Apple apologizes to WordPress, agrees to allow the WordPress app on the App Store without In-App Purchases after an update

On Friday, Apple faced a massive backlash on the internet when WordPress founder Matt Mullenweg came through a tweet mentioned that they cannot fix bugs and update their app as Apple has locked them from doing so. He said that Apple locked them due to a lack of in-app purchases (IAP) for WordPress.com plans. Apple has already been involved in a tussle with Epic, and that issue has been on the headlines for quite a few days now.

Apple is already trying hard to win over Epic in the Lawsuit and already facing enough criticism from the people around the world. Apple definitely did not want the things to get complicated again and quickly responded and apologized to WordPress over the issue.

“We believe the issue with the WordPress app has been resolved. Since the developer removed the display of their service payment options from the app, it is now a free stand-alone app and does not have to offer in-app purchases. We have informed the developer and apologize for any confusion that we have caused,” Apple said in a statement.

The app has received an update immediately in Apples’s AppStore and continues not to have any additional in-app purchases.
