Apple wants to force some developers to lower the price of their apps or in-app purchases

The AppStore is an environment that allows developers to easily sell their applications. With a fleet of iPhones in the world numbering in the hundreds of millions of copies, the audience is particularly attractive.

But Apple, which was already known to apply a very strict policy on its platform now intends to get involved in the accounting affairs of developers …

The brand thus points to certain prices deemed “irrational” concerning certain applications or integrated purchases.

Apple has thus implemented a new filtering which temporarily blocks certain applications integrating purchases deemed too expensive … The initial idea would be to remove the applications specialized in the scam. Many applications displayed for free thus offer in-app purchases which are in reality only a scam: the prices are not those displayed, the unsubscribe procedures are complex, billing is modulated and not indicated to users …

The brand has seen requests for refunds and complaints increase over the years … This is why it is looking for a simple and efficient way to clean up its AppStore …

Unfortunately, the module in place has already made collateral victims: many publishers or developers report having seen their applications censored because they offered subscriptions at € 39.99 per month or purchases at € 99.99 per year. .

Apple has contacted the applications in question, pointing to a price charged worthy of a “scam” that does not “reflect the value of the features and content offered to the user”, and this is obviously against the rules of the ‘AppStore.

Except that for a handful of sanctioned applications, the professional services offered are far from being a scam and Apple gives itself the right to judge the work of these latter without real discernment.
