Apple News has more users than we thought

Tim Cook revealed the latest Apple News user figures in Apple's earnings call.

Talking of Apple News, 9to5Mac pulled an interesting tidbit from Tim Cook's comments in today's Apple earnings call:

Cook shared on the earnings call that the company saw its monthly active user rate for Apple News hit 85M. Apple News rolling out to more countries will also help drive growth. Apple is also rumored to be planning a paid news subscription service launching as early as this spring.

That's a pretty decent number, given that Apple News is still only available in the US, UK and Australia. Canada appears to be next in line.

Apple News has slowly become a stealth success - and Apple appears to have some interesting plans for it this year. One to watch.
