Apple today announced that Apple News Plus, its premium news subscription service, is now available for £ 9.99 a month in the UK and $14.99 a month in Australia.
The service seems to be exactly the same as it is in the US and Canada
Earlier, it was only accessible in the United States and Canada.
While Apple highlights significant British journals such as The Times, FourFourTwo, and Empire, as well as significant Australian journals such as The Australian, The Daily Telegraph, and Australian Geographic in their press materials, US and Canadian subscribers can already access them.
Here is a Official Tweet by FourFourTwo:
Still, it’s a remarkable expansion of the service, which has had a rocky beginning. The service largely offers magazines – which makes sense, given that Apple News Plus was born out of Apple’s acquisition of Texture, a magazine-focused subscription service, but doesn’t necessarily match “news” expectations.
Apple has not announced where else the service might be expanding, but we expect other nations to be struck at some stage in the future.
Some of Apple’s other services should be more commonly available — Apple Arcade is already accessible in more than 150 nations, and Apple TV Plus will be accessible in 100 at launch.
