The limited success of Apple News + forces Apple to send SPAM to its users

Apple News +

Apple has automatically started sending out a daily newsletter titled Good Morning, where they are shown the main news, analysis and articles extracted from the different sources that are available in Apple News +, a newsletter to which none of the subscribers of this service has subscribed.

Apple allows users of the service to subscribe to an email alerts service where they receive the main news every day, a voluntary alert service initially, since all the users of this service have been subscribed automatically.

This new newsletter is appearing in the email accounts associated with Apple IDs, simply by being a subscriber to Apple News or Apple News +. This newsletter not only shows the headline of the most interesting articles, but also includes a brief summary of the news, inviting us to click if we want more information.

In addition, it also includes a special section dedicated to content available on Apple News +, a service that is priced at $ 9,99 per month. The high weight of the Apple News + section is being considered by many users as SPAM.

It is likely that for some users this newsletter with the summary of the most important news is interesting and allows you to quickly access what is really important. Nevertheless, Apple's unilateral decision to include all users Apple News and Apple News + is pitiful and shows how desperate Apple has come with this service.

It is not easy to unsubscribe

Any company worth its salt adds a link to a web page in their newsletters that allows us to unsubscribe quickly. This link does not appear in all emails. But the most worrying thing is that in those that it does, it returns a 403 error, as the guys from Cult of Mac have been able to verify.

The fastest way to stop receiving newsletters, ands access our iCloud account and uncheck the box Apple News inside section Apple messages. It seems that Apple has moved to desperate measures after seeing like 9 months after its launch, the number of subscribers remains the same.
