- Apple News local has expanded to three new cities in the United States.
- Local news coverage is now available in Charlotte, Miami, and Washington D.C.
If you live in one of three lucky cities, you're about to get better news coverage from Apple News.
Today, the company announced that it is expanding its local news coverage to three additional cities in the United States:
- Charlotte, North Carolina
- Miami, Florida
- Washington, D.C.
Local publishers like the Charlotte Observer, the Miami Herald, and the Washington Post will power the local news sections that readers access in the Apple News app.
Lauren Kern, editor-in-chief of Apple News, said that the company is continuing its expansion into hyper-local news coverage because "access to trusted local news is critical for communities."
Apple News local experiences are already available in the Bay Area, Houston, Los Angeles, New York, San Francisco, Sacramento, San Antonio, and San Diego. The company says that it will continue to add more and more local publications and local news coverage that is customized by the Apple News Editors.
Apple News local collections are available to all Apple News users. Users can also upgrade to Apple News+ for $9.99 per month or get it included as part of the Apple One Premier tier of the company's subscription bundle service.
