The iPhone manufacturer has eased its position on the controversial “Apple tax”.

Apple has long taken a hefty cut in revenue from apps that process payments through iOS.

And developers get banned if they try to circumvent this by providing a link to their website.

It’s a touchy subject that has infuriated Fortnite maker Epic, who dared to defy the rules a few years ago and as a result was taken off the App Store.

Apple has now made some changes to how it charges, meaning some services like Netflix can finally avoid them altogether.

It applies to apps that qualify as “readers” i.e. H. the provision of “content previously purchased or available through an app that users regularly pay for, such as music, videos, digital magazines, newspapers, books, etc. audio”.

That means Netflix is ​​among the few allowed to offer a subscription link that takes users to a website outside of Apple’s reach.

However, Apple will display a warning message when you tap the subscribe button.

The message, first spotted by 9to5Mactells users “You are about to exit the app and go to an external website.”

It warns that “any accounts or purchases made outside of this app are managed by the developer”.

“Your App Store account, saved payment methods, and related features such as subscription management and refund requests will not be available,” the warning said.

“Apple is not responsible for the privacy or security of any transactions conducted with this developer.”
