Accelerated Subscriptions Introduction

It is important to test your app before publishing it live. With Live App Testing (LAT), you can assign testers to test the app in a beta environment. Find steps for how to do this in Get Started with Live App Testing.

In-App Purchases (IAP) are services that the customer can purchase. This way, the app can be made available for free, yet still makes a profit. Currently, there are three types of IAPs:

  • Subscriptions
  • Entitlements
  • Consumables

In the past, to test a subscription for one of the supported periods (such as weekly, monthly, or annually), you would have to wait for the full subscription plan to expire to see if it would renew correctly.

With accelerated subscriptions, this has changed. Now in a matter of minutes, you can test even an annual subscription.
