Apple to Intro a Magazine Template for iPad Developers?

This is interesting news. Rumor has it that Apple is working on a magazine template that will leverage Apple Human Interface Guidelines and its developer toolkit, Xcode. The move is to help push forth a more unified and intuitive magazine app that users will instantly know how to use no matter who publishes it. The problem currently is that digital magazine publishers have been struggling to create compelling apps for the tablet platform and Apple feels that it needs to step in and point everyone in the right direction. If I was a betting man: I’d say The Daily is the place where you should be looking, if you want to get glimpse as to what the future of digital magazines will look like on the iPad — being that Apple helped News Corp. create their app.
