The News app on your iPhone can be a great place for you to read about current events. It lets you customize your news fee with a lot of different topics and sources, allowing you to see the news that is relevant or important to you.
But as you set up and experiment with Apple’s News app, you may eventually find that you are just getting too much news, or that there is a specific channel that you don’t like. Fortunately your News channels are something that can be edited, and you can delete ones that you don’t want to see anymore. Our tutorial below will show you how to delete a channel from Apple News.
