Alongside the release of iOS 13.1.2 and iPadOS 13.1.2 today, Apple has expanded its pay-monthly Apple News+ magazine and newspaper subscription service to users in the UK and Australia, offering an initial month-free trial of the service prior to charging £9.99 (UK)/$14.99 (Australia).
The Apple Post was able to exclusively confirm that Apple was readying to expand Apple News+, with users running the latest iOS 13.1 beta reporting seeing banners for the service within the News app, and Apple’s website updating to show the service was “Coming Soon”.
Apple News+ launched in the U.S. and Canada at the beginning of the year, with Apple at the time promising an expansion to Australia and the U.K. “later this year.” The service allows users to gain access to hundreds of magazines and premium digital publishers for one singular monthly fee.
Available magazines and publications in the UK include The Times and The Sunday Times, Cosmopolitan UK, Elle UK, Esquire UK, FourFourTwo, Empire, Hello!, Cyclist and Grazia, plus US-based newspapers and magazines like The Wall Street Journal, Bloomberg Businessweek, National Geographic, Rolling Stone, Vox and more.
Magazines and publications in Australia include The Australian, The Daily Telegraph, Herald Sun, The Courier Mail, The Advertiser, Vogue, Australian Women’s Health, Elle, The Australian Women’s Weekly, Harper’s Bazaar Australia, GQ, Australian Men’s Health, Delicious and Australian Geographic, plus US and UK-based newspapers and magazines.
Users can subscribe to the service within the News app on iOS or iPadOS.
