Default Does Apple get a cut of IAPs?

The title is pretty self explanatory. I know apple gets a 30% portion of apps sales, but does that apply to inapp purchases?

If not, then they have a financial incentive to put a damper on the F2P crap that's on the rise.

I'm pretty sure they do. I mean, why the heck not?

I know you'd like to hear otherwise, but yeah.

They do. Im pretty sure the contract goes with something like "apple gets a cut in total revenue" which should include app sales and IAP. Else Apple cant earn money with "free to download, IAP to unlock full version" type of games.

If you could prove that IAPs in certain instances are done in a illegal fashion than surely Apple would be in the firing line as well then?
