In early December, Apple informed developers that premium games and those that include in-app purchases have until December 31 to present the Chinese government's Imprimatur on the App Store. Conversely, Apple still charges a commission rate of 30% to all application developers.

The Cyberspace Administration of China called the apps illegal without spelling out the offenses Tripadvisor or the other apps, most of which are from Chinese developers, had committed.

Despite these obstacles, the iOS game is doing well in the country: the income from this activity has represented 13 billion dollars since the beginning of the year, a figure higher than 13%.
