Apple on Monday launched their Apple News+ service in the United Kingdom, providing access to around 150 publications for £9.99 per month. The subscription service is available now, via the “News+” tab in the Apple News app on the iPhone, iPad, and Mac.
Subscriptions provide access to past and current issues of U.K.-focused magazines and newspapers, including Esquire, Empire, Hello!, The Times, and many others. U.K. subscribers will also have access to U.S. publications, such as the Wall Street Journal.
The service has also gone live in Australia, bringing the number of countries where Apple News+ is available to a massive 4 countries. (The United States, Canada, Australia, and the United Kingdom.)
Australian readers can enjoy numerous Australian-centric publications, including The Australian, The Daily Telegraph, Herald Sun, The Courier Mail, The Advertiser, Vogue, and The Australian Women’s Weekly.
Users in the UK and Australia can enjoy a 1-month trial of Apple News+. The subscription automatically renews for £9.99/$14.99 AUD per month unless cancelled by the subscriber.
Apple News+ debuted in the U.S. back in March to a rather reserved reception. Many have criticized the service as confusing for readers, and it has also been criticized for its limited selection of publications. Apple has responded to such criticism by making improvements to the app, attempting to make it more obvious on how to follow a publication, download issues for later reading, and how to offer the catalog of News+ content.
