The cost is $9.99 a month, and the first month is free. If you subscribe, Apple will allow you to share your subscription across a Family Sharing group, which is up to six people.


You can browse through old or current magazines and newspapers, and they can be downloaded to read later. You can even save a specific article to read when you have time.

To subscribe, download iOS 12.2 if you're using an iPhone or iPad, and if you're using a macOS laptop or desktop, you'll need to update to the new macOS version 10.14.4.
