How To Save Your Apple News Reading Position

Apple News isn’t too popular among iPhone users and one of the reason could be the fact that there is no way to save your reading progress. If you attempt to read a 15,000-word-long New Yorker magazine article on your iOS device, there is a high chance that you’ll have to also reply to some texts and perform other tasks in the same time. However, this will cause you to lose your reading position and you’ll have to start scrolling again when you want to resume reading.

A breakthrough is finally provided starting with iOS 13.6. The upcoming software update will allow you to continue Apple News articles from where you left off. This way you don’t need to waste anymore time with scrolling and struggling to find the paragraph you were last reading. Read on to find out how this works.

How To Save Apple News Reading Position

There are two requirements to get your reading progress tracked and saved by Apple News:
1. Update To iOS 13.6 First make sure that your iPhone or iPad are updated to iOS 13.6 (not released yet), respectively iPadOS 13.6 (beta testing stage). Once the new feature is updated, you only need to fulfill step 2.
2. The 30 Seconds Buffer Apple News is configured to automatically save your reading progress every 30 seconds. This means that you have to read an article for at least 30 seconds to get a reading position saved!

Fact: The new Apple News reading position feature isn’t the only change included in iOS 13.6. Beta tests have surfaced an Apple News+ Audio icon in the code of the upcoming software update. A precious hint that exposes Apple’s plans to provide audio versions of select Apple News stories. It’s not clear though if this new feature will catch the iOS 13.6 release, which is expected in the upcoming days.
