Here’s our guide on how to use the new Apple News app for the iPhone and iPad in iOS 10. For our complete guide to iOS 10, head over here.

Unlike Facebook, Apple is specifically trying to be more of a news source to its users.

You can use the redesigned Apple News app in iOS 10 (which is just labeled “News”), to browse the most important, breaking stories of the day from almost all the publications that you want.

You can even allow News to send you push notifications —it’ll ask as soon you open the app for the first time — so that you won’t miss anything. To edit these notifications later, and to delete some or add new ones, tap “Favorites” on the bottom in News, then tap the icon that looks like a bell in the upper left corner.
