While the well-known 70 / 30 split will remain, developers who are able to maintain a subscription with a customer longer than a year will see Apple’s cut drop down to 15 percent. The option to sell subscriptions will also be available to all developers instead of just a few kinds of apps. “Now we’re going to open up to all categories,” Schiller says, “and that includes games, which is a huge category.”
This is will be interesting to see how the users react. Developers are going to be happy because Apple is given them more options and a better deal. This is a smart move on Apple because small time developers can’t make a living.
