    Pretty good, I'll certainly take a 3 month free trial.

    But, I notice that if I go to Settings > Apple ID > Subscriptions, I can't set Apple News+ to not auto renew without cancelling the subscription.  This is different from all non-Apple subscriptions, which you can opt out of auto renew and continue using for the remainder of the period.  

    I'll set myself a Reminder to cancel after 2 months and 20 days, but that's a bit shady of Apple.
    Mmm. I’ve used a lot of apps that work the same way. If you cancel the subscription it runs until the next payment date, though it’s not always clear that’s what’s happening. I often sign up to stuff and cancel straight away so I don’t get charged by mistake. 

    Don’t try it though! 
    Yes, me too.  That;'s what I'm trying to say, Apple News+ doesn't work like that; if you cancel it then it's cancelled straight away.  Check the screenshot, it's pretty explicit:


    All Apple free trails work this way... including Apple TV+, Apple Arcade, Apple Music, etc. 
    Nope. Apple Music let’s you finish out the trial period. I know this because I’ve cancelled it several times while trying to get it to use a different credit card for the family service.

    My AppleNews+ subscription renewed yesterday for $9.99.
    And, in 2 days my AppleOne Premier subscription that includes AppleNews+ kicks off.

    I'm wondering if Apple is intending to double charge me AppleNews+ as well as my Apple Music subscription?
    The fine print says:   "You will not be charged for both subscriptions" but doesn't say how.  I'm wondering if the cost of those will be prorated to reduce the charge for AppleOne?

    Paying for news...what a waste of money.
    Oh oh, cue all those who are going to start a tirade against this “Apple News Hater”!  
    Well, I am not sure if the indignation is directed towards paying for Apple News+ or towards paying for news (the noun). I suspect that it is the latter... in which case they deserve all the hate that they get 
    News in general. I have my reasons for it and am not willing to get into it.

    As for Apple News, I don’t have a problem with it except for the fact that just about every article I come across is Apple News+. I’ve been blocking channels that require their subscription, and that has so far not worked because they still show up, and more frequently, to be honest.

    I have nothing against the service but instead news itself and find news rather useless.

    I too blocked feeds requiring subscriptions or content that I didn't care about, which makes my top stories wasted space. You'd think they get the hint that I don't care about those feeds/channels but no I guess they think I'll change my mind and unblock them :) b/c I'll feel like I'm missing something important. Either way it appears Apple removed the option for me to block some pay feeds.
