Read Apple News+ in News on Mac
If you’re an Apple News+ subscriber, the News+ Library in Apple News on your Mac makes it easy to find and read magazines, newspapers, and other publications available in the Apple News+ catalog. When you follow an Apple News+ magazine or newspaper, it’s added to the sidebar for easy access.
You must be signed in to the App Store on your Mac to read Apple News+ stories and issues.
