While I was glad to see that scrolling through the followed and suggested feeds is now possible, I'm not pleased with some other changes.
I no longer seem to be informed whether a news topic is Apple News Plus only. Before, that information was presented along with the headline. I do not subscribe, and find it tedious to try to read something I have no access to.
I am seeing many repeated stories in the feed. This was a rare occurrence in the previous version, but now seems common place.
Navigation by heading is still sorely missed.
I'm seriously considering moving to another news aggregator, or, maybe this is a sign I need to take a news break.
