    What's the issue here? A 1mn euro letter of credit isn't particularly hard to obtain. If there's a market for providing these, I wouldn't be surprised to see them conditionally bundled into indemnity insurance for app developers or some similar product (with the restriction that this would be drawn against debts, linked to whatever the T&Cs are).

    I agree that it's an unnecessary restriction, and definitely bullshit. But it's also a fairly minor hurdle.

    It also doesn't prevent some shared app marketplace - that developers use. This isn't a per-developer requirement. For example, one of the various FOSS trusts could set up a FOSS marketplace, with conditions on what goes there. Or other businesses could set up marketplaces with their own terms of use.

      you still have to submit your apps to apple to have them notorized to be able to install them on system even through these third party stores. this whole thing is bullshit i suspect the eu didn't include good wording they should have been very specific and said something like
      >users must be able to run unsigned code on their devices

      It forces small app developers to use some marketplace and thus pay for some marketplace fees.
      Apple is probably hoping the vast majority will pick Apple's marketplace.

      If every small app developer handled their own payments the middle men would lose shitloads of money.

        If you can't get a job even for a little while to buy something you want, then you shouldn't be allowed to create a marketplace for other, responsible adults to put software on and conduct business with

        You may view it as just a way to oppress the poor but I promise you that all sorts of miscreants would be here if we didn't require this. Some random kid CAN put software on android's app store, and most apps on there as a result are full of Ads and Malware

    Imagine not having 1000 euros... It's less than you'd pay for an iPhone here in Europe.

      There are 2 of the comas which means it's not the Euro decimal symbol, but the Anglo thousand separator in this case.

    The fact that Apple is spending so much time and money trying to dodge the law instead of just adding a "this might frick your phone up" warning is a sign of how utterly fricked their business model is.They literally cannot afford to break the tard illusion that their products are unsullied walled gardens.

      It's not just that. They want to discourage the EU or any other governments from trying to curb their behaviour in the future. Dragging their feet, malicious compliance, purposefully doing what's asked in the most awful way possible. Same thing with their official self-repair bullshit.
      It's an attempted power play against regulation.
