Facebook preparing lawsuit against Apple over the App Store: Report
Facebook is preparing a lawsuit against Apple over its App Store policies, according to a new report. The lawsuit would allege that Apple abused its power by making apps listed on its App Store follow specific policies that Apple's own apps do not, The Information reported Thursday. Facebook would not comment on pending litigation but told FOX Business in a statement that it believes "Apple is behaving anti-competitively by using their control of the App Store to benefit their bottom line at the expense of app developers and small businesses. Apple first announced a number of new, transparency-driven changes to its App Store policies for iOS 14 in June , including permission requests for user data that are expected to roll out "soon" after the tech giant delayed the update "to give developers time to make necessary changes," according to a September blog post. The permission requests update, called App Tracking Transparency, will "roll out broadly in early spring" and require apps to ask a user's permission before tracking their personal data across apps or websites belonging to other companies, Apple said Wednesday in a press release.
During phase 3 of the ABM app publication process, in which you customise the app in App Store Connect, you will be required to provide an Apple ID to which your app will be distributed. In preparation of this phase, this Apple ID will have to be created. Note that this concerns the Apple ID which will be used to download the app. In other words, this Apple ID will be registered to your app user your client instead of yourself. If you use an account which is registered to yourself, Apple will reject the app.
