Re: Apple News app has reportedly been disabled when used in China
Can confirm. I have a U.S. App Store account, but have not had access for News here in Chengdu since day 1, with or without a VPN. When you compound this with Apple's having complied with the government's wishes to put their servers for China here in China, Apple's platitudes about security and internet freedom are an f-ing joke.
