The change will allow small developers to inform their customers of alternative payment options beyond the official App Store.

The App Store Awards for this year has announced a total of 15 winning apps from various categories–which spans from utilities to pure gaming, as per the report by Apple Insider.

It comes after the Cupertino giant held its Apple Music Awards and the announcement of the best titles from the Apple Podcasts.
