Apple released the update to the operating system on Monday.Apple is offering a free month of News Plus. After that, the service costs $9.99 for access for up to six family members.I had been following ESPN on my Apple News app, so the News Plus service automatically highlighted ESPN The Magazine for me. You can access the full issue of the magazine in which an article was published by tapping on a thumbnail image of it in the bottom left-hand corner of the screen.You can't scroll through the entire magazine via Apple News. But that was a relief; accessing articles a la carte felt much more manageable. News Plus subscribers won't necessarily be able to access a complete collection of articles from such publishers, however. The Journal, for example, is offering some of its key business stories, but not all of its coverage. You can download entire issues to the app by tapping on the icon under the magazines.To test the feature, I downloaded an issue of ESPN The Magazine and then put my phone into airplane mode. When I returned to the Apple News app, my downloaded ESPN magazine was the only thing I could access.Overall, the Apple News Plus app looks great and is easy to navigate. If you used the Texture app in the past, it will feel familiar. Apple acquired the magazine aggregation app last year, and its News Plus service feels more like a rebranding of that product than an entirely new offering. It does, though, have a shortcoming — a lack of daily news content. Apple is clearly trying to highlight its partnerships with The Wall Street Journal and the Los Angeles Times. But most of the articles you'll find in Apple News Plus come from magazines.
