Apple Tech Talk Joins Apple News

We are very proud to announce that Apple Tech Talk is now available as its own channel in the Apple News app.

What is Apple News?

Apple News IconLaunched in iOS 9, Apple News replaced the Newsstand app which acted more like a hub to collect multiple news apps. Apple News is your one stop for the subjects and articles that are of interest to you.  The articles include rich multimedia, such as galleries, videos, and animations. You can explore topics from a variety of sources and add favorites to get the news that you want. You can also save articles to read later—online or offline.

The Apple News app lets you add the topics and channels, many of which are free, that interest you from the Explore section to your Favorites. This helps News decide what type of stories to show you in For You.

There is also a Search function in the app to allow you to find topics or specific channels that interest you.

To see a list of the channels and topics that you follow, tap Favorites.  You can also sort Favorites by name, recently visited, or most visited. Just tap Favorites at the top of the screen, then choose how you want them sorted.

Beginning with iOS 10, you can subscribe to a channel and get full access to premium stories from select publications you subscribe to, both in Apple News and the publisher’s app.  If you subscribe to a channel, there’s a separate section in Favorites for your subscriptions.

The Apple News app also provides top stories of the day, trending stories that are popular with other News readers, and Featured Stories selected by Apple editors.

Apple News now also appears as a widget in Notification Center, so your top stories and latest news is never more than a swipe away.

You can even allow News to send you push notifications.  The first time you open the app it will ask you if you want them. You can always edit these notifications later, and to delete some or add new ones, tap “Favorites” on the bottom in News, then tap the icon that looks like a bell in the upper left corner.

It’s a great way to stay informed without the need to check multiple apps or jump on line.
