Last Friday, local time, Apple updated its App Store approval rules to loosen certain constraints
on live gaming platforms, educational courses and developers need to use its in-app purchasing method.
Apple changed the criteria for reviewing the App Store after developers opposed the company’s App Store approval policies and because of Apple ‘s regulations, rivals including Microsoft and Google’s Alphabet declined to introduce streaming media on iPhone. Plateform games.
Although the revision of the App Store review guidelines is not significant, it is assumed that Apple is listening to app developers’ concerns and those concerns say that the App Store’s review guidelines are too restrictive. The App Store’s 15 to 30 percent number of developers in this adjustment has not increased, but the reach has been narrower. The rake’s items contain updates from programs, in-app transactions and subscription utilities.
The updating of the rules would not impact Epic Games’ legal conflict with Apple. Tim Sweeney, Epic Games’ chief executive, opposed the new guidance of Apple and said it would not improve the gaming market power of Apple.
On Friday, Apple said it would allow streaming game companies to build catalog apps, which Apple had previously excluded. Of game in the catalog must, however, also be turned into its own separate product, and use the in-app payment scheme of Apple. Apple typically collects 30 per cent of the payment system ‘s revenue.
Google and Microsoft did not respond immediately to requests for comment on the aforementioned news.
The criteria for assessment often include one-to-one face-to – face virtual courses that will circumvent the payment structure of Apple. However, since it is a route for non-individual groups, Apple’s payment system must also be used to make up for it. Apple has traditionally stipulated that it will use Apple’s in-app payment system in virtual classrooms.
The updated new guidelines also allow for business applications and technical services while selling to companies to bypass Apple’s payment system. However, Apple’s payment system is also needed when it is selling to individuals or families. Apple has claimed that “whether there is no order within the app or if it is necessary to buy outside the app,” a free stand-alone app attached to a paying out-of-app service (such as email or cloud computing services) would not need to use the payment system of Apple.
Earlier, paying e-mail service provider Hey openly blamed the App Store for not approving their free updates.
