• Apple News Format Update Adds New Features for Publishers

    Apple's news app is seeing a few improvements in its update, which Apple is now updating with a focus for their publishers and their content.

    Apple is adding a few new features that should make news articles even better. That includes Place and Maps components, which will let news articles now showcase relevant locations to a story, which will include pins and places of interest.

    Publishers can now choose their own custom artwork to be displayed as their channelís cover art. So youíll be able to see that in the icons for publications throughout Apple News, like in the Favorites section. Up until this point Apple had locked that feature down to only select partners, so itís good to see it land for other publishers as well.

    The update also includes some other changes for publishers as well. Itís rolling out now. Do you use Apple News all that often?
