Explore channels, topics, and stories in News on Mac
Apple News collects and organizes stories from a wide range of publications (called channels) and topics. It’s easy to explore what’s there and find the sources and stories that interest you—from breaking news to travel videos to summer recipes.
Note: Apple News and Apple News+ aren’t available in all countries or regions.
In the News app on your Mac, click an item in the sidebar (if you don’t see the sidebar, click in the toolbar).
The sidebar includes:
Today, which presents top stories selected by Apple News editors and stories from the channels and topics you follow. In some countries or regions, the Today feed can include local news, featuring curated and personalized local stories and weather reports, based on your location.
News+, which presents top stories from Apple News+ publishers selected by Apple News editors, stories for you from Apple News+ magazines and newspapers, and the full Apple News+ catalog to browse. You must subscribe to Apple News+ to read many of the stories.
Access to stories you saved and your reading history.
Following, which lists the channels and topics you follow. This section also includes Apple News Spotlight and News Top Stories, which showcase coverage of special events and content curated by Apple News editors.
Suggested, which lists channels and topics suggested by Siri or—if you chose not to have Siri suggest items—by your actions in Apple News. For example, whether you follow or block channels and topics, or ask for more or fewer suggestions similar to a story you’re reading. In some countries or regions, local news may be suggested based on your location.
On the right, scroll up or down to browse stories, then click a story to read it.
While reading a story, you can do any of the following:
Move to the next or previous story by pressing the Right Arrow or Left Arrow keys.
Go directly to the channel’s feed. Click the channel name in the banner near the top of the window (if you don’t see the banner, scroll up until it appears). You can also click the Share button , then choose Go to Channel.
If you don’t see a channel, topic, or story you expected, you can search Apple News for it, or choose File > Discover Channels & Topics to browse channels and topics.
You can set an option in News preferences for the Today and other feeds to show only stories from the channels you follow.
Tip: You can stop some channel and topic groups—such as Travel or Food—from being suggested in the Today feed. Next to the group, click the More icon , then choose Stop Suggesting. If you change your mind and want Apple News to suggest the group again, search for it, then follow it.
