The recently announced Apple News app will make keeping up with world coverage much easier. It replaces its now defunct Newsstand alternative in order to not only grant people access to content from publishers across the world, but also to customize the way these articles are displayed. Similar to Flipboard, the Apple News app is a personalized feed of content and articles.

In line with the tech giant's other announcements, the Apple News app is essentially a catch-up development. Like Apple Music, it's meant to compete with existing products that have already seen huge successes. Launching in the US, UK and Australia, it also boasts a number of impressive publishers including The Economist, Vanity Fair, Financial Times, Time, Wired, BuzzFeed, Vox, the New York Times, Bloomberg Business and The Verge.
