The problem with the apple news plus includes
- The struggles with browsing content from the new Apple News+ partners as well as major problems reading that content, some of which is nothing more than PDFs of magazine pages that don’t display well on small screens.
- What’s more frustrating is that the paid Apple News+ subscription does not appear to give you full digital access to all of the participating publications. You’re mostly allowed to read the stories that appear in the print editions.
- There are parts of Apple News+, like family sharing, that currently do not work as advertised.
- The PDF-style delivery completely sucks on a small iPhone screen, by the way.
- They look more like webpages than magazine pages, and because they’re specifically coded in the Apple News format, this content is responsive and adjusts to different screen sizes. Other, smaller publications, like Surfer and Guitar World, appear in Apple News+ as nothing more than a series of PDFs you can flip through and zoom in on to read.
The apple news plus though seem promising but the problem like these really spoils the fun of reading the news and articles .Though one can have the one month trial period in it and then judge what it will lead to finally according to their taste .
