Three of National Geographic’s magazines are available on the newly launched Apple News+ service, where readers can immerse themselves in richly designed content created specifically for the app.
“Our goal for Apple News+ was simple. We wanted to create the best magazine reading experience ever for a mobile device,” said Roger Rosner, Apple’s vice president of applications, at the Apple event at the company’s California headquarters.
To introduce the new service, Apple CEO Tim Cook showed a video on the power of journalism and its cultural impact, which featured National Geographic photographer Aaron Huey along with numerous National Geographic images.
Wyatt Mitchell, Apple’s director of application design, kicked off a demo of Apple News by showing off its live covers – an animated version of the usually stagnant cover images. National Geographic’s April 2019 cover was exclusively designed for the app and brought to life with stunning aerial views of Sydney, Australia. Wyatt showed the audience how users can easily swipe through the latest issue of National Geographic to view beautifully designed pages of text, photos and infographics.

“Apple News+ makes the experience of diving into an issue more fun and exciting,” Wyatt told the audience during the demo. “It’s really like having National Geographic designed for my phone.”
Apple News+ offers over 300 magazines, newspapers and digital publishers, including National Geographic, Traveler and History magazines.
National Geographic has a long history of collaborating with Apple, as a launch partner for the introduction of Apple News in 2015. All five of National Geographic’s magazines – National Geographic, Traveler, History, Kids and Little Kids – have been and will continue to be available to read through Apple’s service.
