Putting weeks of rumours to rest that said Apple was planning to enter the magazine distribution business with its own curated subscription service, the company is now talking to some of the biggest newspapers in the US about adding their stories to Texture — the magazine app it acquired in March.

“Apple executives, led by content boss Eddy Cue, have reached out to the New York Times, Wall Street Journal and the Washington Post about joining the app, according to people familiar with the conversations, which began this summer,” Recode reported on Friday.

This comes at a time when the Cupertino-headquartered firm is ramping up its interest in content sales and subscription.

“It is putting at least $1 billion into a slate of TV shows it expects to start showing next year, and many people believe Apple would like to market a supersised subscription offering that bundles music, video and news together,” the report added.

Apple has responded to a tweet by a user who complained about the disappearance of purchased movies from the iTunes library.

The tweet by Anders G da Silva — who recently relocated from Australia to Canada — said three movies he had purchased from iTunes had been removed from his account and he was unable to play or re-download them, Apple Insider reported on Sunday.

“After reviewing the case I have noticed that the content provider has removed these movies from the Canadian Store. Hence these movies are not available in the Canada iTunes Store at this time,” a Senior Advisor from Customer Care Support at iTunes Store tweeted in reply to da Silva.

Apple Support acknowledged that the movies were gone and attempted to rectify the issue by providing rental credits to rent a movie priced up to $5.99, far off the value of the missing films, the report added.

“If you change your country setting, some movies may not be available to re-download from the movie store if the version you purchased isn’t also available in the new country. If needed, you can change your country setting back to your prior country to re-download those movies,” a CNET report quoted an Apple spokesperson as saying.

“Apple is constantly working with content providers to expand the iTunes Store catalogue and to make more items available in more countries,” said Apple Support. (IANS)
