Just when we thought Apple had done away with charging for their iOS updates after revealing that iOS4 was free even for iPod Touch owners, a big fat rumour has been passed to Stuff.tv from a developer working on a future iPad app that the update will now be forcing our hands into our pockets for it, just like the old days.

Stuff.tv contacted Apple over the matter, and as expected received a ‘no comment’ as a response. I’m not quite sure how I feel about this if it’s true. I bought my iPad thinking that the update would be free. I know I wasn’t led to believe it would be free, but just the price of the device made me think this.

I’ve been looking forward to it ever since buying the iPad, and even more since buying the iPhone 4 and using multitasking. Being a paid update won’t make me not update it though. I’ll just be doing it with a bit of a grudge towards Apple for a while.

What do you think of this, and how much do you think Apple would charge if it end up being true?
