Apple's recent offer to let developers include links to outside payment methods in their apps hasn't attracted much interest.

According to Bloomberg, out of a possible 65,000 developers who could have used this option, only 38 applied for it.

Introduced to comply with a court order, the new rules still require developers to pay Apple a commission fee of up to 27%. Developers are worried because, on top of Apple's fees, they also have to pay other fees for processing payments. This could end up costing them even more than before.

Epic Games has criticized Apple's effort, calling it ineffective. During a recent hearing, the judge questioned Apple's motives, suggesting they aimed to maintain their revenue without considering the costs to developers.
