APPLE INSIDER - Apple has not done enough to appease a regulator's order concerning App Store payment rules affecting dating apps in the Netherlands, a decision that has now cost the company 5M Eur. Apple had until January 15 to provide developers with ways to take payments relating to dating apps through alternative means than the usual in-app purchases mechanism. On Monday, the ACM (Netherlands Authority for Consumers and Markets) declared Apple had "failed to satisfy the requirements" of its order. Since Apple failed, this meant it was subject to an initial fine of 5M Eur ($5.6M). If the order still isn't met, the same fine would be charged weekly, up to a maximum of 50M Eur ($56M).
