As usual, Apple is touting its design of the new app and service and admittedly they look great on both iPhone and iPad.

Apple announced its new Apple News+ platform which will bring over 300 magazines to your Apple devices. Apple News+ will work with the existing Apple News app but will cost you a monthly fee of US$9.99 which includes Family Sharing so you can share with multiple accounts.

This new feature will be available in the United States and Canada. Some of the premium magazines and newspapers included are Vogue, National Geographic Magazine, People, ELLE, The Wall Street Journal and Los Angeles Times.

“We’re committed to supporting quality journalism, and with Apple News+, we want to celebrate the great work being done by magazines and news outlets,” said Lauren Kern, editor-in-chief of Apple News. “We think the breadth and quality of publications within Apple News+ will encourage more people to discover stories and titles they may never have come across before.”

The nice thing about this subscription is you have access to all of these publications for the monthly fee. Apple is correct that it would cost you a lot more to buy each publication outright, even if you’re only reading three or four of the offerings.

The new service is available today in the US for US$9.99 a month and in Canada for CA$12.99 a month. Customers can sign up for a free one-month trial, and the plan automatically renews after the trial ends. To sign up for the service, customers must update to iOS 12.2 or macOS 10.14.4. Through Family Sharing, up to six family members can share the subscription. Apple News+ will be available in the UK and Australia later this year.
