Hugh Hefner has today revealed via Twitter that Playboy will be releasing an iPad app in March, and that it will be “uncensored”. What makes this story on Boy Genius Report so interesting is that if that really is the case, and the app really is uncensored and featuring every single page of a regular Playboy issue, including the centrefolds, this could herald a change in Apple’s attitude to adult content in the app store. Playboy already has an iOS app of course, which is available on iPhone, iPod touch and iPad, but it is famously devoid of all nudity. Could Apple really be about to relax its stance on adult content in the App Store? And could this have something to do with the forthcoming magazine subscription service Apple is hoping to introduce, or with Apple’s partnership with Rupert Murdoch, some of whose own publications feature nudity, on The Daily project? We’ll have to wait and see when the iPad Playboy app appears in March!
