Apple News+ Free For 3 Months
Secondly, you can only grab 3 months free Apple News+ membership only if you’re a new subscriber. Similar, to the free Apple Music trials, this deals is only available if you haven’t tried Apple News+ in the past.
How To Get Apple News+ Free For 3 Months
- Open the News app on your iPhone, iPad or Mac.
- Tap on News+ available in the bottom menu.
- Go for Get Started and follow the on-screen prompts to subscribe to Apple News+.
Fact: The $9.99/month plan will begin renewing automatically after the trial period ends. You can cancel anytime before the free trial ends to avoid any charges, if you’re not satisfied with the Apple News+ membership.
Apple News Not Working?
Is the News app not showing any stories? News feed isn’t updating? Get Started button is stuck on loading? In most cases, this happens when you live in a location where Apple News isn’t supported. In some cases, especially if you’re running an iOS beta version, the News app is available although it shouldn’t.
So, if you live outside of the US, UK, Canada or Australia, it’s normal for Apple News not to work. If this issue happens as you try to browse from a supported country, try to reinstall the News app:
Browse for Settings -> General -> iPhone Storage -> News -> Offload App -> Reinstall.
Apple News+ Is Still Showing Ads!
You’ve subscribed to Apple News+ but the app is still displaying ads? Unfortunately, there is nothing that you can do about it.
Apple is allowing publishers to display ads, to allow them to roundup earnings and keep the Apple News+ membership costs low. This isn’t ideal, and having ads shown on a paid service is surprising indeed.
Tip: The best that you can do about it is to Turn personalized ads Off. At least this way you won’t be targeted by the ads and reduce the amount of distraction!
