It’s a possibility, at least. The latest update for Apple’s iBooks app provides some added functionality that may allow publishers the opportunity to bring their titles to the iBookstore. In addition to allowing users to organize their books into seperate categories, the app now supports fully-illustrated children’s books, photography books, and yes — even digital manga.
Of course, it remains to be seen whether any publishers actually decide to take advantage of this functionality, especially considering Apple’s stringent content policies. I’ve had several publishers mention this as a potential dealbreaker should they decide to distribute via apps like ComiXology. Still, it’d be nice to see if Apple plans on letting up on those policies in the interest of potential profits.
