Apple to Tweak News Plus Subscription App to Appease Publishers
Publishers report “underwhelming” performance in two months following free trial.
Despite a lot of fanfare and publicity, Apple News +, the news and magazine subscription service launched by Apple in March, isn’t as popular as anticipated. As a result, Apple is planning tweaks to the three-monthly subscription service, reports Business Insider. Apple News + is the subscription component of the free Apple News app. The News + subscription is a revamped version of Texture, the magazine subscription app service that Apple acquired last year. After a free one-month trial, News + subscribers can access more than 300 publications for $9.99 a month in the U.S. and $12.99 a month in Canada.
