Apple no longer requires user opt-in for subscription price increases

Developers now have an easier way to increase the price of their subscriptions.

In an update on the Apple Developer website, Apple has announced that auto-renewable subscription prices can be increased by the developer once per year without the user needing to opt in to the price change. According to the company, requiring users to always opt-in to an increase “led to some services being unintentionally interrupted for users.”

While Apple is now allowing a price increase without opt-in, there are some strict rules in order to allow the change. The company says that, in order to not require an opt-in from the user, the price increase must be less than $5 and 50% of the subscription price.

With this update, under certain specific conditions and with advance user notice, developers may also offer an auto-renewable subscription price increase, without the user needing to take action and without interrupting the service. The specific conditions for this feature are that the price increase doesn’t occur more than once per year, doesn’t exceed US$5 and 50% of the subscription price, or US$50 and 50% for an annual subscription price, and is permissible by local law.

If the price increase is more than $5 or 50% of the cost of the subscription, subscribers will still be required to opt in to accept the change.

For all subscription price increases that are above the thresholds, exceed the annual limit, or occur within territories where the law requires it, subscribers must opt ​​in before the price increase is applied. The subscription won’t renew at the next billing period for subscribers who didn’t opt ​​in to the new price. They can always resubscribe within the app, from Settings on iPhone and iPad, or in the App Store on Mac.

Regardless of either, Apple says that users will still be notified of the upcoming price increase by email, push notification, and a message within the app.
