Apple has changed its rules for gifting in-application buys, as spotted by MacRumors. Already, you could gift paid applications to other individuals, yet not paid in-application content.
Apple’s App Store Review Guidelines. Previously, it read: “Applications ought not specifically or in a roundabout way empower gifting of in-application buy substance, highlights, or consumable things to other people.” Now, it says: “Applications can provide others with gifts that are appropriate for in-app purchases. These gifts can only be returned to the original purchaser and cannot be changed.”
Freemium games aren’t going anyplace (and microtransactions are greatly gainful), so it bodes well that Apple would keep on responding to how individuals are spending their cash on and inside versatile amusements, particularly with the ascent of allowed to-play recreations like Fortnite and PUBG. A year ago, Apple required iOS games with plunder boxes to unveil chances of specific things showing up.
We don’t know how Apple intends to actualize this change. At the present time in the App Store, tapping on the three spot symbol for a free game still shows “share App” and “more by this developer” as the main two choices. With paid applications, a third “gift application” choice is additionally accessible, however nothing explicit for gifting in-application buys.
