As expected, subscription-based magazine service Texture has shut down following the launch of Apple News+ in late March.
Apple acquired Texture last year to serve as the foundation of Apple News+ and later announced that Texture would cease working after May 28. On cue, the app no longer functions as of today and points users towards Apple News+.
Unfortunately, while Apple’s notice in the Texture app says “don’t worry, you can continue to read your favorite magazines” on Apple News+, the service is only available on the iPhone, iPad, iPod touch, and Mac. Texture supported multiple platforms, including iOS, macOS, Android, and previously Windows.
With all due respect to Apple News+, I am going to miss Texture, which no longer works as of today. pic.twitter.com/yelanbPEsz

Apple News+ costs $9.99 per month in the United States, the same price as Texture charged, and $12.99 per month in Canada.
