Apple Allows Developers to Offer 50% Discount to Educational Institutions for Bulk App Store Purchases


As noted by Mac|Life, a change to Apple's App Store developer agreement today reveals that the company has rolled out a new discount program to allow developers to offer their applications to educational institutions at a 50% discount when multiple copies of an app are purchased at the same time.

Developers logging into their iTunes Connect accounts today are being met with a disclosure of the revised terms and an easy radio button selection to allow all of their existing apps to be offered under the new program. Alternatively, developers can manually manage which apps are available at the discounted bulk purchasing price.

Further details on how the program will work from the purchasing side are not yet known.
