The March 25 keynote was full of announcements. Apple News +, a platform that gives access to three hundred newspapers and magazines in exchange for a subscription of $ 9.99 per month. A derisory price which caused controversy with the media: Apple would indeed take 50% commission on this rate, the rest would be shared between the many publishers. And the apple brand is going to face new controversy.
I’m honestly surprised there hasn’t been an extremely public lawsuit against @apple about the huge #DoubleStandards and inconsistent application of the App Review Guidelines.
Seems ripe for a class-action lawsuit, IMO.

Another problem, according to Dave DeLong: in Apple News +, it is possible to “try for free” the service with ease: one click and it’s done. However, developers do not have the right to offer a trial period so simply: they must display the total price of a subscription according to its duration. Apple does not indicate here the duration of the test, nor the price that will ensue thereafter.
” I am honestly surprised that there has been no public lawsuit against Apple Writes Dave DeLong. Apple will have to react quickly.
