    Next time I talk to Tim Cook I’ll be sure to ask why Apple News isn’t available in Ireland.🤪
    Truthfully, nobody knows outside of Apple but I’m sure it has something to do with the complexity of required agreements between Apple and news sources in different areas of the world.

    A workaround could be to purchase an iPhone in the UK, and activate it there. That way the News app would be present, and I'd imagine work once in Ireland. Seems like a crazy workaround, but might work.

    Yeah or I can change the location or region either. But it means I won’t have Access to any irish news just uk news

    Oh, that's interesting and can see how that may not be ideal. I didn't realize changing region would impact other news apps. Although I do remember when last in UK my Apple News feed showing more UK based information. But I don't recall Flipboard doing the same. Will be back there in June, so will keep an eye on it to see what happens. Perhaps it depends on the news app(s). Hope Ireland and other countries get the News app. I do like it.

    The weird thing about that is here in Japan I get Japanese news as a widget. But there’s no app. I’m still puzzled by that.

    Yeah I get the widget too but no app. Apparently they’ve bought bought for magazine company and incorporating that into news perhaps they’re waiting for that and then they will spread it to more countries
