Apple News, the mobile news application launched in 2015 with iOS 9, was initially exclusive to customers in the United States. Since then, it has been made available in Great Britain and in Australia with iOS 9.1. Today, Apple announced that News will be offered in Canada with iOS 12.2, in English and in French. In the notes accompanying the beta version of iOS 12.2, the company writes:

“Apple News will be available in Canada with iOS 12.2, and is now available for Canadian users on the developer beta. Apple News in Canada supports both English and French. Readers can access a bilingual experience when they follow a channel in a second language.”

As a reminder, the News application has been available on Macintosh since macOS Mojave, along with other iOS applications based on the UIKit framework (Stocks, Voice Memos, Home). iOS 12.2 will probably become available in March. News will most likely appear on the Mac with the macOS 10.14.4 update, possibly also in March.
