Apple News+: The 277 Publications Available With a Subscription (So Far)

Will Apple News+ be worth it? 

Apple News+

Apple News+, the premium subscription product rolled out by Apple as part of its new services blitz, is Apple’s attempt to help consumers avoid succumbing to subscription hell. Faced with declining advertising revenues, publications both online and off- have erected paywalls en-masse. For $9.99 per month, Apple News+ lets you bypass the paywalls on more than 300 publications, the cost of which unbundled would top $8,000, according to the company’s claims.

The vast majority of the available publications are magazines (Texture, a magazine bundling service that Apple acquired last year already offered 200 magazine subscriptions for about the same price). As part of its Apple News+ service, the company has also recruited a handful of newspapers and digital media entities to offer their products as part of the $9.99 fee.

Apple will split the money from the subscriptions with publishers 50/50 based on how many people read a given publication’s articles. Apple’s marketing the service as a deal, even going so far as to flash a big “$8,000” on the screen during its presentation, which then gets booted out of the way by a more attractively priced $9.99, as you can see in the below GIF. This is textbook price-anchoring: By showing you an expensive hypothetical or alternative price before showing the real one, Apple makes the actual price seem cheaper.

Look at that price anchoring — what a deal! 

Apple News+ Release Date and Price

Unlike most of the other products Apple unveiled at Monday’s event, Apple News+ is available right away starting at $9.99 in the United States, or $12.99 in Canada, according to Apple’s press release. The service will be available in the United Kingdom and Australia “later this year.”

Apple News+ Available Publications

Apple has recruited most of the big magazine conglomerates into the Apple News+ ecosystem, including Hearst, Conde Nast, and Meredith, which between them account for nearly 80 U.S. titles, according to the company media kits. Apple has also recruited a handful of daily newspapers, including The Los Angeles Times, The Wall Street Journal, and The Toronto Star; and some digital publications like theSkimm.

You can check out a full list of the publications that were featured in the announcement below, as well as the full library available on Texture, the magazine app Apple acquired last year. Apple didn’t respond to multiple requests for a full publication list, but we were able to add a few more titles to list below using a leak from Federico Viticci at MacStories.

Between Apple’s announcement, Viticci’s count, and the available magazines on Texture, Inverse counted a total of 277 publications. We’ll update the list if Apple alerts us to any that we missed.

Apple News+: Is It Worth the Money?

Apple’s $8,000 figure is a bit misleading, the 300-publication count includes a lot of industry publications with pretty narrow appeal (not to slight the fine work of the people at Wood), children’s titles, and even a few publications in foreign languages, like Châtelaine. And of course, even if you read 24/7, you’d have a hard time getting the full $8,000 worth of articles.

It also doesn’t look like the full Wall Street Journal subscription will be included with Apple News+ According to an internal memo obtained by the Verge, the Journal will only provide a selection of curated general interest news to Apple News+ readers, not necessarily the all of in-depth financial coverage and analysis the paper is known for.

To that end, an Apple News+ subscription likely makes the most sense for people who already subscribe to the new dailies offered (like the Star or the LA Times) or people who read a lot of magazines. The average American spends something like 15 minutes reading magazines per day, according to data on Statista, which is probably between five and ten stories per week, depending on how long they are. At $9.99 per month, that’s something like 30 cents per story for an average consumer. If you read more than a dozen magazine stories a month, the Apple News+ subscription will likely be a bargain.

Apple News+
Apple's magazine bundle will pay off for heavy magazine consumers.
