Just recently, Apple rolled out the iOS 4.2.1 update for its iOS devices, and word is in the air that Apple has already decided a launch date for the next version of its iOS : Apple iOS 4.3.
iOS 4.3 is expected to bring in-app subscriptions, performance and maintenance upgrades along with support for News Corp’s “The Daily” – the world’s first iPad-only newspaper/magazine. Subscribers of this news journal will be the first to use the in-app subscriptions that other apps on the Apple Store will follow suite, very soon.
John Gruber of Daring Fireball reported that The Daily will be launched on Dec. 9, and if speculations about a necessary iOS update to run this magazine on iPad were true, we may possibly see the update to iOS 4.3 rolling out as early as Dec 9th.
Until now, users needed to either a free app or buy one for their device from Apple’s App Store. But with iOS 4.3 update introducing in-app subscriptions, users will be able to “subscribe” to an app (a news magazine / journal) and pay Apple (or associated firm) a periodic subscription fee for availing the corresponding services.
Although, it is completely unannounced that Apple is up to release the iOS 4.3 update this soon, the source reveals that the iOS 4.3 update was also destined to roll out mid-December this year.
