After skyrocketing to the top of the charts with Peace, developer Marco Arment pulled his app from circulation. The ad blocker for iOS 9 is now being refunded to everyone who bought it.
Apple notified me this afternoon that they’ll be proactively refunding all purchases of Peace. It will probably take a few days to process.
As far as I know, this effectively never happens. When I decided to pull the app, I asked some Apple friends to see if this was even possible, and we all thought the same thing: iTunes billing works the way it works, period, and no special cases can be made.
A new era of tech events has begun
We’re back in New York this November for the 4th edition of our growth-focused technology event.
If you purchased Peace, expect an email from Apple noting your refund shortly. The process should take a few days, according to Arment.
