The Today tab in the Apple News app provides a curate list of articles from a variety of news sources. This can be a great way to see what’s going on in the world by exploring content from a number of providers.
But you might find that there are certain publications appearing on that tab that you would rather not see articles from. Fortunately the News app provides a way for you to block channels so that their content isn’t shown there anymore.
