Here's the full text from Apple's post on its site: "Thank you for participating in the affiliate programme for apps".

Apple has made the announcement that it will be discontinuing its iTunes Affiliate Program, at least in terms of including apps for iOS and macOS. Apple reduced the rate for in-app purchases from 7% to 2.5% previous year and where also going to reduce the app purchase rate to 2.5% but they changed their mind after pressure and protests from publishers. Apple also said that after the launch of the new App store interface on the iOS and macOS, there will be more methods of app discovery.

It will still be possible to earn commission on music, movies, books and TV shows. Did Apple had done the right decision about killing the App Store Affiliate program? All other content types (music, movies, books, and TV) remain in the affiliate program.

Meanwhile, third-party reviewers benefit from driving traffic to the App Store, which looks like a conflict of interest with readers who are seeking unbiased advice about which apps to download. As Apple builds up its content business, it may eventually decide to add more in-house reviewers. Through thick and thin, and every curveball the industry threw at us, we always had App Store affiliate revenue- Which makes a lot of sense as we drive a ton of purchases for Apple. Company's quarterly revenue rose 17 percent year-on-year to $ 53.3 billion, while its profits stood at $ 11.5 billion, up 32 percent from its last year. These changes are coming on October 1, 2018, so if you've been relying on that extra bit of income to help fund an initiative or just for some pocket cash on the side, unfortunately that will be going away.
