If you subscribe to Apple News+, automatically download the most recent issue of magazines you follow, to read even when you’re not connected to the internet. If you want issues automatically downloaded, select the checkbox.

By default, Siri suggests channels, topics, and stories in News, and learns from the way you use News to make suggestions across other apps. To stop these suggestions, choose Apple menu > System Settings, then click Siri & Spotlight in the sidebar. (You may need to scroll down.) Click Siri Suggestions & Privacy on the right, click News on the left, then turn off “Show Siri Suggestions in application” to stop Siri suggestions in News. Turn off “Learn from this application” to stop Siri from using what it learns in News to make suggestions across apps.
