It looks like iOS 5 – due to be released this fall and chock full of cool new features for the iPad and iOS – will offer a nicer way to organize our iPad (and iOS) newspaper and magazine subscriptions.

I initially thought it was a new app, like iBooks, when I heard it mentioned at the WWDC 2011 keynote today, but it’s just a rather special folder by the looks of it. There will also be a new place in the App Store just for newspaper and magazine subscriptions – and the Newsstand folder has a button that links straight to it.

The slickest feature of Newsstand is that it will automatically update titles in the background as new issues become available for them.

I’m a huge fan of iPad newspapers and magazines, so I’m very much looking forward to seeing this new feature when iOS 5 is released.
