The News App on Your iPad - dummies

By Nancy C. Muir

With iOS 9 comes the News app. This app is a great new addition to your iPad and will make reading the news much easier. Or, at least, finding what you want to read will be easier. This so-called news aggregator gathers news stories that either match your news reading habits, or match the channels and topics you’ve selected. You can choose which news sites are your favorites, search for news on a particular topic, and save news stories to read later.

To get started with the News app, on the home screen, click the app to open it.

  1. The For You tab of news stories appears by default, though whichever tab you last chose will appear next time you open the app.


  2. Scroll down the page to see the news stories of the day.

  3. Tap an item in the You Might Like list for more items that might be of interest to you.


Remember that when you’re reading a story you like, you can tap the Share button at the top of the screen to share via Mail, Message, Twitter, or Facebook.
