Condé Nast – the company responsible for various publications, including The New Yorker, Vogue and Vanity Fair – will reportedly adopt Apple’s in app subscription policy in the near future, according to one source.
Currently, several of the company’s publications are already available to purchase on the App Store. Among these are The New Yorker Magazine and Vanity Fair iPad Edition. However, both apps currently do not support Apple’s subscription policy – something that will reportedly be enforced by the Cupertino, CA company by the end of June. Instead, users of both apps buy single issues for $4.99 each.
According to Apple Insider, this is soon to change: A “source” recently told the website that Condé Nast will add support for Apple’s in app subscription model to its digital publications “by the end of May.” The company will begin by making The New Yorker in app subscription friendly “as early as next week.”
And, what’s more, Condé Nast will reduce the single issue price of its magazines from $3.99-$4.99 to $1.99, which is definitely great news. A similar move was recently made by Hearst just the other day.
