Longman Dictionary of Contemporary English
News is packaged information about current events happening somewhere else. News moves through many different media, based on word of mouth, printing, postal systems, broadcasting, and electronic communication.
Common topics for news reports include war, politics, and business, as well as athletic events, quirky or unusual events, and the doings of celebrities. Government proclamations, concerning royal ceremonies, laws, taxes, public health, and criminals, have been dubbed news since ancient times.
Humans exhibit a nearly universal desire to learn and share news from elsewhere, which they satisfy by traveling, talking to each other and sharing. Technological and social developments, often driven by government communication and espionage networks, have increased the speed with which news can spread, as well as influenced its content. The genre of news as we know it today is closely associated with the newspaper, which originated in China as a court bulletin and spread, with paper and printing press, to Europe.

News is a mobile app and news aggregator bundled with Apple's iOS 9. Users can read news articles with it, based on publishers, websites and topics they select, such as The New York Times, technology or politics. The app was announced at Apple's WWDC 2015. It was released alongside iOS 9 on September 16, 2015, for the iPhone, iPod Touch and iPad. At launch, the application was only available to users in the United States, but the app has since become available to users in Australia and the United Kingdom as well with the release of iOS 9.1 on October 21, 2015. During the keynote address at WWDC 2016, it was revealed that with the forthcoming iOS 10 update the News app will undergo new icon and app redesigns along with an improved For You section organized by topics. Further, there will be support for subscriptions for certain news sources and publishers as well as an opt-in system for breaking news notifications and email on top news stories.
The app works by pulling in news stories from the web through syndication feeds ( Atom and RSS) or from news publishing partners through the JSON descriptive Apple News Format. Any news publisher can submit their content for inclusion in Apple News, any a user can add any feed through the Safari web browser. Stories will be displayed in the app as-in a web browser.
News is fetched from publisher’s websites through the AppleNewsBot. The bot fetches feeds, as well as web pages and images for the Apple News service. It has received criticism for being poorly behaved and not being fault tolerant; resulting in high loads on websites.
The Apple News version distributed with iOS 9 made it hard to differentiate traffic originating from within the app from traffic originating from other apps. Apple News version 2, introduced in iOS 10, began identifying itself using its own User-Agent string, making it possible to measure the reach of Apple News using web analytics solutions. Traffic analytics was previously only available to paying publisher partners through iAds.
