Navigating the app, I was able to find a surprising number of local stories and features from news sources Including the aforementioned outlets, BlogTO, NOW, and Toronto Life are all available through the app.
Interestingly enough, Apple seemed to have quietly rolled out this update. Granted, the company has been continuously expanding the local reach of Apple News to users. Though, it’s curious as this is the first major expansion in the Canadian market. Previously, Apple News has expanded its curated local content in San Fransisco, Los Angeles, Houston, and other major cities in the US.
