Apple Caves On In-App Payments For WordPress

Apple has backed down and apologized after it found itself in yet another controversy this weekend over its App Store, Bloomberg News reported.

It started on Friday (Aug. 21) when WordPress founder Matt Mullenwag tweeted that his app, which hosts blogs, had been locked out of the App Store. The restriction prevented WordPress from updating its iOS app.

To get access, Apple said it wanted a 30 percent cut of WordPress’ in-app sale; the App Store is where Apple makes much of its $50 billion per year services business, the news service reported.
