Apple discounts Mac Developer Program subscription to $99
Apple this week slashed hundreds -- and in some cases thousands -- of dollars from the cost of its Mac Developer Program annual subscription, which now carries a flat fee of $99 per year.
Previously, developers had to pay between $499 for the "Select" tier and $3,499 for the "Premier" categorization. The newly revamped Mac Developer Program is modeled after Apple's wildly successful iPhone Developer program, and offers technical resources, support and more.
Now the ball is in Microsoft's court and up to them to match Apple. Currently Microsoft cheapest offering in comparison is over $1000!
