New York Times issues update to enable in-app subscription models for iPhone and iPad

The New York Times iPhone and iPad app has just received an update that allows users to subscribe via in-app purchase. Changes were made to many in-app subscription services after Apple changed the guidelines. The New York Times is one of many news publications that were affected by the changes. The update will now allow users to choose from three new in-app purchase schemes -

  • $15 - iPhone + web content
  • $20 - iPad + web content
  • $35 - All access (iPhone, iPad, and web)

These fees will be on a monthly basis and will recur as long as you're subscribed. This is similar to how other online publications have recently dealt with many of Apple's subscription policy changes. Anyone planning on buying into the new subscription model NYT is offering?
