App Store Connect is a suite of tools used by members of the Apple Developer Program to publish and manage apps on the App Store,Apple Business Manager, and Apple School Manager. Use it to submit apps, in-app purchases, in-app events, and other content. Invite people to beta test your app with TestFlight, add tax and banking information to receive payments, access sales reports, view analytics, and much more.
Initially, only the Account Holder (the person who joins the Apple Developer Program) has access to App Store Connect. Later, the Account Holder can create additional users in App Store Connect and assign specific roles. App Store Connect is available on the web and as an app for iOS and iPadOS.
Auto-Renewable Subscription (Apple)
Auto-renewable subscriptions provide access to content, services, or premium features in your app on an ongoing basis. They automatically renew at the end of their duration until the user chooses to cancel. Subscriptions are available on iOS, iPadOS, macOS, watchOS, and tvOS.
Great subscription apps justify the recurring payment by providing ongoing value and continually innovating the app experience. If you’re considering implementing the subscription model, plan to regularly update your app with feature enhancements or expanded content.
Many types of apps can take advantage of subscriptions, including apps that offer new game levels, episodic content, software as a service, or cloud support. Other appropriate subscriptions include apps that offer consistent, substantive updates, or access to libraries or collections of content. You can offer subscriptions (a type of in-app purchase) alongside other in-app purchase types.
