Why does Apple not follow its own rules? This is the question that goes through my mind when I write a post about The Verge on how – for the fourth time in four months – Apple promotes its own content in ways that are forbidden for its own developers Apple
The last three times, Apple sent people unwanted announcements to promote Apple Music and Carpool Karaoke, as well as Apple Music on the Amazon Echo.
Apple News Plus, the new subscription service for news and magazines of the company, is the latest intruder for how easy Apple can subscribe to:
Just touch that " Try Free "button, confirm your payment and you are on races. Something is that Apple forbids developers to make things look as simple as it was noticed by developer iOS Dave Delong . Usually Apple protects users from recurring charges by requiring developers to make these numbers so large on the screen that it is painfully obvious what it is about, how often you will pay and how to cancel if you decide you are not interested
Here are a few screenshots from the Apple website, so you can see how crystal clear the developer's "guidelines" are:
For some reason, Apple has decided that a cleaner, more attractive layout that hides some of the information that wants the developers, is the right choice for A pple News Plus.
Maybe this is not a huge deal for you and you will probably find out how to cancel if necessary. It's not in the app itself, but you'll find the option to undo buried in the same place as usual: Settings> iTunes & App Store> Apple ID Review> Subscriptions. (You can also find it by tapping your App Store App photo, a relatively non-intuitive place to watch.)
But why do you create this rule if you do not believe in them, Apple?
Apple did not respond immediately to a request for a comment.
