At present Apple has disclosed that it wants a 30 percent cut from all the subscriptions which has been sold on iOS devices, as well as the services that provides video, newspapers, music and magazines. As the Apple’s move may power the digital publishers and content providers for example Netflix, Amazon and Hulu to think about offering applications for iPad, iPhone and iPod Touch devices.
The Apple’s new in-app subscription model, all businesses content subscriptions on iOS applications essentially uses Apple’s new subscription service. This means Apple would get a 30 percent on all subscription transactions that have happened on an iOS device. As a trade off, digital publishers can still provide content within an iOS app for free to existing customers, as long as they also offer a “subscribe” button within the iOS app.The part that has the possibility to upset digital publishers is that all links to make purchases outside an iOS app have to be removed. This means links such as Amazon’s “Shop in Kindle Store” button would be removed, which boots you up from the Kindle app into mobile Safari to buying books, would be removed soon.
The average iOS user, Apple’s new subscription model would let you purchase a new subscription within your favorite applications with just a few clicks. You shouldn’t have to worry about inputting your credit card details or filling out a form on the iPhone screen since Apple already has all your details. Though purchasing Kindle e-books on an iOS device is a good experience, it is a bit of a trouble. You have to go to Amazon’s website, buy your book, then restart the Kindle app and navigate to the archived section to download your new item. Purchasing a Kindle book is comparatively easy once a user get going with the system, but is away from a unified experience.
Major producers might get upset over Apple’s subscription model, but it could appear to be a huge benefit for smaller publishers that they don’t have any content fees to pay. If you desire to create your own magazine or local newspaper, for example, having an in-app subscription model makes it that easier to introduce people to your product and encourage them to subscribe.Sharing revenue with Apple isn’t so immoral if you know about the content which you are selling. Apple is stabilizing the bill for all that iOS organization to sell their app, so providing Apple a cut is unavoidable. But subscription-based firms that have to compensate royalties on content such as music (Rhapsody), movies (Netflix) orTV shows (Hulu) could end up getting bolted in the deal. An Apple-imposed plan that requires a user to pay 30 percent of our revenue to Apple, in addition to content fees that we give to the music tags, artists and publishers, is economically unsustainable, Rhapsody said in its statement.
