Apple Adds Section Highlighting the 2018 Midterm Elections to Apple News
Apple hopes its new section focusing on the 2018 midterm elections will help iPhone and iPad users stay informed about local and national races. Apple says the section, curated by its editors, will feature breaking news, exclusive highlights, and analysis from reliable sources so readers can get up to speed on candidates and topics. The section will have several sub-sections. For example, The Conversation will house opinion columns about hot-button issues, while On the Ground will highlight reporting about local issues and races. Apple says it will include content from a variety of publishers, including Axios, Fox News, Politico, Vox, and the Washington Post. Apple says the Apple News 2018 Midterm Elections section is already available to U.S. readers and will remain in place through the elections in November.
