Apple says that it will leverage a diverse set of news sources to provide this information, including ABC News, Axios, CNN, Fox News, NBC News, Politico, The Hill, The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, The Washington Post, TIME, USA Today, Vox and others.

The candidate information is curated and organized by Apple’s team of News editors, and will be found in the Top Stories section of its Apple News app.

To do so, they’ll just click the “follow” button for the candidate in the app, then will receive any breaking news around that candidate as well as see ongoing news coverage about the candidate appear in their Apple News Today feed and elsewhere within the News app.

But Apple has instead hired an editorial team of former journalists to organize and curate the news that tens of millions of people read.

Apple has taken the opposite approach from Facebook when it comes to providing easy access to news and information to its users.

It will then include articles and video highlights from NBC News, as well as fact-checking, reactions, and key onstage moments and takeaways, says Apple in an announcement about the new feature.

In addition, users can personalize their experience by tracking their favorite candidates in Apple News.

Democratic presidential candidates ahead of the first Democratic debates hosted on June 26 and June 27 by NBC News, MSNBC, and Telemundo in Miami, Florida.

The News team doesn’t write its own stories, but plays a large role in selecting the stories that people first see when they open the app.

Facebook fired its news editors then turned its “trends” section over to an algorithm, before giving up and killing it altogether.
