Apple applying a tighter control on refunded apps

Advertisement

Apple’s App Store is definitely one of the best, if not the best in its class when it comes to ease of use, and even flexibility when it came to the apps you no longer wanted. It used to be that if you weren’t satisfied with an app and you requested a refund, Apple would grant you this refund through the developer, but then your App still remained installed, and yes, you even received free updates for it. It’s hard to tell if this was lack of control, or Apple’s way to be nice to you, but that’s about to change.

A lot of users (some of us included) have noticed that Apple is lately giving you a new message when trying to update any app you requested a refund for. As it turns out, these apps won’t receive any updates going further, and if you decided to uninstall the application from your device, the app will no longer be accessible in your list of purchased items.

Call it a harsh note or a fair one, but hey, if you requested a refund it means you no longer want the service you paid for. It’s a fair move for developers since their hard work isn’t done for free.
