(Reuters) – Apple Inc (O:) on Friday published a revision of some of its App Store review guidelines, loosening some restrictions on streaming game services, online classes and on when developers must use its in-app purchase system that charges a 30% commission.

The company made the changes after criticism from developers over its App Store practices and after some of its rivals such as Microsoft Corp (O:) and Alphabet Inc’s (O:) Google declined to launch their streaming game platforms on iPhones because of Apple’s rules.
