How do you share the Apple News articles that delight — or frustrate! — you the most? With gestures, taps, or 3D Touch!

Apple News isn't just about reading all about what's happening, it's about sharing what matters most to you with the people that matter most. It could be a magazine feature that makes you laugh or breaks your heart, breaking news that changes your worldview or sends you into a rage, or it could simply be something you know someone else cares about, even if you don't.
