Apple: Won’t Charge IOS Apps Providing Online Classes And Group Events

Last year, Apple announced a new developer platform that would cut the fee in half for small companies with revenue of up to $1 million

Amid the ongoing pandemic, Apple has announced not to charge iOS apps providing online classes and group events until December 31, 2021.

The earlier deadline for requiring in-app purchases for such iOS apps was June 30.

Last year, to support apps that adapted services from in-person to digital due to the Covid-19 pandemic, Apple temporarily deferred the requirement to offer paid online group event services through in-app purchase.

“As the world continues to recover from the pandemic, we’d like to support the communities that are still providing digital services in place of in-person group events by extending the deadline further to December 31, 2021,” the company said in an update on Thursday.

The new guidelines allow such apps offering real-time person-to-person services between two individuals (for example, tutoring students, medical consultations, real estate tours, or fitness training) to use purchase methods other than in-app purchases.

Apple last year unveiled a new developer program to reduce the charge by half for small businesses that earn up to $1 million in revenue from January 1, 2021, after facing flak for the App Store’s 30 percent standard commission for paid app revenue and in-app purchases.

The developers in its new small business program now receive 15 percent more from sales of their apps on App Store.

The vast majority of developers on the App Store who sell digital goods and services are eligible for the new program.

If a participating developer surpasses the $1 million thresholds, the standard commission rate will apply for the remainder of the year. (IANS/KB)
