California: Who could be better at judging fake news from the authentic one than humans themselves? Apple has decided to take the charge on itself to present reliable news to its readers ahead of the mid-term elections.

Apple News app has been added with a new section that will highlight stories which will be curated by human editors and will be well-sourced and fact-based, Mashable reported.

Even as the industry is moving towards a smarter, AI-based way of curating stories, Apple is sticking to the good old way but one which is sure to counter Facebook's News app in a reliable way.
