Spotify discontinues in-app subscriptions through Apple’s App Store

  • Spotify notifies existing subscribers of discontinuation of in-app subscriptions through Apple App Store, requiring them to re-subscribe via Spotify’s website.
  • This change terminates the 30% commission previously given to Apple by Spotify for iPhone and iPad subscriptions.
  • The move comes after Apple implemented policy changes allowing iOS apps to have users subscribe externally, with Netflix also adopting this approach in the past.
