A good way to stay updated quickly about current events is to sign up for news alerts through a news organization. CNN.com offers email alerts for specific topics, people, locations, and issues. Apple created a news application for iOS 9 that updates preferred news stories automatically.
For example, a user can select e-mail alerts for France and Lance Armstrong. Every time there is a news story about France or Lance Armstrong published on CNN.com, the recipient receives an email alert with a link to the story. The Apple News application allows users to receive news stories from over 100 publishers in one convenient application on their iPhone.
