Apple has an impeccable reputation and value in the technology market at the moment. One of the main reasons why the Cupertino technology giant has managed to reach this level of respect is because the firm has been following a fixed set of rules and regulations since ages. Thus, those who want to be part and parcel of the products that they deliver to their millions of users worldwide, are required to fall in line to follow these rules as well.
This includes the app developers who wish to submit their products for viewing on the official Apple App Store. More times than often, app developers do not end up having a seamless experience. However, the company has made a few changes that may not make it so overbearing for app developers to submit their products. Government and non-profit bodies will be the first ones to gain maximum advantage over the new change.
According to a report by The Verge, the Cupertino giant has made significant changes to its App Store guidelines. This is especially about app or products that are submitted under the “commercialised template.” The firm has even gone ahead and waived off the $99 developer free for all the “government and non-profit organisations in the U.S. from 2018 onward.”
The exact date for this purpose hasn’t been mentioned by Apple as yet, but the company has undoubtedly confirmed the new change. These organisations will no longer have to pay the impending fees for their product to be visible on the platform.
The company further went on to suggest that companies that create these “commercialised template” apps can create a “single binary to host all client content in an aggregated or ‘picker’ model.” This comes across as an excellent idea for all those who are looking to showcase more than one product on the Apple App Store.
