Went to skim the news on my Apple News app this a.m.—it crashed 3 times in a row. Deleted, re-installed, same thing. Any ideas? I’ve upgraded both iPad and iPhone to 12.2 and have the issue on both devices.
I had the same issue on both iPhone and iPad this morning.
In both cases a reboot fixed it.
Hopefully I haven’t just jinxed myself…
It does seem a bit flaky. Might just be heavy volume.
OTOH, while checking out the new features, I got messages something like “this story requires a subscription”, and “you are not authorized” multiple times. I was reading stories from several sources to judge the information available and the quality of the presentation.
I don’t like animated objects on a page when I’m reading, and I especially didn’t like the same large video that showed up frequently.
I was never a fan of the service. The few hours I spent with it yesterday didn’t change my opinion. I cancelled my subscription.
Update: I opened Apple News this morning and received a pop-up saying my subscription had expired, did I want to renew it. No surprise.
When I clicked on No Thanks the app crashed. That happened every time I opened the app. Deleted Apple News and reinstalled. Now it doesn’t require me to click on No Thanks - it crashes automatically.
Opened Reeder, read the news.
Reboot solved the issue for me, so far so good after that.
Reboot worked. Thanks!
