Reading the fine print of Apple's DMA rules: 25 things app developers need to know | TechCrunch
Briefly

Apple has announced new rules for EU app developers to comply with the Digital Markets Act (DMA), which requires Apple to make changes to increase competition in the app industry. Some of the changes include offering new ways to download apps from outside the App Store, a revised commission and fee structure, and more. Developer responses to the changes have been mixed, with larger companies like Epic Games, Spotify, and Microsoft coming out against Apple's changes.
After being designated as a 'gatekeeper,' the EU required Apple to make changes to increase competition in the app industry, including by offering new ways to download apps from outside the App Store, new frameworks and API, a revised commission and fee structure, and more.
While developers are being presented with a reduced commission in the EU, the company will continue to charge an additional 3% if they use Apple's payment processing service. Apple is also implementing a Core Technology Fee for access to its proprietary technologies and tools, developer services and support, and platform integrity. In addition, Apple is introducing more options for developers, like the ability to tap into NFC payment technology for their own apps.
Meanwhile, the company is implementing a Core Technology Fee that Apple says pays for their access to Apple's proprietary technologies and tools, developer services and support, and platform integrity. This fee applies to apps both distributed on the App Store and through alternative marketplaces and is €0.50 for each first annual install per year over a 1 million threshold.
