Apple to developers: You’ve now got longer to add in-app payment to your online events

Apple is giving a six-month extension to its temporary waiver of the 30% commission it normally changes for iOS apps hosting online group events and classes. 

Until September, the company required iOS apps for this activity to use the App Store’s in-app purchases for goods sold by app developers. 

As The Verge reported at the time, Facebook got into a fight with Apple over its 30% App Store fee after launching a feature that let small businesses create paid online events. Due to the pandemic, Facebook opted not to collect fees on event purchases until August 2021. Initially Apple didn’t budge but in September it waived the fee for Facebook’s feature.

COVID-19 app payment loophole won’t be fixed by the end of England lockdown | Science & Tech News, Reports

People who are told to isolate by the contact tracing app will not be able to claim financial support after lockdown ends, and may not be able to before Christmas, Sky News can reveal.

Workers with low incomes in England are entitled to receive £500 if they cannot work from home while they self-isolate, but they can only claim the support if they are given a code by a human contact tracer.

Leaked documents seen by Sky News reveal that a technical fix has been drawn up and signed off by the Treasury and Downing Street.

Yet delays in its implementation mean it will not be in place for the end of England’s lockdown on December 2, and may not arrive for several weeks after that, despite fears that contacts will increase over the holiday period.

How Blockchain and Digital Names are Revolutionizing Payment Technology

Los Angeles, CA, Nov. 10, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — (via Blockchain Wire) Blockchain technology. You’ve probably heard about it, but what is it, exactly?

According to, the description of “blockchain” technology is as follows:

“A blockchain is a digital record of transactions. The name comes from its structure, in which individual records, called blocks, are linked together in a single list, called a chain. Blockchains are used for recording transactions made with cryptocurrencies, such as Bitcoin, and have many other applications.

Multiple computers validate each transaction added to a blockchain on the Internet. These systems are configured to monitor specific types of blockchain transactions, form a peer-to-peer network. They work together to ensure each transaction is valid before it is added to the blockchain. This decentralized network of computers ensures a single system cannot add invalid blocks to the chain.” (
