Apple is expected to launch the latest version of their mobile OS, iOS 5 at their iPhone 5 event later today, and now some interesting information has been discovered in the latest beta version of iTunes, iTunes 10.5 Beta 9.
It look like apple may intend to off app rentals in iTunes 10.5, and you would be able to rent an app from iTunes for a certain period of time, and when the time was up the app would disappear from your iPhone or iPad.
The reference to the app rentals in iTunes 10.5 Beta 9 was discovered by Sonny Dickson, and the iTunes app rentals may work in a similar way to iTunes movie rentals.
It seems like a good idea, you could pay a rental fee to test an app out before you decide to pruchase it which would be better than testing the free version as it would be the full application.
