In his position in Cupertino he supervised relations with publishers and advertisers. In the Apple hierarchy, Liz Schimel responded to Peter Stern, head of services, who in turn refers to Eddy Cue, Senior Vice President of Internet Software and Services.
In the absence of an official Apple release that may never arrive, the leak of the Apple News executive comes from sources reported by Bloomberg: the Cupertino multinational is already looking for a leading name in the publishing world for the vacant position.
For now, the subscription and Apple News + content, including quality selected news from the main newspapers in the world plus the digital versions of numerous newspapers, magazines and magazines, available exclusively in the USA, Canada, the United Kingdom and Australia.
Without a doubt, Apple is working to extend the geographical availability of Apple News + but according to many, the move that could make a difference also in terms of paying subscribers, that of creating a single package that includes several Apple subscriptions for music, television, news and more. still at a discounted price more affordable than the sum of the individual subscriptions.
