    What about the developer fees? What about Epic Games? How does this exactly work if apps are now wild wild west in EU?

      They are not. Apple has shown it has every intention of malicious compliance. You'll be able to install apps, but they won't be able to use your camera or microphone or the internet or any other measure they might come up with, citing the security of the user, until they are again forced to loosen regulations. They will make it a fight for every street and use it to convince apple users that non-apple-anything is useless so by the time the EU has inched apple devices beyond the idea of the walled garden, the user won't want to use it anymore.

        If ipa files can be downloaded elsewhere outside of app store, then developers will not be incentivized to pay the annual Apple developer program fee to have their app published on the app store which Apple will lose their revenue on that. Why the frick would Apple comply to shit like this when they've been known to be a control freak historically? I bet you didn't even thought of that when you read what I asked on first try. Try touch Xcode and make some weather app to know more about the entire iOS app development process on a deeper level before talking to me in that tone lil homosexual

        >m-muh trollstore!
        Apps that are not downloaded from the app store (especially from Xcode builds) will be removed and trollstore is simply an exploit. But I bet you didn't even know that because you're one of the end users that know shit about software development for fricking Apple. Again, try touch Xcode and make weather app. If not, continue to be your average react webBlack person or kys.

          I don't think they care about the $99/year developer fee at all, that's just there to cover the cost of them checking your business registration and so on. The money is made on the 30% cut on IAPs, which is also present on Android, and on Steam, and on game consoles (and I don't see a good reason why people aren't equally mad about those).

            On Android developers are not required to use the Playstore to distribute apps; developers can set up their own store, use third party stores, or simply have an .apk on a website. As for Steam, developers also plenty of other options to sell to any Windows PC gamer; even on the Steamdeck Valve does not stop the owner from installing software from outside of Steam. Now, game consoles you do have a point about, I do think that it is awful that they also artificially lock out unapproved software, and should be subject to similar regulations as iDevices. Someone needs to remind the EU bureaucrats that all three of the major game console companies are outside of the EU, while the EU does have plenty of games devs.

            Android sideloading is intentionally so much worse than the play store that it's essentially useless. Basic functionality like push notifications and location services are only available if your app uses Google Play Services. It's a strategic inclusion that they can point at for regulators, it's not intended to be useful.

            That's good to know; while I have quite a few sideloaded apps on my android phone, I never use any sort of push notifications (I despise them), and almost never use any location based functions either, so I have never had a problem with those. Something that the EU should probably look at then, or US antitrust courts; I know Google lost their recent antitrust case with Epic in the US, and the court is still working on penalities for Google, IIRC.

      This.

Android also used to have essentially no sandboxing and no permissions model, so once an app got on your phone it could do whatever the frick it wanted.

        Yes. The DMA is extremely stupid, because it's trying to legislate specific elements of the business models of big tech companies when what was actually required was a simple law stating people should be able to run whatever software they want on a computer they buy. It's like this because it was written in conjunction with European tech companies like Spotify to benefit them, not you.

      Cook's beginning to realize the ropes of his own poor compliance tied around himself, and begins to squirm. But rest assured, behind him approaches Vestager's BCC (Big Commissioner wiener) dildo, ready to impale him until he removes the nonsense CTF and external transaction fees like a good boy.

      Do elaborate. Because unless you have some foresight on how it might frick this up, I'd say that the entire point of the Digital Services Act on paper is essentially acknowledging that mobile apps are "the internet" for many citizens, and regulating them in a way that forces them to be as or nearly as competitive/open as the web.

        Yes and no.
        If you expect to have fewer than first time 1 million installs per year, then you will pay 0 € to Apple. See pic rel.
        However, if you choose to create a third-party appstore (and you don't have the fee waiver) then you will need to give apple a 1 million euro credit letter from an Apple approved credit firm and start to pay the core technology fee right away (they will not give those first time 1 million installs per year for free to third-party appstores).

            If you follow the example I provided those are still 57900 € for the first 12 months (4825 €/mo avg)
            If you look at a third-party appstore you need to calculate the fee based on the first annual installs in the last 12 months, the second row in the example provided, Apple will not grant you 1 million downloads for free.
            As an example, let's say that for the first 12 months we have 100k downloads each month, in Apr 2024 we have 4200 € with 100k downloads, in May 2024 we have 8400 € with 200k downloads (sum of this months 100k and previous month 100k), all the way up to 50400 € in Mar 2025 with 1.2 million downloads. If we assume that there will be 100k downloads each month for another 12 months on year 2, that are still 50400 € per month each month of the second year, which in total is 604800 €/year.
            327600 € fees on Y1.
            604800 € fees on Y2.

            I don't really see a problem with this given there's an exemption for nonprofits, open-source apps, etc. If you're a business getting millions of installs outside of the app store (meaning people went out of their way to get your app) you can definitely make more than 50 cents a year from each user.

        They made the deadline to 2027 because it applies to all industries, not just smartphones.
        That includes electric cars, bikes, mopeds, scooters and even industrial and farming machinery.

          How can it apply to cars when in cars batteries can be integral part of the structure? Not like phones where it's just glued but actually can replace parts of the hull to save weight.

            A small weight saving that isn't worth making the whole product unusable after a few years. Performance vs. maintenance vs. everything else, etc.

    >(for web distribution you need to) have an app that had more than one million first annual installs on iOS in the EU
    There won't be any open source or individual made apps in web distribution. This on top of the insane core tech fees mean it's pretty much dead on arrival.

        The EU deserves pissing off here, the DMA is incredibly stupid. It's massively complex legislation that creates a worse situation for everyone involved, and all they actually needed to do was legislate that app stores couldn't block your app for business model reasons or include anti-steering provisions for every user and developer (including Epic) to be happy.

          >that creates a worse situation for everyone involved
          Only 22 services of 6 companies are affected so far.
          There is a reason it targets the so called gatekeepers and that is to create a level playing field between them and other small companies who would have a really hard time competing in the market.
          This just benefits the consumer who will have more choices when it comes to digital services.

          [...]
          But this is literally communism, how dare you suggest corporations can't do whatever the frick they want?

          No regulations is the opposite of a free market.
          No regulations creates monopolies/oligopolies, the poor get poorer, the rich get richer.
          Unfortunately the rich had figured this out in the United States, they pay lobbies to influence (to corrupt) politicians and introduce regulations that will have little to no effect on their profits but have massive negative effects on smaller companies.
          In Europe politicians are still for the most part on the side of the citizens, in North America they are on the side of corporations and they pretend to care for the citizens.

            I mean they're not, the EU is also on the side of big corporations, and these gestures of good will don't change that.
            Small businesses are burdened with regulations that only the big companies can afford to comply with leading to the same kind of lack of competition as in the US.
            Otherwise you are right, in the US ~~*corporations*~~ convinced the people that regulations are quintessentially anti-American and anti-freedom.

            Much of the DMA is focused on the minutiae of the business relationship between developers and platform maintainers, and they could have resolved the issues there much more simply. In practice some elements will be actively harmful to users - for example requiring that alternate browser engines be allowed is just going to cement Google's monopoly on web "standards".
            Like much of the EU's technology legislation, the whole thing reads like they just let a few big EU tech companies write it for them to give them whatever they want, and any benefits to customers are pretty much incidental.

            It's not a real choice, it will just replace webkit with more Chromium. There's already a bunch of websites that only work properly in Chromium because modern day web devs have forgotten the lessons of IE6.

            I develop using Firefox dev edition and never test on other browsers. If it works on this foss browser, then I don't really care about the others.
            People can switch browsers, I certainly won't develop for or test code on closed source ones.

          This.
          The DMA should have simply been: "thall shalt not using cryptographic means, which are not controlled by the user, to restrict the free and fair execution of software."

          That's it. If people want to self sign or execute unsigned software, that's their right as OWNERS of their devices. The fact the EU did not assert the right of ownership, I can only assume it's Black personlicious, even if it humourously causes harm to Apple, which is merited and just alone.

    I fricking love it, those forums are a goldmine for when stuff like this happens.
    Other threads to enjoy are the ones where someone complains about MacBook pros having only 8gb of ram, people there legit defend this shit for a $1000 laptop, it's fricking hilarious the brainwash that those people have.

    ....why not just focus on making the apps run in the browser, so that anyone can host them and any device can run them? did Google even make any real progress on PWAs since 2016 or did they just buddy up with Apple and big gubmints for a share of that delicious multibillion dollar app store pie?

    Now can I finally install RetroArch on iOS instead of having to use browser emulators and saving it offline as an offline web page?

    I can't believe how awful iOS is in regards to emulation when compared to Android.

    Good. Now they just need to:

    Ban Proprietary single-platform APIs that lock developers and software to a platform and make cross-platform development more difficult.
    Ban kernel-level malware that prevents users from using the platform of their choice even if APIs are compatible.
    Ban software patents, and rent seeking for use of mathematics that allows a user access to their data.

    I am so sick of these half measures.
