How to get the US-centric News app on your iPhone in less than a minute

No complicated steps involved, all it takes is one simple setting switch

When Apple announced iOS 9, they placed quite a bit of emphasis on the News app as one of the update's key new features.

Essentially, it's all your favourite news picks presented in the typically minimalist Apple fashion within one app.

You might have felt a little cheated when you upgraded to iOS 9 and didn’t see the News app that Apple promised. But that’s because it’s US-centric.

All is not lost. Fortunately, there’s a way around it. And it’s so ridiculously simple, you’ll want to tell all your friends about it.

How to get the News app

Obviously, you'll need to have updated to iOS 9 for this to work. Go to Settings, then General. Tap on Language & Region and switch your Region to United States. Twiddle your thumbs while waiting for your new settings to kick in.

You'll be transported back to your Home page once they do. See something different? That's the News app waiting for you to load it up with your daily reads.

That's it. That's really all it takes. See, we weren't kidding when we said it's ridiculously easy.
