To do this, double-click your Home button to open the App Switcher. Find the Apple News app and swipe up on it to force quit. Then open the app again and see if it works.

If that still doesn’t fix the issue, then you might need to update iOS on your device. To do this, go to Settings > General > Software Update and see if there are any available updates for iOS. If there are any updates available, install them and see if they fix the issue with Apple News.

Finally, if none of these steps worked for you, then one last option would be to delete the app from your device completely and reinstall it from the App Store. This should solve any issues that you’re having with Apple News.
