Kafka says the iPad newspaper plans to launch during the week of Jan. 17. That might not be set in stone, given the complexity of a new operation like this; many expected it to launch this month, before the new year.
“The Daily” will take advantage of a new “push” subscription feature from Apple, Kafka reports, “where iTunes automatically bills customers on a weekly or monthly basis, and a new edition shows up on customers’ iPads every morning.”
To our knowledge, unless this is already a hidden feature in iOS, this may require a new version of Apple’s software to work, which means other minor features for the iPhone and iPad could launch then, too.
