How do we get onto Apple News?

The most reliable way to get onto Apple News is by using FlatPlan’s no-code software. Our stable Apple News integration replaces weeks of development, design, QA and project management work, and our expert team help editorial, audience and sales teams understand the opportunities available to publishers on Apple News.

All we need to get started is a content source (this could be an RSS feed, an API feed or simply a web page where new stories appear, like your homepage) plus a few assets like logos and fonts. Our design team carefully replicates your website design in Apple News Format, our engineers build your 'channel' and our system ensures publishers need never run QA processes to meet Apple's strict quality controls.

It’s also worth noting that publishing to Apple News requires an invite from Apple News. But with FlatPlan, we can represent your publication and present a case for your inclusion on the platform.
