IAP Fees for Event Services

Apple:

Last year, to support apps that adapted services from in-person to digital, we temporarily deferred the requirement to offer paid online group event services (one-to-few and one-to-many realtime services) through in-app purchase in accordance with App Store Review Guideline 3.1.1.

[…]

As a reminder, new apps and updates offering these realtime one-to-few and one-to-many services must use in-app purchase by December 31, 2021, or they won’t be approved per guideline 3.1.1. Apps offering realtime person-to-person services between two individuals (for example, tutoring students, medical consultations, real estate tours, or fitness training) can continue using purchase methods other than in-app purchase.

No amount of money is too small (and no amount of harm to developers and users too great) for Apple not to grub for it. I hope the government shuts down these baseless fees once and for all. Apple is splitting hairs where no such differentiation exists.
