Apple News

If you’ve got an iPhone or an iPad, the Apple News app comes preloaded on every iOS device.

This app places a big focus on images and quick-loading videos, plus publications such as The New York Times and National Geographic have partnered with the company to make their content readily available for Apple customers.

Users are also able to follow trends or individual topics, ranging from politics to niche news, meaning that you never fall out of touch with current issues that you’re invested in.

BBC News

The BBC is one of the most popular news organizations around, dedicated to keeping you up to date with the latest topics and news stories. Unlike some other news sources, the BBC News app isn’t afraid to offer a bit more fun with its articles, and it also comes with a live-streaming news channel that’s baked directly into the app.

If you opt-in, you’ll be alerted any time the app deems breaking news to be urgent enough to warrant your attention, making it a fantastic way to keep up-to-date.
