IT House October 6 News, from October 5th,Apple App Store & nbsp; pricing in many countries and regions and all euro currency areas roseEssence In this regard, Tim Sweeney, CEO of EPIC Games, who is involved in the legal war against Apple, saidThere is no reason to do this

In a statement, Sweeney compares Apple to a landlord. Because there is no replacement App Store for developers, tenants have nowhere to go.

Imagine that if the landlord told them the small business tenants, they had to increase the price, and there was no say in this matter or nowhere to go. This is what Apple has done to developers. There is no other reason, just to increase Apple's profits. They increased their prices to developers in multiple countries without any reason. Developers have no choice but to obey, because the App Store is the only way for them to contact more than 1 billion iOS users.

Apple announced the price increase for the first time last month,About three weeks of notification time to developersEssence The pricing of the App Store is layered, and what Apple does is to increase the cost of all pre -set levels. For example, the minimum 0.99 euro level has jumped to 1.19 euros, and the highest level has risen from 999 euros to 1199 euros. Apple website lists a complete level of pricing.

IT House learned that in addition to the area of the euro currency,Apple is also in Chile, Egypt, Japan, Malaysia, Pakistan, Poland, South Korea, Sweden, and Vietnam

Foreign media Macrumors pointed out that developers in the euro region can reduce the price of app store or pass higher costs to consumers, but as Sweeney pointedIf developers want to provide users on iPhone and iPad, they must use the Apple App Store

At present, EPIC Games and Apple have conducted long -term legal war on the App Store policy. Sweeney and his company deliberately violated the App Store rules, and then filed a lawsuit against Apple, hoping that the court would order Apple to allow third -party app stores to operate on iOS devices.

The lawsuit was not beneficial to Epic Games, and Apple was not required to support other app stores. The two companies are currently undergoing long appeal procedures. Apple is also facing legislation from multiple countries. In the end, it may be required to make some changes to allow the side load.
