Issuu is now an approved Apple News channel and therefore we’re approved to distribute and promote your Stories content to millions more readers on Apple devices!! For those of you who are new to Apple News, here’s a bit more about how it works and why this is a huge added benefit of becoming an Issuu Stories publisher.
- Currently Apple News is available only in the United States, United Kingdom, or Australia, so the content does need to be in English and be editorial quality.
- Anyone can apply directly to publish on Apple News but there is a registration and approvals process with Apple, as well as ongoing work to set up your content and add it to a the Apple News feed.
- Before any content shows up in Apple News, the applicant must register as a publisher, set up a channel, and get samples of your content approved by Apple’s editorial team.
- We realize all this requires a lot of time and effort on your part, so the good news is, we decided to make life a lot easier for you by handling all of this for you, on behalf of Issuu publishers that agree to actively create Stories on Issuu.
Issuu has already applied to Apple News by sharing a sampling of various Stories content on Issuu with the Apple editorial team. Because each Story appears on the Issuu Apple News channel feed, we’ve made sure to display a credit for each publisher/author that produces the Story content as well as display any photo captions or credits. We set up an automatic feed to share our Stories right into Apple News, so once you create a Story on Issuu, there is no need for you to separately format it for Apple News, we do all that on our end.
We also organize your content into popular topics or categories. Be sure to pick your “Category” when you create a Story so we can add it to our feeds as we continue to expand featured Categories.
The more volume, the more reads, and the more ways you can connect with a brand new audience on Apple devices (in the US, UK, and Australia).
To make sure your Stories and publication are discovered by our editorial team, we encourage you to create a Story and share on social with the hashtag #IssuuStories that way we’ll be on the look out for your new content.
Depending on how often you publish new content, we encourage you to produce 5-10 Stories per publication so that we can include you in our upcoming Apple News feed. Again just share and tag any Stories that you create on social media with #IssuuStories as that’s the best way for us to capture your Stories content, but we’ll also check our platform regularly for new Stories that have been created by our publishers.
