What's new in 5.1?

- We’ve added support for larger text sizes on article lists for improved accessibility (Dynamic Type)
- We’ve fixed an issue that caused some subscriptions made via in-app purchase to briefly appear as expired on the day of renewal
- We've also resolved issue introduced in the previous version which caused the app to crash for a small number of iOS 9 users.​


Proving that it can be worth paying for news, The Guardian's iPhone app is one of the best from British newspapers.
