Apple News provides a fairly hostile user experience on iOS devices and Macs by hijacking apple.news URLs for use by the Apple News app. Unfortunately, this prevents links from being opened without the app installed, and the apps themselves have a variety of other UX issues at odds with the open, linkable, searchable, sharable nature of the web. Let’s just convert those apple.news URLs back to real web addresses for sharing, okay?
