Issuu is now an approved Apple News channel and therefore we can help you to distribute and promote your Stories to millions of readers on Apple devices.
For those who are new to Apple News, here is more information about how it works and why this is a huge benefit of becoming an Issuu Stories publisher.
- Currently Apple News is available only in the United States, United Kingdom and Australia, so the content should be in English and editorial quality.
- Anyone can apply directly to publish on Apple News but there is a registration and approval process with Apple as well as it is required to set up your content and add it to 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 realized all above actions require a lot of time and effort on your side, so the good news is, we decided to make your life a lot easier by handling all these things on behalf of Issuu publishers that agree to actively create Stories on Issuu.
Issuu has already applied to Apple News by sharing a sample of various Stories content on Issuu with the Apple editorial team. Because each Story appears on the Issuu Apple News channel feed, we have 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, you do not need 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 which will help you to 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 media with hashtag #IssuuStories so that we can capture your content but we will also check our platform regularly for new Stories that have been created by our publishers. 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.
