Apple News comes to the UK with iOS 9.1


As part of iOS 9, Apple introduced its own news curation app called News (an unimaginative name, but it's straight to the point at least). Like Flipboard, Google Play Newsstand and others, it's designed to collect the best online journalism and present it in a simpler, more beautiful way for readers. Apple device owners in the US were able to check it out straightaway, but so far device owners in the UK have been left out in the cold. Well, that's all changing today. iOS 9.1 is rolling out now and, as expected, it comes bundled with a tweaked Apple News app for Brits featuring some UK-specific journalism.

Right now, you can access feeds from BBC News, Conde Nast, The Economist, Financial Times, The Guardian, Haymarket, Hearst, Immediate Media, Sky News, The Sun, The Telegraph, Time Inc., The Times and Trinity Mirror, with more set to join the list in the future. While it's no replacement for an RSS reader like Feedly, it could be worth checking out if you like to skim the headlines and haven't already adopted a third-party alternative.
