As reported by the App Store users in Australia, Apple has featured a bunch of scam applications in the App Store. The scam apps charge unusual fees from their users and siphon revenue from the higher-quality top apps.
The company’s App Store in Australia posted a story called “Slime Relaxations” in which these scams apps were highlighted and promoted. The apps promoted in the stories had $10+ subscriptions every week which don’t do anything in return.

After the Apple vs. Epic case took place in the courts, the giant tech company said that it won’t be a good idea to let developers or other companies sideload apps on iPhone. Despite Apple’s refusal, it didn’t take much time for people to expose scam apps on the App Store.
