Netflix removes iTunes billing option for new subscribers

Netflix pulls Apple iTunes billing for new subscribers

This means that these members can no longer renew their Netflix subscription from their iPhone or iPad. Existing members can continue to use iTunes for renewal payments. Rather, users who open the app on iOS (presumably without an account or with a lapsed subscription) will be prompted to visit Netflix's official website to re-subscribe instead of being allowed to do it in-app.

The App Store's holiday milestone provides Apple with a much needed positive story just one day after the company's worst day in years. Earlier previous year, Netflix also removed in-app subscription sign-ups in its Android app on Google Play. Apple isn't likely to retaliate based on its history with other tech companies that sought to avoid the so-called "Apple tax", TechCrunch reported.

Schiller also thanked for "the inspiring work of our talented developers and the support of our incredible customers around the world, the App Store finished off an outstanding 2018 and kicked off 2019 with a bang".

To put it simply, Fuchsia OS looks to be Google's way of unifying Chrome and Android into a single, more efficient operating system - but when it will finally become available to the public remains to be seen. Apple's paid subscription revenue grew more than 60% in the past year to about $300 million as more than 30,000 apps started charging recurring fees, CEO Tim Cook said in a July conference call with investors.
