    In Apple News, in the last couple of days have not been able to tap the headline to be taken to the web version. Meaning we cannot read the forum highlighted comments, nor tap to see the full forum.

    Why?

    We switched over to native Apple news format and lost that link. We'll add it back.

    It is one of the best things about using MR in Apple News: being able to go to full site inside AN.

    OK thanks, good to hear. Will mark as Resolved for now.

    Well, it's a half-way house solution...

    There's a link to the forum view now, yes. But you still cannot tap the headline in Apple News to get taken to the full site with the useful featured comments, as you could before.

    Removed resolved tag.

    I'm not sure whether that's possible using the native Apple News Format we've moved to.

    In the absence of another solution, you can get there in two taps by hitting the share button and then Open in Safari.
