We’ve also provided guidance that will help Siri make the most informed recommendations about your content in iOS 11, as well as some new tips and tricks.
New Apple News Format Features in iOS 11 Beta
iOS 11 beta offers some new and exciting updates to Apple News Format. We have added the ability to link from one component to another within your articles with anchor links, and made placing content side-by-side easier than ever with the new Collection Display property. For more information on these features and how to begin experimenting with iOS 11 beta, check out the What’s New section of the Apple News Format Reference. You’ll need to install Xcode 9 beta 3 and News Preview 1.3.7 beta to get started.
Optimize Your Content for Siri Suggestions
Apple News Format gives publishers the ability to include promotional components that help readers discover apps, newsletters, marquee content, and more. However, the text that appears within promotional components is usually unrelated to the article the user tapped on. We want to ensure that News personalization ignores any text that is not essential to the story. This will help Siri make the most informed content recommendations to News users, increase content placement accuracy within For You and topic feeds, and help you find and develop the most engaged audiences for your articles.
Please place any unrelated or promotional content within the new aside component. It looks just like a container component, but sends a signal to Siri that it’s safe to ignore the container’s text when making personalized recommendations in the future.
