Ever since Apple announced inclusion of News app in iOS 9 during its WWDC 2015 in June, every news enthusiast was keen to open and explore this app. However, developer community has already enjoyed this app with their developers’ account.
But hold it! Apple made this app available in a select few countries – during iOS 9 beta versions and post public release of iOS 9. This means, if anybody, who is not from US or UK, can’t use News app on his iPhone enabled with iOS 9.
We have found a way to this issue. All you need to do is follow a very simple procedure mentioned below.
How to Get Apple News App Outside US
Step #1. Launch Settings app on your iPhone → Tap on General.
Step #2. Scroll down and tap on Language & Region option.
Step #3. Tap on Region from under REGION FORMATS.
Step #4. Tap on United States from the list of countries.
Step #5. Tap on Done button from top right corner.
A menu will swipe up from bottom. You will see two options: Change to English (United States) and Keep “Language” (Your Existing Country).
Step #7. Tap on Change to English (United States).
For a few seconds, your iPhone will go blank; after this, your phone will brighten up. You will be on the screen of Language & Region, where Region will be selected as United States.
Now go to your home screen and check all apps; you can see News app along with other apps. If in case, you don’t see News app, you can restart your iPhone and check again. News app will appear on your iPhone.
Note: Please note that if you change the Language & Region back to your home country, the News app will disappear from your iPhone/iPad. Also note that once you select US in Language & Region, your iPhone or iPad will show the US currency.
Enable Apple News App on Jailbroken iPhone Outside U.S.A:
There’s another way to use News app on your iOS 9 device, and that is to jailbreak your iPhone / iPad and install a Cydia tweak. There’s a free Cydia tweak available on BigBoss repo called “NewsOfTheWorld”. The tweak will replace the Apple Newstand app on your home screen, and also serves the purpose very well. The best part is you can use this app in any country.
Price: Free | Repo: BigBoss
