TORONTO — Apple Inc. announced a subscription news service Monday that counts The Toronto Star, La Presse, CTV and Global News as Canadian content suppliers.
Apple Canada says Apple News Plus will cost $12.99 a month, after a free preview month.
The company says the subscription service will have a more extensive collection of content than the free version of Apple News, which will remain available.
Its media partners include newspapers, magazines and digital publications, primarily from the United States.
The news service will require an update of the operating systems to iOS 12.2 for iPhone and iPad mobile devices or to macOS 10.14.4 for Apple laptops.
Financial terms of the agreements between Apple and the publishers weren’t immediately available.
