Apple will Now let App Store Developers Talk to their Customers

Apple announce that they have reached a settle in a lawsuit filed against it by developers in the US. The new agreement which is yet to be approved states that developers will be able to share information on how to pay for purchases outside of their iOS app or the App Store. 

Which means they can tell customers about payment options that aren’t subject to Apple commissions. The settlement also includes more pricing tiers and a new transparency report about the app review process.

Apple said it is “clarifying that developers can use communications, such as emails, to share information about payment methods outside of their iOS app. As always, developers will not pay Apple a commission on any purchases taking place outside of their app or the App Stores.”

The settlement would lift this rule for all app categories, enabling developers to tell consenting users about payment methods that avoid Apple’s commissions.
