  • Apple News is one of the best apps I use on a day-to-day basis
  • Most people don't seem to know about it though
  • Take a look at what you can do with it

Apple pre-installs an app on iPhones and iPads that you're probably not even using.

The thing is, it's probably one of the best apps Apple makes.

It's called Apple News, and it has quickly become, over the past couple of months, my go-to application for most news.

The biggest stories of the day are always presented at the top of the page.

Apple News is getting new changes in iOS 11, due out for iPads and iPhones this fall, which more custom content. Start using it now, though, I think you'll agree it's one of the best places to find the biggest and most compelling news stories without having to dig. It's free, so you have nothing to lose.
