Bloomberg: Apple challenges multi-billion fine after Spotify complaint in EU General Court – IT Pro – News

Where can you get non-Apple customers to pay more because Apple wants a big margin?
Apple offers a service, in this case the AppStore, and charges a 30% fee if you also generate revenue through it.

In other words, if Spotify offers an app in the AppStore and thus convinces customers to take up a subscription, Apple must be paid a commission. Don’t forget that it’s not just about the AppStore, it’s also about the entire development kit and other tools that you can use “for free”.

I really don’t understand why everyone finds this so weird. It’s no different with Android/Google either.
A kilo of bananas, a bottle of Coca-Cola or 5kg of potatoes also have different prices at Aldi, Lidl, Jumbo and AH. So I don’t understand why Spotify would make a fuss about just passing the 30% on to the customer. The Apple user will pay this amount, either by getting their subscription online or drawing their conclusions “everything on Apple is more expensive, I will buy an Android device next time”. If these customers are not willing to pay more or switch platforms, then your app does not provide enough added value.

Well, that’s my opinion.
