Promoting Your Subscriptions with New Offers
StoreKit now supports subscription offers in addition to introductory offers, so apps with auto-renewable subscriptions will soon be able to provide a discounted price for a specific duration for existing and previously subscribed customers. You will be able to use subscription offers to help win back subscribers who have canceled their subscriptions or promote an upgrade to another subscription at a special price. Customers can accept the offer even if they’ve already completed an introductory offer.
StoreKit introduces a new array of
SKProduct objects within the
SKProduct class to display offers within your app to eligible customers. Add a new
SKPayment object within the
SKPayment class to allow these offers to be accepted by the customer.
