Apple has changed part of the App Store rules for developers

As part of a settlement with developers who filed a class action lawsuit against Apple back in 2019, the company agreed to make a number of changes to the App Store rules.

The most significant relief is that third-party developers will now be able to inform users about alternative payment methods for a subscription. True, it will be possible to do this only outside the application. For example, using e-mail distribution.

Apple also promised to share various useful data with developers. In particular, the company will publish a special annual report, which will show various statistical information related to the application review process. From the document, you can find out the number of applications rejected for publication in the App Store, the root causes, the number of accounts disabled, some data about search queries, etc.

In addition, Apple promised to expand the number of price ranges. If earlier developers could choose from about 100 options, then in the future this number will grow to 500. Company representatives promise to implement this change by the end of next year.

As part of the settlement, Apple also promised to extend its small business support program. Under this initiative, developers who earn less than a million dollars a year from their apps are paid a reduced commission. The program will run over the next three years.
