How to Open Wall Street Journal Articles from Safari in Apple News
A few weeks ago I received an extended trial of Apple News+. I’m not a big fan of subscriptions and try to avoid them, but that’s become increasingly impossible recently. There are three news websites I check daily:
- Philadelphia Inquirer
- Wall Street Journal
The Wall Street Journal’s paywall in particular has been such a pain in the ass to me that I have vowed to never subscribe to them again. Anyone who has ever subscribed and then tried to cancel their WSJ subscription can attest to why I feel that way.
But the content is good enough that it enticed me to give Apple News+, which includes WSJ content, a try. For the past month or so I’ve been reading all of the WSJ articles I wanted to (averaging 3 to 5 per day) using this clunky procedure:
- Navigate to wsj.com in Safari.
- Click on the link to the article to open in a new tab.
- Go to the article tab and copy the article title, then paste it into the Apple News app’s Search field.
- Click the result to read the article in the Apple News app.
I knew this was clunky and dumb but figured it was required due to an insistence on the WSJ. Turns out I was wrong!
To open a Wall Street Journal article from Safari in the Apple News app, you simply use the Share button and then select Open in News.
