Lin called the App Store's Search Ads product "immature" and said that aside from looking too much like search results, that ads sometimes take up an entire page of search results. It's always a good idea to check your subscriptions on a regular basis, if only to see if you're subscribed to apps you're no longer using.
It is important to note that Apple cracked down on unofficial tipping, which was a way around the 30 percent fee on in-app purchases by highlighting how the tips were donations rather than actual purchases.
After Apple announced at the recent Worldwide Developers Congress 2017 that it was able to pay developers more than US$70 billion via App Store, experts have come forward to reveal a dissenting truth about the claim.
According to new rules, developers can not display the app review prompts whenever they wish too, instead now they have to follow 2 important points before doing so. According to marketing data firm Sensor Tower, the bogus app delivers more or less US$80,000 each month in revenue.
After scanning his contacts, it noted "no dupplicates were found", with the same misspelling.

Next iPhone May Not Have Gigabit Speed
Needless to say, Apple wants to ensure that iPhone 8 performance remains uniform no matter what LTE modem it happens to feature. We're still months away from the next iPhone which, by all accounts, will be Apple's most impressive handset yet.
Apple could face a backlash from Chinese app makers after it issued a new policy defining tips as in-app purchases. The whole post is really worth the read, but the bottom line is this: by buying a few strategically picked search ads and using a bit of SEO, a shady developer can make tens of thousands of dollars off a garbage app by aggressively pushing users to buy subscriptions.
This has now changed with the addition of one of its new rules, stating that tipping is considered "an in-app purchase", and must undergo Apple's internal App Store payment system.
The principal concern that Lin is raising relates to the approval process which Apple users before Apps make it into the store. Apple Music and iCloud subscriptions, plus third party subscriptions on the App Store, exceeded 165 million. It's baffling that Apple approved apps like this in the first place - perhaps it's a side effect of faster app review times. It's basically a Flappy Bird clone that you control with your voice, which sounds utterly bad, so maybe Apple's decision to reject it was just as much about quality as it was about content. "One of the problems is that most users don't even know that the top result on their search is a paid ad-they look nearly identical to the actual results". Search ads ensure it earns the top spot when you search for terms like "qr scanner" or "qr code", giving it more visibility and, to some, credibility than its legitimate counterparts.
CSO Online has asked Apple for comment and will update the story if it receives a response.
