Apple introduces new billing service

A whole host of App Store content – including games – can now offer users a subscription service as part of Apple's billing service.

The payment option was first debuted as part of News Corp's digital newspaper The Daily. It will use the same infrastructure currently used for in-game purchases with subscriptions available in weekly, monthly, bi-monthly, quarterly, bi-yearly or annual increments.

Personal subscriptions can be managed and cancelled from a user's Apple account page.
