Apple Will Reportedly Allow Users To Change Default Apps On iPhones And iPads

Apple will soon lax its rule on competitor apps like Microsoft Outlook and Google Chrome and let users install them on iPhones and iPads as default apps

Apple will soon lax its rule on competitor apps like Microsoft Outlook and Google Chrome and let users install them on iPhones and iPads as default apps.

This move was made after Apple had been under fire for not letting people change the default apps. This means if you prefer Mozilla Firefox, for example, you can have it as your web browser instead of Safari.

The iPhone maker will reportedly allow users to use Spotify with its HomePods if they do not want to use Apple Music. When it comes to music streaming service, no other has been able to beat Spotify.

Apple has not issued any official statement regarding this matter.

Ever since the App Store was launched in 2008, Apple has made its home-grown apps the default choices on its devices. Since this restriction has made it challenging for third-party developers to compete, which raises the concern of whether Apple has made an antitrust violation.

It is no secret that many prefer apps of other developers to those of Apple. Gmail offers several handy features that Apple Mail does, and Google Maps can be useful in more situations than Apple Maps, at least for now.

Apple has launched the change to Macs but on iPhones and iPads, things are a bit trickier to change.

It is obvious that the iPhone maker wants no more lawsuit against it and is trying to prove that it did not violate antitrust laws. Last year, it has already been dragged in a lawsuit regarding its App Store, which Apple is considered by many as monopolistic.
