    Default Apple News App

    Where is the Apple News app? Not for news about Apple, but for news in general? I remember seeing it once upon a time, probably when my iPhone 6 updated to iOS 9. I'm now on an iPhone 7+ with iOS 10 and I'd like to give it another try but I cannot find it. Not on my phone and not in the app store.

    I am in the US with a US localized phone from Verizon.

    The Apple News app is on my phone. Is it in a folder? I just went to the App Store and the Apple News app is there.

    If it's not on your phone...you deleted it and it will be in the App Store to re-download. If it's not in the App Store, from your home page, pull down and enter news in the search bar.

    It is not there. I have looked, browsed and searched. It is not there. Not on the phone and not in the store.

    I even opened a Store search for Pages, opened that and tapped on the developer name (Apple) to shiw me all apps from the same developer. And it's not there.

    It's part of stock iOS, you can "delete" it, but it should be there.

    Is it in settings?

    If I delete it, it no longer shows up in settings, so you should be able to activate it in the App Store. Search for news and it should be there, if it isn't you might try restoring your phone.

    I understand that, I'm saying it comes stock with the software, it's either there or it's in the App Store, if it isn't either....you might need to restore your phone.

    I actually re-downloaded it for this thread, because I deleted it, then deleted it again and it is again available in the App Store for me.

    So you are either doing something wrong or your phone is, if it's your phone then a restore may be in order, occasionally the software doesn't flash correctly and it needs a restore out of the box.

    I have even checked my Language And Region settings, it already had the correct Region (United States) and I changed the Language from "English" to "English US" and rebooted, still cannot locate the app on the device or in the App Store.

    Check your restrictions see if there is an issue there, also maybe try signing out and back in to iTunes.

    Settings>General>Restrictions

    Go to Settings → General → Reset, and then select either "Reset All Settings" or "Reset Homescreen Layout" if you're certain you haven't deleted the native News app from your device.

    Did the restore, still not there. Also, I checked the App Store via iTunes on my desktop, to eliminate the phone (or iPad, same thing, on iOS 9) being the issue. Not showing in the App Store from the desktop either.

    It's GONE. Now I have the added joy of having to call my bank to once again authorize the addition of my debit card to Apple Pay. Twice now in three days.

    Did you check your restrictions in settings to see if the News app is disabled, as recommended by Shutter a few posts up? On a whim, I just disabled it on my 6s plus to see what would happened. When I did, it disappeared from the phone and App Store exactly how you describe your situation.

    The restore has a re-sign-in to iTunes built in.

    Ok, who hid this in Restrictions? That solved it. Thank you!

    Just saw that post now. For some reason, I never received a notice of his, or several other, responses since this after noon. Got yours, though.
