    imho with modern web standards and PWAs I think developers have much less reason to gripe about the App Store than they did a decade or more ago, when Steve Jobs had proposed web apps as a "sweet solution" pre-iPhone SDK

    Wouldn't this be a violation to the EU laws?

      yes.

      i''m too lazy to click the link, how would this work? i can see them building some kinda anti-virus so it blocks IPAs (apk equivalent) but how would they charge fees? a pop-up message that says "this application wasn't verified by apple, pay $0.99 to verify and use this application <pay> <cancel>"?

      >how would this work?
      it wouldn't work. that's the plan. apple are going to try to make it look least attractive to develop apps without apple's ecosystem.
      > i can see them building some kinda anti-virus so it blocks IPAs (apk equivalent) but how would they charge fees?
      they can't. it defeats the whole purpose of the agreement with eu. blocking ipa not from apple store but is signed with a valid key from apple would lead to eu raping tim cook's already thrashed out and prolapsing buttholes. seems to be the gameplan is to make itoddler developers hate on third parties because now everyone is going to get taxed more. there's nothing more to it than that.

      Apple is asking the EU to fine it more over these kinds of responses to judgements, just like the Epic judgement where you can *technically* have users buy IAPs outside of the store now, but they have to be eaten by a tiger first

      The same way they charge $100 a year for devs to be able to sign their Mac apps. Except they're probably going to make it a lot more expensive for iOS and still make rules on what kinds of apps they will sign just to spite the EU.

        I don't think they are that masochistic. They are probably trying to get around the regulation and get some money back but for how long? The regulations will eventually change to grant actual free access to alternative markets. I don't know why Apple even bothers trying to fight back if they always end up going along with the regulations

    That seems like something the EU would get their panties in a bunch over.
    The entire point of the sideloading is that users would be able to install applications that haven't gone through all the checks, requirements and revenue sharing shenanigans that Apple requires for App Store apps. If all that bullshit is still required and it's only the App Store itself that's not necessarily needed then that'd miss the whole point of the regulations.

    Why should interest rates matter for a company that made $100 billion in net income (not revenue) in 2023?

    • 1 month ago

      Because all corporate projects are financed with debt. The rate of return factors in interest over the life of the project. A higher interest rate means a lower return, which means that some manager somewhere looks bad. Why did YouTube pick right now to fight ad blockers? Why did Amazon, with all of the profitability of AWS, pick right now to show ads on Prime even if you pay? Profit doesn't mean that higher interest doesn't make managers look bad. They have to find ways to maintain 15% YoY growth no matter what.

    genuinely why are they stingy over this?
    EVERY OS lets you install any app you want
    even fricking Macs
    so why iPhones have to be this locked down?

    and this comes from an iPhone user, i wanted sideloaded apps for so long

      I'm sure they would like to lock down Macs. But it wouldn't be such an obvious enshittifaction even their users would balk at it.

        Apple has literally argued that allowing people to install unapproved software on Macs was a historical accident which they deliberately avoided repeating in the design of iOS.
        They are slowly tightening the noose around macOS too, though, with Gatekeeper, which runs as a blacklist rather than the App Store whitelist model, for now.
        https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gatekeeper_(macOS)
        We are one false flag cyber terrorism attack away from governments mandating that Gatekeeper, and SmartScreen for Windows, become whitelists too.

        It's already impossible to distribute Mac software to normalBlack folk without paying the toll. You need to instruct them to right click, alt-click Open, accept, right click again, alt-click Open again... normalBlack person brains shut off at "right-click".

          Here is an idea for Apple to make sideloading a pain, in case any Anons work there - make it so that before an iToddler can sideload an app it plays an audio warning messages about viruses and other bullshit, that is like five or ten straight minutes of boring legalese, before it will proceed with the side load.

    Let me guess: Apple will offer third party appstores to scan their apps for malware in exchange for money so normies will feel safe.
    Then they can commence to spam third party appstores that don't with malware and keep control while being forced to allow sideloading.

    Seems dumb that Apple is trying to bypass the EU in this way; it would be better to simply allow sideloading, but just make it a giant pain in the ass for the end user to do so with multiple warning screens about viruses, having to enter password more than once during the process, "hold this button down for sixty seconds to confirm", and so on. That would technically comply with the EU rules, while being enough of a pain that most iToddlers would not bother.

    This is the WSJ article that was the source for the op article. I can't actually find where they supposedly got their info from, they just claim it's gonna happen. But I did mostly skim it, maybe someone else will find the section where they mention it.

      it's probably real, as

      combine that with some new "syscalls" are now locked behind code signing entitlement garbage.
      gayOS is also being lost in real time.

      said. iOS already uses code signing garbage to lock down behavior of apps so it's an easy way to offer code signing to sideloaded garbage so it will actually work on iOS. Obviously that feels like a total slap in the face of the intent of the regulation, but we're also talking about an Apple that got slapped for forcing apps to use their payment processor, but offering you yet another entitlement and forcing you to rev share to use it.
