Google lowers Play Store fees for subscription and music streaming apps to 15%

The landscape for digital storefronts is changing quite a bit. That is thanks, at least in part, to a lot of outside voices demanding those changes. Apple, for its part, remains reluctant to make any sweeping changes that don't ultimately benefit the company. But, it has made some changes, and there appear to be even more in the works.

While Apple champions all sorts of things, including individual privacy, user security, being a positive element for the environment, and no software backdoors which could give government agencies too much access.

Apple must allow other forms of in-app purchase options judge rules in Epic Games vs Apple trial

It has been a few months since the trial between Epic Games and Apple wound down. Now, the judge leading the trial has made an initial ruling. And it's a big win for Epic (and Fortnite).
