Apple voilating App Store guidelines by pushing Apple Music ads notification

11 February 2019 2

Apple Music that is one of the fastest growing music streaming services around the world had 36 million paying customers last year. Apple recently integrated Apple Music into its Amazon Echo devices from 17th December. Now the Cupertino tech giant Apple is sending out a bunch of notifications to those users who didn’t convert into a long-time customer or the ones who ended their trial beyond their free trial period.


A bunch of users shared what they were getting from, more of an advert through notification with one version saying, “We’ve changed,” and another one “It’s not too late.”. These notifications are not only limited to Apple Music but are also targeting its other services and products like discounted HomePods, iPhone XR deals and more.

Interestingly, developers have raised their voice sharing how Apple has been violating its very own App Store guidelines which states that notifications shouldn’t be used as a mean of direct marketing, saying,

Push Notifications must not be required for the app to function, and should not be used for advertising, promotions, or direct marketing purposes or to send sensitive personal or confidential information. Abuse of these services may result in revocation of your privileges.
