Two weeks ago, Apple had announced its Apple News Plus subscription plans for users in the US and Canada. In just the first 48 hours of its release, Apple News Plus had received over 200,000 subscribers.

According to the New York Times, Apple News Plus received more subscribers compared to its previous media aggregation app called “Texture”. The Texture app was eventually taken down by Apple after it released the Apple News Plus.
