EU warns Apple of possible consequences if the modifications done to its App Store do not comply with the European Union's DMA

Apple is going to face potential consequences if the modifications done to its App Store do not comply with the European Union's Digital Markets Act (DMA). The company has plans to allow developers to use alternative app stores and opt out of Apple's in-app payment system, addressing concerns about its 30% commission. In fact, despite these changes, critics argue the fee structure may still violate the DMA. Thierry Breton, industry chief of EU warns that if Apple's proposals fall short, the EU will immediately take robust action.

The new regulation also grants users in the EU, the ability to choose default web browsers and contactless payment apps. Developers can avoid Apple's App Store and payment system, but a "core technology fee" of 50 euro cents per user account per year is mandatory for those opting into new terms.

Apple also estimates that 99% of EU developers would see reduced or maintained fees, with larger companies like Meta and Spotify, potentially getting more affected.

The EU will assess companies' proposals from March 7th.
