Apple Inc. is developing a digital newsstand for publishers that
would let them sell magazines and newspapers to consumers for use
on Apple devices, said two people familiar with the matter.
The newsstand, designed particularly for the iPad, would be
similar to Apple’s iBook store for electronic books, said the
people, who declined to be identified because the negotiations are
private. The newsstand would be separate from Apple’s App Store,
where people can buy some publications now, they said.
