Apple has been accused by the WordPress app. The company said that due to being a free app, Apple stopped the updates.
WordPress is popular about content management around the world. In particular, this platform offers the option of creating a free website. The founding developer of WordPress has accused Apple of a big charge, as Apple stopped updates.
Actually, WordPress’s iOS app is where users can create and design free websites. Word’s founding developer Matt Mullenweg has accused Apple of turning off the ability to update WordPress.
Matt Mullenweg has tweeted in which he has explained why updates were not being provided in the WordPress app on iOS for some time.
They have said, ‘The reason for not giving update .. We have been locked on the Apple App Store. To provide updates and bug fixes, we were asked to support .com plans in-app purchase ‘
According to a report by The Verge, these apps are not included in the WordPress app on iOS. That is, you do not have to pay to use the service of this app.
There is also an option to buy domain names in this app and websites can be made here for free. Since this is an open-source project, nothing is sold on the app.
According to the report, Apple has limited the update of this app because of this, because Apple wants to offer these app purchases in this app.
When any app option is given in any app, then Apple takes a share of 30% from it.
However, the founding developer of Word Press has told The Verge that the company cannot fight for it anymore and will purchase and launch a new in-app for WordPress.com which will be for the paid tier.
That is, the service that was free will remain free, but for tree service, now the transaction will be done through the app.
Now Apple has allowed the automatic updates of this app.
A similar fight is going on with Epic Games too
Apple has removed the developer game of popular gaming app Fortnite from the App Store. The reason is that this gaming app took a different redirect, not all transactions through the App Store.
Since Apple’s rule is to take a share of 30% of these app-protected apps. In such a situation, Apple has removed it from the App Store for violating the policy. However, in this case, Epic Games has also challenged Apple.
