Apple says Japan Fair Trade Commission closes App Store investigation


September 2, 2021

(Reuters) – Apple Inc said late on Wednesday that an update was coming to the App Store, which closed an investigation by the Japan Fair Trade Commission (JFTC).

“The update will allow developers of “reader” apps to include an in-app link to their website for users to set up or manage an account,” Apple said in a statement.

“While the agreement was made with the JFTC, Apple will apply this change globally to all reader apps on the store,” the company said.
