Apple Senior Vice President Craig Federighi spoke out at the 2021 Web Summit against the European Commission’s proposed Digital Markets Act, which, if passed, would require Apple to allow users to install apps outside of the App Store.
Downloading unpublished apps is cybercriminals’ best friend. If the iPhone is able to do this, it will set off a gold rush for the malware industry.
He added that the lack of the ability to download applications from outside the App Store is what separates Apple from “5 million Android attacks a month,” and if Apple allows users to install unverified applications, it will open gateways for malware.
Federighi strongly opposes letting the user decide how dangerous it is to download applications. He believes cybercriminals are smart and can even target informed users with deceptive websites and fake app stores.
Even if you are confident that you will not suffer from the actions of criminals, Federighi asks to think about children and parents who are much easier to fool. He didn’t say that the ability to install apps from outside the App Store would rob Apple of the billions of dollars in annual revenue it earns from App Store commissions.
