Apple News+ launched overseas earlier this year, with the promise that it would be coming to Australia at some point.
It’s now arrived. This is how much it will cost you in Australia.
Australia is the third country in the world to get Apple News+, a magazine and newspaper subscription service that provides users with access to hundreds of publications digitally.
In addition to international titles such as The Wall Street Journal, Rolling Stone and National Geographic the service includes a slew of Australian publications like Australian Women’s Health, Vogue, Delicious and multiple News Corp titles.
Curated articles chosen by Apple News editors are also included.
It also supports family sharing, which means that up to six family members can share a single subscription. It will work on any Apple device that has iOS 12.2/MacOS 10.14.4 or higher.
We’re hoping that the service has improved since it initially launched in the U.S. Our New York team had issues with the reading and browsing experience back in April, referring to the the service as “incomplete” and “a terror to use”.
We’ll be giving the service a go ourselves and will report back. Fingers crossed that an extra six months has given Apple enough time to refine the platform.
Apple News+ launches today in Australia and will cost $14.99. You can sign up for a one month free trial, just keep in mind that it will auto renew and charge you if you don’t cancel it.
