iPhones Will Have Alternative App Stores in the EU

iPhones will have alternative App Stores in the EU soon. By enabling sideloading and third-party app stores on the iPhone, Apple will abide by the EU’s Digital Markets Act. Security threats and the effect on Apple’s in-app payment mechanism are among the issues raised by this modification.

In April, iPhone users in the EU will be able to use Setapp, a third-party app store that requires a subscription. Apple’s compliance with the Digital Markets Act (DMA), a recently passed European law that guarantees fair competition in the online market, is what prompted the adjustment.

Apple must provide alternate app stores for iPhones starting on March 7 in accordance with the Digital Markets Act (DMA), and developers must have the option to refuse Apple’s in-app payment mechanism, which levies up to 30% in fees.

“Sideloading,” or installing apps on a mobile device without using the app store that is dedicated to it, has raised concerns from consumers and government agencies in the EU and outside of it, according to the US tech giant. On January 24, it revealed the modifications it was making to bring its App Store into compliance with EU regulations.

The company further stated that multiple organizations stated they intended to restrict sideloading on every device they oversee and that they sought guarantees that they would be able to stop government personnel from sideloading software onto iPhones that the government had purchased.
