Apple has officially launched its latest subscription service, Apple News+ in Australia. Giving subscribers access to hundreds of magazines and leading newspapers. Including Vogue, Australian Geographic, The Advertiser, The Daily Telegraph, and more. All designed for iPhone, iPad, and Mac at a monthly price of A$14.99
Apple News+ was one of three new subscription services Apple unveiled back in March. Apple TV+ (launching November), Apple Arcade (now available), and Apple News+. And is a monthly subscription service within the Apple News app – on iPhone, Mac, and the iPad.
Much of the news within the Apple News app remains free. However, with a subscription to Apple News+, subscribers have access to hundreds of local and international magazines. Plus articles from leading news publishers.
Most magazines have been formatted and designed specifically for the iPhone, Mac, and iPad. Including animated covers, bold typography, photos and videos, animations, and more. And when you begin to read a magazine you can pick up reading from where you left on later – or on another device.
