Google Stadia coming to Apple iPhone, iPad in 2021 through web app

Though lawyers initially planned to report Apple as well, they chose to postpone their decision after Apple said Wednesday it would reduce the standard commission on its App Store to 15 percent from 30 percent for app developers with annual profits of less than $1 million starting next year.

This deadline extension means developers have more time to incorporate in-app purchases in their apps where applicable and to temporarily reap the full profits of their sales.

Apple cited the coronavirus pandemic, writing in a developer update posted to its website, "As the world fights COVID-19, we recognize that adapting experiences from in-person to digital continues to be a top priority". Earlier, in August, Facebook had asked both Apple and Google to waive their 30 percent commission fee for small businesses, creators, etc.

San Francisco, Nov 24 (IANS) Apple has extended its deadline for requiring in-app purchases for online group events within iOS apps from December to June 30 next year.

Even though the Stadium browser is technically available on the App Store and it can run games with the native Stadia controller hooked up, it'd be nice to have something official from Google regarding iOS users.

With Apple waiving off the commission, businesses and developers can continue to offer online group events and services through iOS apps without the requirement of using in-app purchases during the upcoming holiday season in the US. Facebook's issue was framed around event organizers losing out on much-needed money for their digital events offered through the Facebook app during COVID-19, because of Apple's 30 percent in-app purchase commission.
