Apple Announces Changes to Rules for Dating Apps in the Netherlands

Apple has announced a second set of changes to its rules for dating apps in the Netherlands after failing to comply with an Authority for Consumers and Markets (ACM) order.

Since February of this year, developers of dating apps on the App Store in the Netherlands have been able to use the StoreKit External Purchase Entitlement or the StoreKit External Purchase Link Entitlement to enable the capability to sell services through a payment system other than Apple’s in-app purchase system. Apple established these entitlements as part of our plan to comply with a recent Netherlands Authority for Consumers and Markets (ACM) order.

Today we’ve introduced changes to these entitlements, which include:

● Removal of the Separate Binary Requirement: Apple is eliminating the requirement that developers of dating apps in the Netherlands who choose to use the above entitlements must create and use a separate binary. This change means that developers may include either entitlement in their existing dating app, but still must limit its use to the app in the Netherlands storefront and on devices running iOS or iPadOS.
● Payment Service Provider Criteria: Apple is providing updated and more-specific criteria to evaluate non-Apple payment service providers that developers of dating apps in the Netherlands may use.
● Consumer Disclosures: Apps that use either entitlement need to include an in-app modal sheet that explains to users that they’re going to make purchases through an external payment system, and the potential impact that choice could have on the user. Apple is adjusting the language on the modal sheet and reducing the number of times the sheet must be displayed.

Apple's previous steps to comply with the Netherlands Authority for Consumers and Markets (ACM) order were deemed insufficient resulting in 50 million euros in fines. The ACM has yet to determine whether these additional steps will bring Apple into compliance.

Apple made sure to note that it disagrees with the order and is appealing it.
