iOS 9 came out on September 16, and introduced many new and exciting features.
I’m not here to talk about any of them. Except one.
Apple News! The app, not the clickbait-y article from Buzzed or MacRumors or wherever. News allows you to control the content you receive, and create an aggregate from multiple news services to deliver high quality and relevant stories and content to you in one place. It’s awesome and I encourage all of you to go check it out. After you finish reading this, of course.
The reason I am telling you about this, is that Sword & Quill is available through News! Simply go to Search inside of the News App and type “Sword & Quill” in the search bar. Under Channels, Sword & Quill will appear. By clicking the + on the right hand side, new posts will automatically be added to your feed!
I hope this makes it easier for some of you to find and read posts. If you have any questions or feedback, please let me know through the links in the About Me section.
One thought on “Apple News, umm…news.”
Flipboard used to be my favorite and most used iPad app. Now it is Apple News and I have not used Flipboard once since I started using it (the day of ios9 release). I am in Australia (where you can access it by changing the Settings regional setting to US) and it even has access to Australian media!
I think it is a terrific app that really hits the spot, unlike Apple Music which was terrific in the earlier iteration (particularly because of how radio stations worked). I won’t be continuing my Apple Music subscription because it is so awful now, by comparison.
Best wishes, Charles.
