Microsoft can’t point customers to sign up on its website either as that would circumvent the Apple fee."
  • "Beyond productivity software, Apple’s App Store rules have prevented Microsoft, among others, from launching new and popular cloud gaming services on the iPhone and iPad, Bloomberg News reported earlier this year."
  • "Hey" is approved now
  • Catalyst and iOS/macOS compatibility still incoherent
