  • About Apple Newsstand

    • What is a digital magazine?

      A Digital magazine is an electronic replica of your favorite Summit magazines. Its main advantage is you can read it on different platforms (PC, laptop, MACs, iPad and Android devices). While there will be some interactive elements from time to time, these will not be regular features of the digital magazine.

    • What devices can I access Summit Digital Magazines?

      Summit Digital magazines are available through PC, laptop, MACs, iPad and Android devices.

    • What is Apple Newsstand?

      Apple Newsstand is specialized folder found in every iPad and iPhone with iOS version 5 and above (its icon is the one that looks like a tiny bookshelf). This bookshelf stores specialized magazine apps called Newsstand apps.

      You search for and download these Newsstand apps in the App Store just like any other app, but they will show up in the Newsstand bookshelf once downloaded. A majority of Summit’s titles can be found in the App Store, and they are free of charge.

    • If the Newstand App is free, does that mean the magazine is also free?

      Every Newsstand app is free because it is simply a container. Inside this container are single issues, and an option to subscribe. If you decide to buy an issue or a subscription, you will be charged through your iTunes store account.

      If you buy a single issue, the app will ask for your iTunes store password and then will start downloading the issue.

      If you buy a subscription, the app will ask for your iTunes store password and then will start downloading the latest issue. You will then be able to download every new issue that comes into the app for the next 12 months. Your subscription will auto-renew every 12 months unless you decide to end it.

    • How do I know when there are new issues?

      To see if there are new issues, you must have internet access so that the app can update its content. New issues are released every 1st of the month.

    • What is the difference between Zinio and Apple Newsstand?

      Zinio is an app available for iPhone, iPad, Android tablets, Android smartphones, PC and Mac. It is basically a digital storefront for different magazines that is within a single app. Apple Newsstand on the other hand, is a specialized folder found on every iPad and iPhone that stores specialized magazine apps called Newsstand apps. Inside these apps you will find the single issues of that title and an option to subscribe. In effect, each Newsstand app is like a digital storefront, but with only one title.

    • What are the payment options?

      The only way to pay for issues in Apple Newsstand apps is through the credit card attached to your iTunes store account.

    • There is Newsstand on my iPhone. Can I get my magazines there?

      Currently there are no iPhone versions of our Newsstand apps. We are working on updating our apps to support the iPhone.

    • What does the " Archive " button do?

      Once you download an issue, you may chose to archive it so it does not take up space on your iPad. When you press the archive button, it will dissapear and be replaced with a Download button. This means that the issue has been stored in the cloud, and you may re-download it again if you want to view it.

    • If I change to a new iPad, what happens to my purchases?

      All your purchases are tied to your iTunes store account. Once you download the Newsstand app to your new device, you will be asked to restore your old purchases.

    • Are the Newsstand apps compatible with the Retina display of the 3rd and 4th generation iPads?

      Currently, Retina displays are supported only by YES! Magazine, FHM Philippines and Cosmopolitan Philippines. We are working to have Retina compatibility for all titles soon.
