Apple to close Texture on May 28, following launch of Apple News+

A year ago, Apple acquired the digital newsstand app Texture to form the basis of its new subscription-based service, Apple News+, which launched on Monday. As some have expected, the standalone Texture app will soon shut down as a result. According to emails sent to current Texture subscribers pointing to a FAQ on the company’s website, Texture’s last day of service will be May 28, 2019. Existing customers will be offered a one-month free trial to Apple News+ to make the jump.
A closure like this was bound to come. It doesn’t make sense for Apple to continue to operate both Texture and Apple News.
But not everyone is thrilled about this change, of course.
Specifically, Android users and other subscribers without any Apple devices will now no longer have a way to access Texture, they’ve realized. That means they’ll lose access to the service entirely when it closes down in May (unless they buy a Mac or iOS device.)


@texture I'm not happy about this. I'm able to save money by reading all my fave mags here & not having to get a separate subscription for each or buying in store. I don't have any apple products so this hurts me. You guys need to rethink this. ? pic.twitter.com/QsqGLXX3VE
