Watching Apple since 1999. I don't say what they should do. I say what they might do. They sometimes do.

    This feature will be gone with the release of iOS 11.

      That’s a shame! You’re quite right — instead on iOS 11 the @ icon has been replaced with a clock which lets you see your history.

    Typical ignorant Apple – take away features without providing a replacement. I wish Apple fans wouldn’t just be like “oh that’s okay, what a shame, it was cool” – take action, contact Apple and tell them off for removing native RSS support from both their mobile and desktop. Stand up for yourselves!

    There is (was, at the rate things are going) no better way to do a decentralized notification system for entries on websites. Is Apple in cahoots with Facebook, forcing us to only publish our updates on their joke of a website? Seriously, what is better than getting an RSS update in your email program of choice (I note Apple took out the RSS subscription option from macOS mail, too) when your favorite blog posts an update? What replacement is there for this?

    You can still do this with Outlook. You can still do this with Thunderbird. Just….not Mail. Well done Apple. Well done.

    I am using urlwatch (find on GitHub) to watch RSS pages for changes and be notified via pushover. The only issue is that after I receive a notification I have no way to open the RSS url and see the article. The only application that will open RSS is Apple News and not every RSS is on Apple News… so how to read an RSS page without an app?
