Apple cracks down on ‘rip-off’ subscription apps

Apple has reportedly began cracking down on apps that feature subscriptions Apple considers to be unreasonable, claims 9to5Mac. The report cites a rejection email sent to one developer saying that the price of in-app purchases do not “do not reflect the value of the features and content” on offer. It also calls it a “rip-off to customers.” “We were initially skeptical about the veracity of this email given some of the wording choices, but looking through Apple’s App Store Review Guidelines, it’s possible to find the term “rip-off” at least twice, such as in section where Apple states that ‘we won’t distribute apps and in-app purchase items that are clear rip-offs.'” The unnamed developer who shared the notice was reportedly sent it by accident.
