    I just updated my iPhone 6 to the latest iOS 9 beta (beta 3) and instantly realized that the new News app was missing from my home screen. After searching my Settings app it directed me to iCloud settings. I loaded up the iCloud settings and found that it was missing from there also. Has anyone else had this problem?

    Go to Settings -> General -> About and post your build number. It's right by the version number. Also, do you happen to be in the UK?

    It appears that the News app is currently a "US only" proposition.

    I do believe that Apple News will be available in the US, UK and Australia at launch.

    News will be available worldwide at launch, however with the launch of iOS 9 beta 3 today with News it is a US only exclusive. I would expect the public beta of iOS 9 will have the News app for all countries.

    During WWDC, Apple News will launch starting in the United States, United Kingdoms and Australia, however its seems that in Beta 3 Apple is beginning in the US and then migrate to the UK followed by Australia. It seems that Apple wants to work out the kinks of News in the US first, and once developers/users are pleased then the rollout will continue.

    Settings>General>Languages & Region>Region>change to United States. Do a Reboot of your iPhone and it'll show. Had to do this in the UK.

    Be aware that it disappears again if you change your region back.

    And you may need to do so under Australia, as well.

    Not US exclusive. I live in Italy and received the NEWS app with the beta OTA update. My developer account is tied to Italy.
