How to Sign Up For an Apple News+ Subscription
Apple today unveiled its rumored premium Apple News subscription service, Apple News+. Apple News+ provides access to more than 300 magazines and a handful of paywalled news articles from sites like The Wall Street Journal all for $9.99 per month.
Signing up for an Apple News subscription can be done in the U.S. or Canada on an iPhone or iPad running iOS 12.2. Here’s how:
- Open up the Apple News App.
- Tap on the “News+” tab at the bottom of the screen.
- Tap on “Get Started.”
- Choose “Try It Free” to initiate a trial subscription. You’ll be charged $9.99 per month when the 30-day trial period ends.
- Confirm your payment with Face ID or Touch ID.
From there, you’ll have access to a new “My Magazines” section of the app where you can see featured magazines, browse the entire collection, or select from various categories like Cars, Entertainment, Food, Health, Hobbies, Lifestyle, Outdoors, and more.
There are a selection of stories that are curated by Apple’s editors and organized to highlight specific articles.
Apple News+ magazines provide animated covers and a table of contents right up top so you can select the articles that are most interesting to you.
The rest of the Apple News interface features rich, full-screen imagery and a digital-optimized reading experience for key stories.
Cancelling your Apple News+ Subscription
If you want to cancel your Apple News+ subscription so you don’t get charged $9.99 per month after your trial period ends, here’s how:
- Tap on the “Following” tab in the Apple News app.
- Tap on “Manage Subscriptions.”
- Tap on “Cancel Free Trial.”
Make sure you don’t cancel your Apple News+ subscription until you’ve finished giving the service a try because Apple says that your service ends immediately if you hit the cancel button. We recommend setting a calendar reminder to cancel before 30 days is up if you want the full trial experience.
Apple News+ content can be read on iPhone, iPad, and Mac, with iOS 12.2 or macOS 10.14.4 required. You can also sign up for an Apple News+ subscription using these same steps in the Apple New+ tab in the macOS Mojave app.
