Apple News+ offering exclusive covers, innovative storytelling from hundreds of publishers<br/>Readers Now Have Direct Access to Their Favorite Titles<br/>Since Apple News+ launched in March, publishers have been using the platform to showcase innovative live covers, special issues and customized feature stories for subscribers. <br/>Now, with iOS 12.3 and macOS 10.14.5, released May 13, Apple News+ subscribers are able to follow publications directly from the Apple News+ catalog. New issues from followed titles will be automatically downloaded and available offline, and Apple News+ subscribers can also download individual issues in each title’s channel in Apple News. <br/>“We’ve heard a lot of great feedback from the hundreds of publishers available in Apple News+. The latest updates to Apple News+ aim to best showcase their incredible journalism and put the most trusted news sources at readers’ fingertips,” said Eddy Cue, Apple’s senior vice president of Internet Software and Services. “Apple News+ customers are very engaged readers, with most visiting the News app daily. Hundreds of people at Apple, across editorial, engineering, marketing and design teams, are working to make Apple News+ the best experience for people who love reading their favorite titles and discovering new stories.” <br/>Here’s what editors are saying about some of the new and specialized issues, covers and features available now in Apple News+: <br/><a href="https://apple.news/IwCIEKpScRau_BRj4W3mPGw/" target="_blank">The Highlight by Vox</a> <br/>“The Highlight by Vox on Apple News+ is an opportunity for us to step back from the daily news cycle and focus on stories that are enduring, important and deeply enjoyable to read. We’ve launched new, magazine-style issues in Apple News+, and our most recent issue demonstrates the full range of our ambition with this new format: we explore the radical revolution happening in a Harvard introductory economics course; the history of ‘electroshock therapy’ to treat depression; and the problem of how social media keeps us mired in the past. We also caught up with the boy from one of the internet’s first viral videos, ‘David After Dentist’ — he’s heading to college now! And we lay out the 25 most influential episodes in the history of television in a beautifully designed story.” — Eleanor Barkhorn, deputy managing editor of Vox <br/><a href="https://apple.news/ImSDpFPpqRmCQWmKBoXxD_w/" target="_blank">People</a> <br/>“People’s readers love the royals on every platform, so we deliver compelling content wherever they are. In this special commemorative edition, People delivers an intimate portrait of the lives of Harry, Meghan and baby Archie in a beautiful visual photo album to celebrate this historic moment.” — Dan Wakeford, editor in chief of People <br/><a href="https://apple.news/IpJp8HNZQS0ecVpGSfdnyBA/" target="_blank">Harper’s Bazaar</a> <br/>“Among the great joys of making this magazine is the opportunity to celebrate some truly special people. Apple News+ makes this special cover of Jennifer Aniston come to life and draws you in with movement. Not only does Jennifer always look incredible, but she also radiates a unique kindness that instantly makes you want to be her friend.” — Glenda Bailey, editor in chief of Harper’s Bazaar <br/><a href="https://apple.news/IUELGoUmwQgWPfaei25GcUw/" target="_blank">Town &amp; Country</a> <br/>“We were able to showcase our four incredible cover stars — Yara Shahidi, Christine Lagarde, Ava DuVernay and Melinda Gates — in Apple News+ in a really unique and powerful way. Since 1846, the good life for Town &amp; Country has meant travel, beautiful clothes, art, culture and civility, but always with a clear imperative that the enjoyment of those riches be grounded in a responsibility to give back – in time, in money, in conviction. Our cover stars are all women who embrace the Town &amp; Country ethos of live well and give well.” — Stellene Volandes, editor in chief of Town &amp; Country <br/><a href="https://apple.news/ItrAbH7WyR5y__EriiMMQkQ/" target="_blank">Martha Stewart Living</a> <br/>“For June, our annual summer food and entertaining issue, we had a lot of fun creating and shooting all these amazing sheet cake ideas — they’re delicious and perfect for barbecues, block parties, graduations, birthdays, you name it. So the idea of being able to show not just one of our ideas but several, thanks to a virtual newsstand, helps capture the expansiveness and joy of our content. Apple News+ offers a really exciting opportunity for us to bring our content to life in a fresh new way.” — Abbey Kuster-Prokell, creative director of Martha Stewart Living <br/><a href="https://apple.news/PwlEsPOF0rgty1RMm_y0FIM/" target="_blank">Popular Science</a> <br/>“A tremendous amount of environmental change hits Florida harder and sooner than it does the rest of the nation, which makes the state a bellwether that demands all of our attention. To illustrate that point, we created ‘The Florida Problem,’ a package of six stories that explores how a shifting climate and human development stress the Sunshine State’s natural resources. While this type of effort is a real design challenge on any platform, we wanted to focus on nailing the digital navigation of six distinct, yet related, stories and shaping one beautiful product.” — Corinne Iozzio, deputy editor of Popular Science <br/><strong>Pricing and Availability</strong> <br/><a href="https://www.apple.com/apple-news/" target="_blank">Apple News+</a> is available in the US for <strong>$9.99</strong> a month and in Canada for <strong>$12.99</strong> a month.

Photographer Rachael Short explores the beauty of simplicity with iPhone

di Apple Newsroom
Photographer Rachael Short explores the beauty of simplicity with iPhone<br/>California-based photographer Rachael Short likes to keep things simple. Shooting photographs around Carmel, California, she searches for new textures, lighting and contrasts to capture in her portraits and landscapes. She prefers black and white, brushing off color as a distraction. “Life is so chaotic, so it’s something to simplify and calm things down,” Short explains. <br/>In 2010 at age 28, Short suffered a spinal cord injury in a car accident along California’s Highway 1 on Halloween night. She was diagnosed with a C5 fracture in her spine. She was quadriplegic. <br/>It would take 60 days in-hospital for Short to touch her nose with her left hand, and a full year before her arms had the strength to hold anything, let alone a camera. While she was there, her best friend gifted her an iPhone 4 because it was easier to use after her injury. <br/>“It took about a year for me to have enough arm strength to start holding an iPhone,” Short recalls. “It was the first camera that I started using [after the accident], and now it’s the only camera that I’ve been using because it’s nice and light, small and easy to use.” <br/>Since then, Short’s creative process has shifted to one that is digitally streamlined and mobile. “It used to be that I had my 4x5 camera, and I had my medium format camera and 35 mm and it got complicated,” she says. “Now it’s more about the image and less about the technical and the equipment. It’s made me more focused.” <br/>She no longer carries multiple cameras or a variety of films. Instead, she captures a color photo with her iPhone X<span class="all-small-caps">S</span> using the Hipstamatic app, converts it to black and white and edits it in the Snapseed app, prints a digital negative and then produces a platinum print as an archival image. “I've been really impressed with the camera on the iPhone and how I’ve been able to make it do what I did with film,” she says. “The image quality has been really amazing and surprising.” <br/>“Technology has changed so much. It just opens up so many possibilities for people with disabilities and limited mobility.” <br/>Today Short lives a short distance from Gallery EXPOSED in Carmel, her photo gallery where she exhibits local artists’ work. As a wheelchair user, she looks for accessible places to shoot and still be in nature, like Point Lobos for its flat trails and natural beauty, or the long coastal trail weaving along the ocean near Monastery Beach, one of the only places in the area that gets her close to the ocean at all. Though she rarely visited these places before her injury, she now shoots these locations often. She prefers capturing wandering paths or endless roads that lead a viewer’s eye down the frame of a photograph. <br/>Despite the unexpected obstacles put in Short’s path almost a decade ago, she still finds this lightness and dreaminess in the world around her. She embraces today’s technology as a new way for her to create, finding beauty wherever she is, whether in a peace poppy flower that’s sitting in her window, or in the shadow of a tree cast on the facade of the Carmel Mission. <br/>“I couldn’t imagine being in my situation even 15 years ago without my iPhone,” Short says. “Technology has changed so much in that time. It just opens up so many possibilities for people with disabilities and limited mobility. It’s my camera, it’s my email, it’s my photo editing, it’s ‘Hey Siri, do stuff for me.’ It’s everything.” <br/><em>In partnership for Global Accessibility Awareness Day, Apple worked with California photographer Rachael Short to showcase her art, all shot on iPhone. Today, Apple is hosting events around the world to promote inclusive design and emphasize how technology can empower everyone.

Apple Carnegie Library opens Saturday in Washington, D.C.

di Apple Newsroom
Apple Carnegie Library opens Saturday in Washington, D.C.<br/>Washington — Apple today previewed its newest location at the Carnegie Library on Mount Vernon Square. This is Apple’s most extensive historic restoration project to date, restoring and revitalizing the Beaux-Arts style building once home to Washington, D.C.’s Central Public Library. Originally funded by Andrew Carnegie and opened in 1903, the library will once again be a center for learning, discovery and creativity for the community, keeping with Carnegie’s vision of a public and free space for all.  <br/>Apple Carnegie Library will host free daily Today at Apple programming, including sessions led by local artists and world class creators. To celebrate the opening, 40 artists will lead sessions during the six-week StoryMaker Festival. At the store, customers can explore Apple’s latest products and work with over 225 highly trained staff members offering advice and technical support, as well as assistance for small businesses. <br/>“Whether customers come to explore new products, visit one of our Geniuses or unlock their creativity in a Today at Apple session, Apple Carnegie Library is a place for everyone,” said Deirdre O’Brien, Apple’s senior vice president of Retail + People. “We are excited to share this magnificent space with all of our visitors in Washington, D.C., and to provide a home for inspiration for the next generation.” <br/>Carnegie Library on Mount Vernon Square also features the new DC History Center, which includes the Kiplinger Research Library, three galleries and a museum store, all owned and operated by the 125-year-old Historical Society of Washington, D.C. To restore the building to its original grandeur, Apple worked with conservation experts to carefully preserve the historic facades, return interior spaces to their original footprints, and restore distinctive early 20th-century detailing. Foster + Partners worked in close collaboration with Apple’s Chief Design Officer Jony Ive to give this cultural icon a new lease of life. <br/>“I love the synergy between old and new, the juxtaposition of the historic fabric and contemporary design,” said Ive. “In its ‘new’ phase of life, Apple Carnegie Library will be a way for us to share our ideas and excitement about the products we create, while giving people a sense of community and encouraging and nurturing creativity. It has been a significant honor to restore the Carnegie Library for the people of Washington, D.C.”&nbsp; <br/>Visitors to Apple Carnegie Library are welcomed by a revitalized grand entry plaza on K Street, and a new grand entry staircase on Mount Vernon Place creates an inviting route through the building to the adjacent Convention Center and neighboring Shaw District. The library’s Vermont marble facade and sculptures on the south are completely restored. <br/>A skylight that once illuminated the original library’s circulation desk in the heart of the building returns with a new design to transform the space into a soaring double-height atrium. The dramatic gathering space, called the Forum, is the new home for Today at Apple in Washington, D.C. Visitors can attend free daily sessions focused on photography, filmmaking, music creation, coding, design and more. <br/>For six weeks following opening, the StoryMaker Festival will bring together 40 artists, poets, activists, musicians, photographers, filmmakers, lawmakers and community builders to celebrate storytelling and inspire attendees to tell their own stories. The festival will conclude with a weekend block party to celebrate the stories the community has come together to share. <br/>The area that housed the book stacks is now the Genius Grove where Apple’s team of Geniuses will offer personalized technical support and advice. A grand staircase leads to the DC History Center on the second floor and the Carnegie Gallery in the basement, which displays historic photographs and documents for the public to learn about the origins and history of the building. <br/>Nearly half of the store’s employees are Washington, D.C. residents and others have joined from Apple stores across the region and country. The team speaks 27 languages, including more than 20 team members fluent in American Sign Language.&nbsp; <br/>Apple Carnegie Library and the DC History Center open at Carnegie Library on Mount Vernon Square Saturday at 10 am. To sign up for Today at Apple sessions, visit <a href="https://www.apple.com/today/" target="_blank">apple.com/today</a> and the <a href="https://www.apple.com/today/collection/story-makers-festival/carnegielibrary/" target="_blank">StoryMakers Festival page</a>. <br/>Apple revolutionized personal technology with the introduction of the Macintosh in 1984. Today, Apple leads the world in innovation with iPhone, iPad, Mac, Apple Watch and Apple TV. Apple’s four software platforms — iOS, macOS, watchOS and tvOS — provide seamless experiences across all Apple devices and empower people with breakthrough services including the App Store, Apple Music, Apple Pay and iCloud.
