The new apps will be a part of the BBC’s upcoming ‘iPlay’ initiative (the name isn’t yet set in stone) and are designed to bring together the BBC’s diverse range of content suitable for kids in one easy-to-explore place, says director of BBC Children, Alice Webb. […] The new iPlayer service for children will launch at some point in 2016, but exactly when is anyone’s guess right now. – Ben Woods, The Next Web
