iOS 12.2 Beta Contains Landing Page for 'Apple News Magazines' Subscription Service

Posted by · 4171 views · Translate

The new beta of iOS 12.2 seeded to developers yesterday contains a landing page for Apple's rumored magazine subscription service. The page was discovered by developer Guilherme Rambo for 9to5Mac.

Today, we’ve been able to activate the landing page for this new service on Apple News running on iOS 12.2. It looks like the subscription service will be called “Apple News Magazines” and it will be associated to the user’s iTunes Store account, just like Apple Music. There are many mentions of “bundle subscription” in this beta, which makes us believe this can be a part of Apple’s plan to release an all-in-one media subscription which will include Apple Music, TV shows and magazines.

Some of the magazines featured on the landing page include Shape, ESPN, Bon Appetit, and Vogue. The site was not able to find any pricing information but Apple currently charges $9.99/month for its Texture magazine subscription service. The company acquired Texture last March.

It's unclear when 'Apple News Magazines' will become available; however, it's been rumored for launch this spring. You can follow iClarified on Twitter, Facebook, Google+, or RSS for updates.
