    Spotlight is pretty random at what news come up, and some keywords yield zero news. You have to set your region to the US to get the app anywhere else in the world.

    ...And the text is tiny. Smaller than the text in the status bar, it can't be changed, and I'm expected to read it on a phone.

    Really, Apple?

    Does the News app support the dynamic text size setting? Might try changing that if you find it too hard to read.

    Confirmed, the News app will change the text size if you go to Settings > Display & Brightness > Text Size

    And neither am I :p My vision is at least 20/20.

    I have zero problems simply reading the text, but I feel that it's stupidly small for an app that was designed to immerse yourself in long texts. It leads to fatigue and your eyes losing track of progress.

    Load up pretty much any of the articles on the website itself, rather than, and you'll also find that every website automatically has much more reasonably sized text.

    It doesn't support dynamic text on RSS feed. Yes, the home pages are fine but the article itself is not affected. I think it's a bug of News.
    On Apple format though (like CNN) it's supported fully and is gorgeous.
