According to the complaint, Apple exploited its monopolistic status as the creator of the iPhone and as the firm in charge of the App Store to "crush" developers competing with it by charging "exploitive fees and selectively applying opaque and arbitrary limits."
Eleftheriou also accused Apple of doing little to curb the stream of fake apps that duped potential users of his software, a swipe-based keyboard for the Apple Watch.
The case was dropped earlier this summer at the request of Eleftheriou's firm, Kpaw.
Eleftheriou told The Verge that he couldn't comment on the deal or his views about it.
It's also changed the auto-renew subscription scheme, which Sean and Eleftheriou both advised should be abolished, with users urged to renew whenever a payment was due.
According to Apple, public pages that explain why apps were removed might be mined for data from firms that monitor the App Store, giving us a general indication of how widespread particular concerns are.
