MacNN reports the upcoming iPhone OS 3.0 will have parental controls, and believes this feature may lead to looser restrictions for the application store.
Apple may be ready to loosen rules regarding objectionable content with the upcoming iPhone OS 3.0. The company recently rejected Newspapers, an app developed by Makayama, for containing objectionable content, according to iLounge. The app provides access to a variety of content from other publishers such as the New York Times and Frankfurter Algemeine.

The offensive material was contained in the Page 3 section of The Sun which includes images of topless women. Although the content was accessed from a third-party source, and not directly from Newspapers, the app initially did not make it through the approval process.
