    Apple has today officially announced the launch of its new subscription service on the App Store, which it says will be available to all publishers of content-based apps, including magazines, newspapers, video, and music. Apple also confirms what we all knew by now anyway, that this is the same system as launched by News Corp.’s The Daily app, although that app has yet to actually start charging. Here’s Apple CEO Steve Jobs explaining how it all works:

    Apple goes on to say that as far as Apple is concerned, customer privacy is paramount – if you buy a subscription through the App Store, you’ll be given the option to give the publisher your name, email and zip code when you subscribe, and that information will then be governed by the publisher’s privacy policy, not Apple’s.
