Having confirmed that he will buy Twitter, it appears that Elon Musk is now turning to criticism against Apple, in this case joining companies like Spotify, Epic Games, and others.
Musk recently made it clear that he disagrees with the idea of Apple charging a 30% commission on all payments made in apps within the App Store, and in its ecosystem in general. According to Musk, this online rate “isn’t quite right”, leaving the clear indication that he does not support their integration.
comment De Musk was left in a response to the tweet, which included a story about how PayPal sued Apple for anti-competitive practices in the marketplace regarding payments for its devices – and where a 30% fee was mentioned.
For Elon Musk, the value of the App Store fee is about ten times higher than it should be, leaving the notion that he considers the 3% commission an acceptable fee for the App Store. The same also leaves criticism of the fact that although many courts have considered the company’s unfair competition practices, at the same time, there are also courts that consider 30% “legal”.
So far, Apple has not left any comments regarding Musk’s letter, but it’s important to note that the fee amount in payments is applied to developers of apps with more than $1 million in revenue.
