Those with an Apple developer account can download iOS 9 beta 3, and therefore experience Apple’s new Flipboard-style news app, News, right now.

The problem is, if you’re not in a supported country, like the U.S. or U.K., you may not see the News app in your beta 3 installation.

Luckily, there’s a quick and easy workaround that you can make happen right on your iOS device.

First up, make sure you’ve got an Apple developer account, then update your iPhone or iPad to the latest iOS 9.0 beta 3 version. You can find it in your Settings app, under General, Software Updates.

Once that’s all sorted, if you don’t see the News app on your home screen, you can fix it pretty easily.

Tap to launch Settings on your iOS device, then tap on General. Swipe down to Language & region, and tap through to find the Region Formats section.

Simply tap on Region to select United States, and then back out of Settings. You may need to reboot your iPad or iPhone (hold down the Sleep/Wake button, Slide to Power Off, then hold the Sleep/Wake button again after your device goes dark) to make it appear.

This way, you don’t have to mess with your iTunes account region at all; just change the Region settings right in your Settings app.
