I have just updated to iOS9 but can't find the Apple News app. All web sites imply that the News app is part of the released version of iOS9. Interestingly, the U.K. Apple site whats new with iOS9 implies its 'coming soon' Is this a UK only issue?

  • Do you still have Newsstand? – RedEagle2000 Sep 16 '15 at 19:50
  • I don't think so ... I never used it, but a spotlight search doesn't list it. – BudgieUK Sep 16 '15 at 19:52
  • That's very strange. I'm in the U.S., but have had the News app on my iPad Air since downloading the first public beta of iOS 9. – RedEagle2000 Sep 16 '15 at 19:53

    "Apple did say it's launching first in the United States, United Kingdom and Australia." From this CNET article: cnet.com/uk/news/apple-launches-news-app/# – RedEagle2000 Sep 16 '15 at 19:55
  • I have iOS 9.1 beta on my iPad, and it's on that! – BudgieUK Sep 16 '15 at 19:56

    “You need to set your region from settings.app to USA” — that’ll make the News app appear, but I doubt this is what we’re meant to do. – Paul D. Waite Sep 17 '15 at 11:36

    @AndrewFerrier lol that's hardly a reason to downvote people is it? This answer is contributive in its way. You can't just downvote people because you don't agree with the approach personally. At most you shall just add a comment. Also you actually didn't explain what the "effect on many other things in the system" is at all. Shall I also downvote you were it an answer? – xji Sep 22 '15 at 15:24

    Right, instead on downvoting and griping in the comments, why not just edit the answer to add the relevant warning? – Mike Chamberlain Sep 23 '15 at 7:38
