Apple showed off a redesigned update to its News app for iOS 10 at today’s Worldwide Developer Conference in San Francisco. Along with bringing so-called subscriptions to the over 2,000 publications available within the app, the update also delivers breaking news notifications.

The redesign features a less cluttered interface, and breaks news up into topics that propagate based on reading habits. Subscriptions, meanwhile, allow users to have all of a publication’s content pushed directly to them.

Finally, the breaking news notifications behave like any other system notifications, appearing on the lock screen and pull-down notifications panel.

The reworked news app will be a stock feature in iOS 10, which ships (and updates) in September.
