Apple News clashes for some users a few seconds after being opened on both iOS and Mac. Several of us at The Verge have been able to repeat the problem and reports of the problem also hit Twitter. In my case, the app seems fine initially, but it goes down when you roll down a little on the iPhone. Everything worked fine yesterday, so it's probably a server-side bug rather than something related to the iOS 12.2 update.
The Verge has reached Apple for comment. The company's system status page indicates that Apple News should work normally. In fact, other people do not report any issues using the app and can read articles normally.
