Apple to Allow Outside App Stores in Overhaul Spurred by EU Laws

Written on Dec 16, 2022

News from Bloomberg tell us that Apple is working on allowing “third-party” App Stores to the iOS ecosystem (i.e. sideloading). In my opinion, that’s a huge customer win, but I’m waiting to see what actually comes out of this: Apple’s “right-to-repair” program had me really excited, but it turned out to be pretty much useless, costing almost the same as taking your iDevice to an Apple Store, with the added risk of breaking it even more.
