New jailbreak tweak brings Apple News to unsupported countries
Apple News, a news reading app introduced in iOS 9 that replaces Newsstand, is only available in the United States for now, and even explicitly blocked in some areas, though the UK may be getting access very soon. However, a new jailbreak tweak enables readers to use the app from anywhere in the world now without waiting or changing regions.
The tweak is called NewsOfTheWorld, and it launched for free on the BigBoss repository this morning. Installing it will place the News app on your home screen and allow you to use all of its features. Curiously, you’ll need to reboot your phone twice after installing the tweak before it kicks in, so don’t get discouraged if you don’t see the app right away.
Once you’ve got Apple News up and running, be sure to add 9to5Mac to your library to stay up-to-date on the latest news and reviews. If you’re looking for some other cool mods to install on your newly jailbroken iPhone, we recently covered a few that will enable iPhone 6s features on your older handsets, iPod touches, and iPads including 3D Touch and Live Photos.
