What you need to know

  • Apple has launched a limited-time 3-month trial to Apple News+.
  • The offer is available to new subscribers only.
  • You must sign up for the offer by the end of Cyber Monday.

Apple today started a new promotion for its Apple News Plus (opens in new tab) service: a three-month free trial. Up until now, the company had only offered a one-month free trial for the service, so this is the first time we have seen a better offer for new subscribers.

The offer is, however, for a very limited amount of time. According to Macrumors, the promotional offer is only available between Black Friday and Cyber Monday, so if you are interested you will have to sign up for the trial by the end of Monday.

Apple's fine print for the offer describes it as such:

This weekend only, get a 3 month free trial of Apple News+ and enjoy full access to hundreds of magazines and leading newspapers.

You can start your three-month trial of Apple News+ through Apple's website or through the Apple News app on iPhone, iPad, iPod, or Mac. After the trial ends, the service costs $9.99 per month for up to six users (if you use Family Sharing).

This is the latest push by Apple to attain subscribers for its News+ service, which has reportedly struggled to acquire and maintain subscribers. Apple has committed to improving the service though, after hearing the input of many of the publishers on its platform.

  • I'm hoping they close this biased garbage "News" soon.
  • They might end up getting rid of News Plus, people have been reading online news for free for years so why would they start paying? The normal News app will stay though, it provides a nice reading view for sources you trust, although I won't use it at the moment as it doesn't support dark mode…
  • Hey Danny! The News app does support Dark Mode on iOS and macOS. Are you not getting that?
  • Both macOS and iOS articles load with a white background, only the initial start page is dark
