Apple’s new subscription plans are kinda crappy for publishers, but apparently some of them are happy the terms of the deal aren’t worse.
Some were afraid that Apple wouldn’t allow any subscriptions that didn’t go through Apple, and many delayed updates to their apps, waiting for the Apple news to drop. And there’s still no word as to whether or not they’ll have to supply back content with their subscriptions – The Daily doesn’t, though.
Either way, there’s still a lot of uncertainty. A rumour that maybe Netflix will be exempt from the subscription rules. Questions like, What if an app uses somebody else’s subscription service? Who pays Apple? [Paid Content]
