Ads for paid subscriptions to news sources in Apple News
Are you experiencing this?
I’m not sure how long Apple has been doing this. I was reading Apple News last night and didn’t seem to come across any paid ads by sources hocking their content using a free month of access as bait.
This morning in the ‘For You’ section I came across numerous ads from different sources like LA Times, NYT and various other crass media outlets, trying to get in my pocket:
I have never even heard of History Magazine…but I went to public school.
Perhaps I got this one because of my severe ADD.
I barely like real people, so paying to read about them is highly unlikely.
Then Poof…they were gone
When I turned the device in landscape mode to grab a horizontal screenshot…I couldn’t find anymore ads. Back to portrait: similar no joy…they were gone.
