Without question, Apple's launch of the App Store back in 2008 forever changed the way we interact with our phones. The proposition that the App Store offered at the time was incredibly compelling insofar that developers were given access to the entirety of Apple's iOS user base in exchange for a 30% cut of all revenue earned.
Since then, Apple has doled out more than $120 billion to developers while earning a pretty penny for itself in the process. The mobile landscape in 2019, however, is a lot different than it was back in 2008. These days, developers aren't as keen on giving Apple a 30% cut off the top and some companies are speaking out about it. What's more, some companies are not too thrilled with the way Apple manages the App Store in general.
