Apple plans to slash some App Store commissions amid controversy

Apple will cut its App Store commissions in half for most developers beginning next year amid an intensifying debate about whether the iPhone maker has been using the fees to unfairly fatten its profits and stifle rivals competing against its own music, video and other subscription services.

The concession announced Wednesday will lower Apple’s commissions for in-app subscriptions and other purchases from the 30 percent rate that has been in place since 2008 to 15 percent, effective January 1.
