Rumors Claim Microsoft Is Pressing Apple to Take a Smaller Slice of Office for iOS Sales

Apple typically demands 30% of in-app purchases made by consumers on each app available on the App Store. Apple recently rejected an update to Microsoft's SkyDrive after it had a dispute with Microsoft over that 30% cut. Sources are now claiming that Microsoft and Apple are still in negotiations over the 30% commission Apple demands that Microsoft doesn't want to pay for office 365 subscriptions.

Office 365 subscriptions will be sold through Microsoft Office for iOS, which has long been rumored and expected to launch next year. Office productivity applications are one of Microsoft's biggest money makers and while office compatibility is one of the biggest benefits of the Surface RT tablet. It would make a lot of sense for Microsoft to get Office onto popular Apple gadgets. Microsoft is reportedly pushing for an adjustment to the 70/30 revenue split in its developer license agreement.

I would think Apple is highly unlikely to agree to that because it simply doesn't have to. If Microsoft wants to offer Office on iOS gadgets, it will pay. At the same time, if Apple allowed Microsoft a different cut, many other developers would be asking for the same thing. Indications are that Apple is simply not willing to negotiate.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
