Important announcements for publishers from Apple’s WWDC 2016 include more interactive notifications

At Apple’s WWDC 2016 keynote on Monday, a few new software developments were announced that are of interest to news publishers. iOS 10 will include the capability for more interactive notifications: Users will be able to view short videos and other “graphical updates” from the lock screen, and they’ll be able to tap on a notification for more information, a place where publishers could include a short story summary. Apple News will also get into push notifications in iOS 10, with “the most important stories delivered right to your lock screen.”

+ Apple News will also get a redesign in iOS 10: The new version of Apple News will include the ability for paid subscriptions, with a bolder interface more similar to Apple Music (MacRumors)
