Apple charges a monthly fee of up to 30 percent for those that do use its billing system — and it doesn’t want app makers to use the apps to promote alternate subscription options outside the apps.
By now, the chances are high that your apps have finally got in line and updated just as you wanted them to.
To kill the app and make it start from fresh, you need to follow the instructions below: You’re still here? All your apps and data will still be there once you have done this. Press and hold the home button and the power button and keep them held down for about 20 seconds, or until you see the Apple logo. Just keep those buttons held down until the screen goes black and the i Pad restarts.
(Correction: An earlier version of this story incorrectly reported the date Spotify sent the letter.) “This latest episode raises serious concerns under both U. we cannot stand by as Apple uses the App Store approval process as a weapon to harm competitors.” Spotify has distributed copies of the letter to some Congressional staff in Washington, D. Yesterday, Senator Elizabeth Warren criticized Apple, Amazon and Google for what she called anticompetitive practices; Warren said that “Apple has long used its control of i OS to squash competition in music.” Spotify declined to comment; Apple hasn’t responded to request for comment.
For the past year, Spotify has argued publicly, and to various regulators in the U. and Europe, that Apple’s subscription policies effectively punish third-party music services that use Apple’s platform, while boosting Apple Music, the home-grown service it launched in June 2015.
