The New York Times leaves Apple News

Realises that they want too much money

Founder member of the Tame Apple Press, the New York Times, has just realised that working with its favourite company is not the dream job it anticipated.

The New York Times said it was exiting its partnership with Apple News because it failed to meet its goal of getting new subscribers and funding free adverts for Apple quality journalism.

It moaned that Apple had given it little in the way of direct relationships with readers and little control over the business. It said it hoped to instead drive readers directly to its own website and mobile app so that it could “fund quality journalism”.

Times articles were no longer appearing alongside those from other publications in the "curated" Apple News feed available on Apple devices.
