A month ago Facebook decided to touch Apple because of the notorious 30% share that the Cupertin giant takes from all purchases within iOS applications. Then it was about a new feature in the Facebook application – paid online events.
Against the background of quite a serious confrontation between Apple and Epic Games, it was quite unexpected to learn that the first decided to temporarily stop taking a 30% share of all paid online events in any application for iOS.
Apple even explained its action. The company said that the decision was made against the background of the pressure that companies are experiencing due to the pandemic, so Apple wants to give these very companies more time to adapt to digital business models.
However, the pandemic has been going on for more than six months, and it is a little strange that Apple has decided to make concessions only now. Perhaps her decision is due to an emerging conflict with Epic Games and other companies – Apple just decided to show that she knows how to make concessions.
