Tim Cook once again condemned antitrust regulation

Apple CEO Tim Cook has slammed antitrust laws in the US and Europe, which are attempting to force the business to allow mobile apps to be downloaded to the iPhone outside of the App Store once again. According to CNBC, he believes that this will only endanger users’ safety.

Tim Cook said on the DealBook website in November 2021 that third-party apps will never be allowed to be downloaded to the iPhone. And he recommended anyone who disagreed switch to Android, which allows for external installations.

However, legislation is being developed in the United States and Europe to counteract the dominance of huge technological businesses. Cook, as a result, continues to oppose antitrust legislation. He said that the option of external downloading will only harm consumers at the IAPP Global Privacy Summit in Washington. According to Apple’s CEO, this poses a risk of personal data leaking and following people against their choice. “By rejecting a safer option, users will have fewer options, not more,” Cook explained.

The US Senate Legal Committee passed Bill 20-2 on the Open Application Market in February 2022. This year, it will be debated in Congress. Users will be able to download apps on their Apple devices from any retailer, not just the App Store, thanks to the document. As a result, application developers will be allowed to use third-party payment systems and avoid paying a 15-30% commission on all digital purchases.

A law on digital marketplaces was also recently agreed upon by the EU. This is a comprehensive collection of guidelines aimed at large technology firms. Allowing downloads from third-party stores was a necessity in prior versions.
