Apple Makes Modifications to DMA Regulations Under External Pressure, But Maintains Core Technology Fee Structure

App Store 2024 V3
However, Apple is today announcing a handful of smaller concessions driven by feedback from its app developer community, it says. In addition, the move to opt into the DMA terms is no longer a one-way switch. However, these changes don’t address the major complaints with Apple’s DMA rules, which involve reducing commissions on App Store purchases in favor of other new fees. Before, Apple was requiring that corporations sign up each membership it controls if it chose to opt into the DMA rules. It also says apps that don’t comply with its guidelines will be blocked from installation — including via alternative app marketplaces.
