CNN Blames Apple for Repeat Notifications

Juli Clover:

Earlier this afternoon, a bug with the Apple News app caused notifications for a single CNN news story to be sent out to iPhone and iPad users over and over again.

The issue, which lasted for approximately 15 minutes, appears to have impacted all Apple News subscribers who had alerts turned on for CNN based on a slew of complaints that popped up on reddit, Twitter, and the MacRumors forums.

Here’s what it looked like. It apparently affected other news providers such as Fox as well. Push notifications have normally been described as one of the more reliable parts of iCloud. Perhaps the problem was instead with Apple News.
