How to delete channels and topics from the iOS News app’s favorites list

When I fired up iOS 9 and launched the News app for the first time, I added a LOT of channels and topics to the Favorites list. However, I soon found out that I didn’t really want all them. If you did the same and want to remove a channel or genre from the Favorites list, launch News and do the following:

  • Go to the Favorites tab.
  • Tap the Edit button.
  • Tap the X button in the corner of the channel or topic you want to remove.

On the iPhone 6s and 6s Plus, you can use 3D Touch to accomplish this if you:

  • Press a Favorite to look at it.
  • Slide up to view options.
  • Tap the Remove from Favorites button.
