The New York Times 08/27/2021

Apple has agreed to allow developers selling on its App Store to contact customers outside of their apps to tell them about alternative methods of payment so that they can seek to avoid paying the tech giant’s commissions.

Apple will also make payouts of between $250 and $30,000 to developers who made less than $1 million a year selling through its store.
