UI: iOS: remove donation link1.0.11-21
Apple forbids us from having a simple link to wireguard.com/donations/ in the version info window, citing the existence of this link as a form of payment outside of their in-app purchase framework that requires 30%. The link had been there for around two years. After rejecting an app update for a critical networking regression unrelated to this, they wrote: Dec 17, 2020 at 8:35 PM From Apple 3.1.1 - Business - Payments - In-App Purchase We noticed that your app allows users to contribute donations to the development of your app with a mechanism other than the in-app purchase API, which is not appropriate for the App Store. Next Steps To resolve this issue, please revise your app to use the in-app purchase API to pay for this type of transaction. Please note that even though tipping another individual is optional, the tip is connected to or associated with the receipt of digital content or services in your app and must be purchased through in-app purchase in accordance with guideline 3.1.1 of the App Store Review Guidelines. Please see attached screenshot for details. Trying to appeal this or reason with Apple is not going to be a fruitful endeavor, so instead we simply cut our losses and remove the donation link entirely. The goal, anyway, is to get a timely critical update into the hands of users, and encouraging Apple to block that further would be a disservice. Signed-off-by: Jason A. Donenfeld <Jason@zx2c4.com>
