Apple iPhone blocked Facebook from App Store

Facebook said Apple cited a rule for the App Store, which prohibits developers from showing users “irrelevant” content.

Facebook on Thursday claimed Apple refused its attempt to tell users the iPhone maker would take a 30 percent sales cut in new online events feature, prompting Facebook to delete the message for users to get the tool.

“They should now have the opportunity more than ever to help people understand where the money they want to invest on small businesses actually goes. Unfortunately, our transparency notice was rejected by Apple around its 30 percent fee, but we are still working to make that information available inside the app experience, “said Facebook in a statement.

Apple declined to respond to a request for comment.

Earlier this month, Facebook said it was preparing to roll out a new platform that would allow online influencers and other companies to host paid online events as a way to offset the revenue lost during the COVID-19 pandemic.

The company said it had asked Apple to waive the iPhone maker’s charge of 30 percent for in-app purchases, so that Facebook could pass on all income from the event to business owners, but that Apple refused.

Facebook had intended to give users a warning of Apple’s split, according to the mock-ups it published at the time, but on Thursday Reuters noticed that the expected message was not present on the latest event tab.
