Apple censors nudity in iPad editions of mags

Dazed & Confused nicknames its iPad version the 'Iran edition'.

Magazines planning to launch iPad editions will have to censor themselves to pass through Apple's app store.

An insider at the British lifestyle magazine Dazed & Confused told the gadget-and-tech-review website Shiny Shiny that their staff had nicknamed the magazine's iPad edition the "Iran edition" because of censorship in iTunes, Apple's digital media platform and apps store.

Lads magazines such as Nuts and fashion glossies such as Vice may have to cut down on nudity, especially nipples and bare bottoms, in photographs and fashion shoots for their iPad editions, Shiny Shiny said.
