Tech giant Apple has announced that a new section will be added to the Apple News app. The section will highlight stories curated by human editors and will be fact-based and well-sourced, said a press release.
This decision by the 945-billion dollar company comes ahead of the 2018 mid-term elections in the United States.
“An election is not just a contest; it should raise conversations and spark national discourse. By presenting quality news from trustworthy sources and curating a diverse range of opinions, Apple News aims to be a responsible steward of those conversations and help readers understand the candidates and the issues” said Lauren Kern, Editor-In-Chief of Apple News.
Even though the tech-industry is moving towards an AI-based way of curating content, Apple is sticking to the good old way of having a human touch, which shall counter Facebook’s News app in a reliable way.
