$150k can get you 2 people to build iOS ecosystem after around 20k or so of CC fees? I think you answered why Apple have to charge money for providing the App Store service.
But evne at face value, this is 🤯. If you're a developer making $1m, Apple is STILL asking to be paid $150,000, just to process payments on the monopoly computing platform in the US. That's obscene! You could hire two people at that take, still have money for CC processing.
