On November 9 to reject A lawsuit brought by Apple in a US federal court in which the Cupertino company asked a judge to delay an earlier ruling requiring Apple to allow developers to add apps to the App Store in their apps by December 9 for users about payment methods other than the Apple-developed system applied in the App Store; Or redirect users to them, bypassing Apple and the share required by the company after transactions, also referred to as Apple tax.
In an appeal rejected by Judge Yvonne Gonzalez Rogers, Apple asked the court to suspend epic vs apple The December 9 deadline is in the court’s ruling to close the case. The company argued that it needed more time to develop new policies to protect users, developers, and Apple while offering alternative payment services. The December 9 date set in the court ruling is expected to lead to serious complications, according to the company, as they will even go to the appeals court. According to Gonzalez Rogers, in doing so, Apple did not provide the court with reasonable and trustworthy reasons to believe that allowing third-party payment systems would harm developers or users.
This will be the first time that Apple will allow it to place links in a program that will appear on its platform to purchase digital content. We need at least months to make this technically and economically possible
How much does Apple check through the App Store?
In 2020, the company earned $19 billion in commissions from apps sold through the App Store and in-app purchases using Apple’s payment method for apps. Apple is required to take a 30 percent commission from all developers who generate at least $1 million in annual sales through their app uploaded to the App Store; and 15 percent of developers with less than $1 million in traffic. True, the 15 percent commission was introduced only in January.
This commission is called the Apple tax, and it is a commission that developers can avoid by implementing third-party payment methods.
Since the launch of the App Store, Apple has banned the use and advertising of third-party payment methods on its platform. However, there has been an opportunity so far for the developer to evade Apple’s tax, for example Netflix resolved this issue by eliminating the ability to monthly billing through iTunes in 2018, and redirecting iOS registrants to the browser, where Netflix had to enter the user account’s credit card information into its own interface. As in Epic vs. The lawsuit brought by Apple revealed that Apple tried to keep Netflix afloat through the discounts of various partners, such as Netflix, running on trial devices in physical stores in the Apple Store. we know, Failed.
Apple doesn’t want others to see on its platform
US courts have ordered Apple to make changes only to payment options in the Epic lawsuit, and the ruling ruled that the company could not be named a monopoly to allow apps to be installed on its mobile operating systems only through the App Store.
However, the European Union has developed an incomplete framework (DMAAnd Digital Markets Law), which, if it comes into force in 2023, will also completely demolish the remaining walls of the apple orchard. The current form of regulatory pressure will oblige Apple to allow installation of apps from a standalone source, i.e. not the App Store. On Android and Windows, but even Apple’s macOS, sideloading is key, but the company doesn’t want to drop that ballpark on iOS and iPadOS. That’s why Apple wants to get the relevant part out of the DMA.
Craig Federighi, the company’s head of software development, at the Web Summit in Lisbon gave a lectureHe argued that all iPhone attacks would be targeted if Apple released the strict app management policy currently in place and the restriction that apps can only be installed on devices through the App Store.
Under the DMA, Apple will not be able to dictate to users what and where to download, the EU will put the decision in users’ hands. According to Federji, this is a huge mistake.
As he argued, cybercriminals are very cunning and advanced, and they can easily mislead even users who consider themselves experienced. He cited Android as an example, which he says has alarming security stats compared to iOS.
EU regulations and US court Epic vs Apple Birbing It’s common to App Store critics of the App Store system and regulations that the Cupertino company isn’t really afraid of iPhone users and the phone’s notoriety, rather it’s afraid of losing billions of dollars in revenue it generates through the App Store program.
