Apple News Showing Up in Canada for iPad Users on iOS 10.1

Canadians don’t have the Apple News app yet, but again the unicorn app appears to be magically popping up for some users here.

The screenshots below shared by iPhone in Canada reader Jacob, show the News app on his iPad running iOS 10.1, with region set to Canada. He said it just popped up last night, to his surprise:

Last year, Apple debuted Apple News with iOS 9, but it was limited to the U.S., but this simple workaround lets anyone get access to the app. Apple News currently is supported in the UK and Australia as the only other countries, aside from the U.S.

Canadians have some consolation though, as iOS 10 offers a News widget, which curates popular stories from various local publications.

Anyone else seeing Apple News pop up on their iOS devices? This isn’t the first time you’ve told us about it lately.
