Even better, previous subscribers of Apple News+ that have since cancelled the service can still grab three months of free service through the offer at Best Buy.

After the three or four months of free service is over, Apple will automatically begin charging you $9.99 per month for the service, so remember to set a reminder if you don't plan to keep it after the promotional period.

With all of the new features just announced, now is a great time to enjoy Apple News+ for free for awhile and check out the newest that the service has to offer.
