Apple's still-in-beta operating systems will automatically redirect News+ subscribers to the Apple News app when they click on links from a News+ publisher. Tony Haile (who founded the ad-free subscription news service Scroll) tweeted about the change this morning, and I've been able to replicate it myself. Woah, I wonder how many publishers in Apple News+ realize that the new iOS14 and MacOS Big Sur are by default intercepting traffic to their sites and sending it to the Apple News app instead.
Of the big three Apple operating systems, watchOS arguably gets the least love. On the whole, the Apple Watch’s software is often overlooked, as smartwatch users tend to focus attention on the addition of new hardware sensors and the like.
S&P 500 futures hit an all-time high on Tuesday, bringing the benchmark index to the verge of levels last seen before the coronavirus crisis hit in February, causing one of Wall Street's most dramatic crashes in history. The benchmark index was on track to open just 0.5% below its peak from February 19, when investors started dumping shares in anticipation of what proved to be the biggest slump in the U.S. economy since the Great Depression. The tech-heavy Nasdaq has led the charge, boosted by "stay-at-home winners" Amazon.com, Netflix Inc and Apple Inc and futures in the index were up just over half a percent.
