Digital magazine service Texture, which was once partly-owned by Rogers Media, until Apple acquired it for a reported $485 million USD, has officially shut down.
After Apple launched its subscription news service Apple News+, which integrates digital magazines from Texture, the latter announced it would be sunset on May 28, 2019.
Launching the Texture iOS app now greets users with a landing page titled, “Goodbye Texture. Hello, Apple News+”.
“Texture has ended. But don’t worry, you can continue to read your favourite magazines, plus so much more, with Apple News+.”
Apple’s landing page highlights “hundreds of magazines”, plus access to The Star and The Wall Street Journal and Family Sharing for up to 6 family members. Apple News+ offers the first month free and afterwards, it’s $12.99 per month.
