As you might keep in mind, Apple came up with these changes soon after a public battle with Basecamp over the “Hey” email app. Apple declined Basecamp’s bug repairs due to the fact that the app required users to sign up for Hey online and there was no option for in-app purchases or trials, which would have produced a commission for Apple. Later, Apple reversed its decision, allowing the bug repairs to go through, and Basecamp developed a compromise, a totally free trial offered through the app.
These changes, revealed quickly after that debacle, might prevent a comparable situation from taking place in the future. However less than two weeks back, Apple apparently blocked WordPress app updates to require in-app purchase assistance, and Apple is combating another battle with Impressive Games, which just recently started offering Fortnite discount rates for gamers who bypass App Store purchases.
You need to wonder how receptive Apple will be to tips, when so many have pressed back versus its policy of collecting substantial commissions on in-app purchases.
