Apple's new subscription plans are kinda crappy for publishers, but apparently some of them are happy the terms of the deal aren't worse. Some were afraid that Apple wouldn't allow any subscriptions that didn't go through Apple, and many delayed updates to their apps, waiting for the Apple news to drop. And there's still no word as to whether or not they'll have to supply back content with their subscriptions—The Daily doesn't, though.
