Back in May, 2010 Steve Jobs seemed adamant that Apple would remain porn-free he even made this statement “You can download porn, your kids can download porn. That’s a place we don’t want to go — so we’re not going to go there”, he even mocked Android by saying “You know, there’s a porn store for Android”, if Hefner’s “uncensored” claims are true it looks like Apple has changed its tune.
PCWorld point out that if Apple allow nudity in the Playboy app it may open up the App Store to a wide-range of adult-centric applications, we wonder how this will affect Apple’s popularity and the implications this may bring.
What do you make of this news? Do you think that Apple should allow an app to show uncensored images on the iPad?
