Hefner made use of this Twitter page for confirming that the entire uncensored Playboy catalogue will be available from March.
“Big news! Playboy-both old and new-will be available on iPad beginning in March,” Fox News quoted Hefner as tweeting on his official feed.
“The iPad version of Playboy will include the whole magazine from the first issue to the latest. Playboy on iPad will be uncensored,” he wrote.
The announcement comes despite Apple’s notorious censorship policy.
But Hefner’s statement has been clarified by Playboy spokesman Theresa Hennessey, who said that the comely centrefolds and sensual snaps from the magazine won’t be available in an iPad app after all.
“We are releasing a web-based subscription service with Bondi Digital Publishing that will give users access to every issue of Playboy both past and present,” she said.
“The service will be iPad-compatible and will utilize iPad functions.
