There are a three of posts worth reading if you want to work out which features unveiled in yesterday’s Apple announcements are relevant to journalists and the industry.
Jeff Sonderman states the five benefits of the iPhone 4S and iOS5 are:
1. A price drop for older models of iPhone;
2. An 8 megapixel camera;
3. Safari reading mode, enabling single-column reading and a ‘save for later’ Instapaper-style feature;
4. NewsStand, a development of interest to newspaper and magazine publishers. The Guardian explains what NewsStand means for publishers in this article written when the feature was announced in June;
5. Twitter integration.
The Next Web last night (Tuesday, October 4) published details of Apple’s US publisher partners for NewsStand. The New York Times, GQ, Wired, National Geographic are all on board, according to this post.
