Apple will allow developers to communicate about “other payment options” outside the App Store

Apple reported that it would make it easier for developers to communicate other payment options, which would help avoid the 30% App Store fee.

Apple has announced a series of changes coming to its App Store in response to a class-action lawsuit by US developers. 

One of the most notable changes is that developers will now communicate with users about alternative payment options outside the App Store ecosystem. 

This change is not a product of Apple vs. Epic Games but from a lawsuit filed against the tech giant by small developers, although the creator of Fortnite was also looking for a similar solution.

More freedom for developers

Apple says developers can “use communications, such as email, to share information about payment methods outside of their iOS app.”

This means that the company or developer can communicate via email and inform users about subscriptions outside of the App Store.

However, this change has a trick; the developers cannot communicate about different payment options within the application, the communication of other subscription options will be given only by email
