Apple Announces Improvements to Apple News Format Including Remote Image Support, Map Components, More

Posted May 10, 2016 at 5:15pm by iClarified · 9393 views
Apple today announced a few big improvements to its Apple News Format including Map and Place Components, Remote Image Support, Cover Image Management, and Using datePublished to Post Older Content.

Map and Place Components
Use the new Map component to display a geographical location on a map, complete with pins and selectable map views. This allows readers to view the location in standard, hybrid, or satellite map view. You can also define a specific area by using the Place component.

Remote Image Support
Previously, images were required to be included in your Apple News Format article bundle. We've changed this so that images can now also be remotely referenced resources.

Cover Image Management
You can now choose to have News automatically select a cover from the article thumbnails you deliver, or upload a custom image directly to News Publisher. Note that cover images must be at least 600 x 600 or 600 x 800 pixels large in size.

Using datePublished to Post Older Content
Utilize the datePublished metadata property when posting older content to ensure that older articles don't appear at the top of your channel.
