You can now publish your Squarespace blog to Apple News

Website building service Squarespace has announced a new integration with Apple News. With this integration, Squarespace customers can easily publish their blog in Apple News Format.

From Squarespace (opens in new tab):

This integration is available to everyone, whether you're an individual, a publication, a company, or an artist. Better still, you can create your very own branded Apple News channel that is discoverable in-app. So whatever your website is about, it's now easier than ever to grow and engage your audience from anywhere.

You'll need to sign up for Apple's New Publisher program and get Apple News API credentials in order to take advantage of the integration. Currently, Squarespace allows the following types of content to be published to Apple News:

  • Images and Galleries
  • Videos
  • Audio
  • Text
  • Markdown
  • Twitter and Instagram embedded content
  • A link back to your Squarespace site

Squarespace says that it will offer additional content publishing options for Apple News soon.

  • But since we don't have Apple news in Canada, I won't be able to see what I publish - brilliant, isn't it.... I don't want to use workarounds to get access to Apple news - I want it working proper... Sent from the iMore App
  • This is awesome! Although building my site and not using Squarespace it does make the option more appealing. Interesting take. Sent from the iMore App
  • News no longer relies on local publications signing on through Apple. It's open to any blogger or website. I hope that that means that News will be available in every market going forward. It never made sense to me that I couldn't get a news aggregator in Canada, specially since many of the publications on it were available in Newsstand.
