Apple News Format Release Notes for iOS 13 and macOS 10.15

Learn about new features and enhancements in Apple News Format.


This feature was newly added for the latest Apple News Format release:

These features were added in previous releases:

  • Add a link to a ticker symbol in the Stocks app from your Apple News article. See SupportedURLs and SupportedInternalURLs.

  • Publish articles to Apple News from ExpressionEngine, using a plug-in from Hop Studios. See Third-Party Solutions.

  • The behavior of the ignoreDocumentMargin property of the ComponentLayout object has changed. In previous releases, this property made your content span the full width of a device screen. Starting with the current release, ignoreDocumentMargin allows a component to span the entire screen until the screen becomes wider than the document margin and width combined. To make the content span the full width of the device, you now use the new ignoreViewportPadding property of the ComponentLayout object. See Align and Position Content and What Changed in iOS 13 and macOS 10.15.

Deprecated Objects and Properties

These objects are no longer supported:

  • The AdvertisingLayout object is deprecated in favor of AutoPlacementLayout.

  • The AdvertisingSettings object is deprecated in favor of AdvertisementAutoPlacement.

  • The ContentInset object is deprecated in favor of the padding property of ComponentLayout.
