Sync Apple News App on all devices / Mac, iPhone, iPad [Fix / How-To]

Available only in Australia, Canada, United Kingdom (UK) and United States (USA), the application Apple News / Apple News + has attracted many fans since its launch. Despite regional restrictions, application Apple News can be installed anywhere in the world, if in iOS, iPadOS or MacOS is set to UK, Canada, Australia or USA. The setting is in "Settings"/"System Preferences"→"Language & Region"

The application itself closely resembles a "feed reader"Modern, in which Apple displays news from several sources previously verified. The user can choose to receive news only from the publications accepted by Apple in the News platform, and according to its sphere of interest. From information from technology to fashion, culinary, policy and more.

Apple News however, it has a pretty narrow problem for Apple device owners who want to synchronize information sources on all devicesCPCs. Normally, Apple News accepts synchronization in iCloud, which means news feeds, saved news feeds and areas of interest should be available on all Apple devices that it is authenticated the same iCloud account. Unfortunately, this is not the case for many iPhone, iPad and Mac owners. Although it is checked to synchronize in iCloud, the news does not reach all the devices and it seems that between them there is no synchronization of the Apple News application.

How to synchronize the Apple News application on multiple Apple devices - Mac, iPad and iPhone

First, on all devices we must have the same iCloud account authenticated. The second step is to check if in iCloud you have checked the synchronization for the News application. Check this out in "Settings"→ press Apple ID (first option) → “iCloud"

In the iCloud settings, scroll to the News application and see if it is checked.

From here there are two different scenarios. If unchecked, or leave it like that. Check as on the other device you want to synchronize. Uncheck it from there, then restart both devices.

When unchecked it will ask you if the content is stored locally.

Click "Delete from My Mac", Close all applications, then restart the device. Power Off / Power On.

In the scenario in which it is unchecked and on the second device, it is sufficient restart deviceCPCs.

After restart, go to the application again News in iCloud and select synchronization. Put the indicator on the green.

After this step, made on all devices that have the same iCloud account, synchronization of news feeds and preferences from the application Apple News it will be done without problems.

It seems that for now there is a bug that does not allow Apple News / Apple News + synchronization. Unfortunately it persists from iOS 12 and macOS Mojave to iOS 13 and macOS Catalina. We hope that Apple will solve this problem in the near future and expand Apple News in several countries.
Not to mention discrimination, at least free services, should be available in all countries where Apple sells its devices. That is if the American company considers that all people are equal have the same fundamental rights.
