I bought an iPhone 6s recently and my brother did so too, we just come pared them and it appears that my iPhone 6s doesn't have a default News app (the one that can't be deleted) but my brother does. Why is that?

  • What OS are they running and which country's app store are they using? – user151019 Oct 22 '15 at 14:06
  • iOS 9 and country Cyprus – Vadim Tatarnikov Oct 22 '15 at 14:07
  • Change your region to US and reboot your phone. – mspasov Oct 22 '15 at 14:11

On the apple forum it states from Sept. 24th that the news app is only available in the US. Maybe the phone of your brother has a US iTunes store account or was bought there?

  • Yeah probably the region is the problem cause he set up it as us and I did as Cyprus. I think I'll try restoring it. – Vadim Tatarnikov Oct 22 '15 at 14:12
  • Let us know if that works! – kamuro Oct 22 '15 at 14:13

I found the solution. I just changed my region in the settings to United States, which restarted my iPhone when applied and adds the app.
