It was clear that Apple would not roll over and comply with the new EU regulations. Of course they are trying to make it as hard as possible for developers to not use their payment system and stick to the status quo.

I think the reduced comission between 10% and 17% is fair, the 3% payment processing fee maybe as well. But collecting a “core technology fee” for essentially doing nothing is wild. Can’t wait for someone to sue them. Will take a couple of years, I guess, but I am sure it will be eventually struck down by the courts.
