Like Facebook and Snapchat, Apple has partnered with news publishers to deliver a beautiful and fast-loading editorial experience on its home turf: iOS devices.
Apple News is a brand-new native app that officially launched with iOS 9 and replaces Newsstand. Similar to Flipboard, News uses RSS feeds to pull together stories from different publishers in a magazine-style layout. News, however, doesn’t have Flipboard’s built-in social capabilities, like incorporating a feed of just links shared by your Twitter network.
Previously, iOS devices had a Newsstand folder that served as a hub for newspaper and magazine apps.
