Netflix will no longer offer in-app subscriptions on iOS devices

Netflix is no longer letting new users use iTunes billing

This is because Netflix no longer supports iTunes as a payment method for new members.

A few months back, Netflix stopped supporting iTunes billing in several markets and is now rolling out the change worldwide.

"We no longer support iTunes as a method of payment for new members", a Netflix spokesperson told VentureBeat.The spokesperson then said existing members can continue to use iTunes as a Netflix payment method.

iOS users can also now double-tap on either side of their screen to skip forward and backward between scenes.

Whether you are a new customer or returning customer, Netflix had officially discontinued the in-app subscription feature on the iOS version of the subscription streaming service. Rather than use iTunes as a payment option for Netflix, new iOS customers will now have to sign up and buy the service directly on Netflix's website.

Benjamin Netanyahu Set For First Trip By Israeli PM To Brazil
He said that for his country to overcome obstacles, "we need good allies, good friends, good brothers , like Benjamin Netanyahu". Despite earlier reports, Netanyahu plans to attend the inauguration of Bolsonaro on Tuesday, Jan. 1, 2019 in Brasilia.

If you're an iOS user and you haven't yet jumped onto the Netflix train, things are going to be a little different for you.

The shift will allow Netflix to keep all revenue from subscription sales, rather than giving Apple a portion. This tactic has also been adopted by Spotify and Amazon's Kindle and Comixology apps which have all avoided Apple's tariffs by pushing users to an external browser to complete their purchases.

Both Google and Apple take 15 percent of each in-app sale, down from 30 percent previously.

Netflix made a similar change involving Google Play and the Netflix on Android app in May of this year.

From the user's perspective in-app subscription was a convenient way to pay for their subscriptions as their details were already mentioned in their Apple account.
