3. It's an all-you-can-read buffet

With one flat fee of $9.99 a month for the all-you-can-read plan, you will have access to all the magazine and newspapers it offers.

4. It protects your privacy

Apple provides a personalized service, but not one advertiser can track the readers' activities; keeping the privacy safe. That was one of the first points Apple boasted.

5. It has Family Sharing

At no extra cost, the app is available to the whole family. Taking a cue from Apple Music, Apple News Plus offers each family member full access to the entire catalog as well as their own personalization preferences. 

6. It's free for the first month.

8. It's heading for Australia and the UK next
