What's New can't be disabled, but you can restrict its access to background data which will save your internet data and some battery as a result.

 

Go to Settings -> Apps -> What's new -> Data usage -> Background data -> Disable

 

This way the app won't use any internet data in the background, only when you open the app itself.

What's New spam?!

An ad for Transformers that makes my phone beep and vibrate?!  I paid good money for my phone.  What are you thinking?!

Re: What's New spam?!

Without loyal customers, who do you think is going to buy the next generation of Sony phones, let alone recommend them to their friends?

 

Stop sabotaging your future.
