Discussion on: Could Apple Be Forced to Reduce App Store Fees?

Everyone always knew the App store took a lot of money. We had the same competition for lower fees between things like Steam and Epic and so on, too.

I think the reasons Apple is different are

  • they have the monopoly on apps for their own ecosystem
  • they can afford to not charge anything
  • people expect to pay more for Apple stuff - even if it's not Apple's Apple stuff

I don't get why someone raising a fuss now would make any difference.
