enjoy engaging, beautifully designed stories, delve into collections of must-read features, and have your favourite magazines download automatically so you can read them on the go.

While the top news and features are chosen by editors, you also have a feed that's personalized to include stories on topics of interest to you. Here's what you'll get with Apple News.

Free Press

When you open the app on your iPhone, iPad, or Mac, you’ll see Top Stories. That’s where Apple News editors highlight the most important reporting and smartest analysis from respected news organizations—and bring it to you free of charge.

Stories trending with other Apple News readers appear just below that.

You can also follow specific publications or topics (like business, fashion, music, politics, science, or sports) for a more personalized experience.

The more you read (and follow), the better the app becomes at suggesting stories based on your preferences—while always respecting your privacy.

Extra, Extra!

Once you subscribe to Apple News+, you’ll get access to more top newspapers and hundreds of magazines, including People, Maclean's, National Geographic, The Atlantic, Chatelaine, Today's Parent, Cottage Life, Vogue, Popular Science, Men's Health, and many other great titles from Canadian and international publishers. The publications you follow appear in My Magazines in the News+ tab—head there for quick access to the latest issues. Under that you’ll see a feed of individual articles and issues—both curated by editors and personalized for you.

And keep an eye out for exclusive Apple News+ extras that publishers will be adding—think animated live covers, photo galleries, and more.

Upgrade to iOS 12.2 and macOS 10.14.4 to get Apple News. Apple News+ costs $12.99 per month. Everyone gets a one-month trial for free, and six family members can enjoy access with Family Sharing—which should make dinner table conversations that much more interesting.
