Apple NewsOfTheWorld

If you live in a region outside of the United States and wish to access Apple News, there’s now a jailbreak tweak method for doing so. There is a way to access Apple News in restricted regions on non-jailbroken devices, but that involves changing region settings on your iPhone, which can be annoying, and it can act finicky as well.

NewsOfTheWorld is a brand new jailbreak tweak, from well-known developer Hamza Sood, that makes it easy to get Apple News in all regions. All it takes is a jailbroken iOS 9 device, and a couple of reboots.

You can find NewsOfTheWorld available free of charge on Cydia’s BigBoss repo. As mentioned, after you install the tweak, you’ll need to reboot your iPhone twice in order to make the News app appear. There are no options or settings to configure once you install the tweak.

If you’ve been itching for Apple News on your iOS 9 device and you happen to be jailbroken, then this is the route to take. Hamza is a great developer and has an excellent track record in the community.

Are you planning on trying NewsOfTheWorld?
