Netflix is the largest and most popular streaming platform in the world, but it has made some controversial decisions in recent months. After cracking down on password sharing, many predicted that Netflix would lose a significant number of subscribers. However, the opposite happened, and Netflix actually gained subscribers.

Now, Netflix is making another change that could potentially lead to a loss of subscribers. 

The company is phasing out the ability to pay for a Netflix subscription through the Apple App Store.

This change has been in the works for a while. In 2018, Netflix stopped allowing new subscribers from paying through the App Store, existing subscribers were still able to do so.

Now, Netflix is ending this option for all subscribers. The company is sending emails to users who still pay through the App Store, asking them to update their payment method. If they do not do so, they will lose access to Netflix.

Netflix has not said how many users are affected by this change. However, it is likely to be a relatively small number. Most Netflix subscribers pay for their subscription through a credit card or another payment method.

The change is likely to be unpopular with some users. Netflix believes that it is necessary to protect its revenue. The company argues that it pays Apple a high fee for each subscription that is processed through the App Store. By eliminating this fee, Netflix can save money and invest it in creating new content.

It remains to be seen how many users will cancel their Netflix subscription as a result of this change. It is clear that Netflix is willing to make changes that could potentially alienate some users in order to protect its bottom line.
