Apple News + seems to be a real success. The unlimited press subscription service, currently exclusive to the American continent, was announced Monday March 25 at an Apple conference event. The keynote also took the opportunity to put ahead Apple Arcade, an unlimited video games platform, Apple Card, a virtual and physical bank card, and Apple TV +, a mini-competitor of Netflix with its own exclusive series.

Apple News iPhone iPad - Apple News +: more than 200,000 users registered for the launch!

The first figures of Apple News +, recently released, fell thanks to an article from the New York Times. The American newspaper reports that more than 200,000 people signed up within 48 hours of launching the application, to take advantage of the proposed trial period. That’s more than the number of subscribers to Texture, the app Apple bought and on which Apple News + relies.

To have Apple News +, you must necessarily download iOS 12.2. And since iPhone and iPad users are slow enough to download it, it means that the audience will soon be larger. To see when the trial period is over, to find out if users of the app will put $ 9.99 per month to continue enjoying it. Only the future will tell us.
