How to Clear Apple News History on iPhone and iPad in iOS 9

Apple News app offers excellent news services to users. Once you read the news, you can delete the History with long swipe & gentle swipe gestures. You can also delete all news stored in the History section.

Before the launch of iOS 9, Apple fans were quite excited to lay their hands on News app. However, the app was accessible to users of US and other select countries. And users outside US want to access Apple News, they can do this by changing Language & Region on their iPhones.

Now that you have Apple News on your iPhone and iPad, you must be enjoying the world of latest information & opinions on myriad topics. While exploring your favorite news agencies, you probably might have saved some stories. Normally, users would never delete those saved stories, but they would certainly like to delete news stories stored in History section.
