Apple's legal battles over its competition practices in many parts of the world keep piling up. In early 2019, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled that iPhone users were entitled to file a lawsuit against Apple due to the 30% revenue cut from purchases made on the App Store

Today, a new class action suit was filed against the tech giant for allegedly making exorbitant charges on approximately 20 million consumers in the UK. The lawsuit claims that the App Store's 30% tax was "excessive" for consumers and calls for at least £1.5 million in compensation. Under the class action suit, any iPhone or iPad user in the country who purchased apps and subscriptions as well as those who made in-app purchases through the App Store since 2015 can claim compensation.

The rest

Apple bad, platform bad, terms of use bad, commission fees bad, reading bad.

Google and MS when they still had the Windows Phone, also had 30% cut and no one complained.

Only in 2018 did it change to 15% on the play store.
