Move over Flipboard. Just announced at Apple's WWDC 2015 keynote, a new app for iOS called News will curate articles based on your interests.
Susan Prescott, vice president of product marketing, took to the stage to tell the audience about News. The app has more than 1 million topics to choose from, according to Apple. The more you read, the better the app gets to know your interests, which allows it to better curate articles for you.
Apple says News keeps your data private and will not share what you are reading with third parties, which means there will be no customized advertisements based on your interests. Various publishers like ESPN, The New York Times and numerous other newspapers and magazines will be supporting the app.
News will be available in the United States, Australia and the United Kingdom.
News wasn't the only big app news to come out of the keynote. Maps will be getting a major overhaul with a new Transit view, which includes directions for public transportation like buses and subways. Transit, at launch, will support major cities like San Francisco, New York, Toronto and more, as well as 300 cities in China. Maps will also allow you to more easily find restaurants, bars and stores, even highlighting which of the stores accept Apple Pay.
Notes, too, is getting some new features. Users can now add pictures to Notes by accessing the camera from the Notes app. Users can also add content from Safari and other apps to Notes.
