Apple gives real-world events longer pandemic-prompted App Store fee reprieve


Has everyone forgotten that...

Apple has perfectly good PWA support. It isn’t hard to click on ‘Add to Home Screen’ within Safari, which then adds an app icon and a separate context from the main browser. Anything which works as an Electron app can work as a PWA, so there’s no technical need to be in the App Store at all for the vast majority of iOS applications.

People still use Google to find online services, rather than the App Store, so it really isn’t hard to direct people on what to press with a couple of screenshots. PWAs are supported on Android, Windows, macOS and iOS, with Google looking to make them first class citizens in Google Play Store, so I really don’t know what the problem is here for those wanting virtual meetings.
