Cook: Apple focuses on maintaining the privacy and security of the App Store
Apple CEO Tim Cook was asked today about some of the regulatory issues that his company faces in the App Store. He said that Apple is maintaining a focus on privacy and security.Apple is facing potential regulatory changes, which will force it to open the iPhone to other app stores or otherwise load apps on the iPhone.
Cook said: “The main thing we focus on in the App Store is to maintain attention to privacy and security. These are the two main principles that have produced a very trustworthy approach that brings consumers and developers together. Environment. Consumers can trust the developer, and the application is what they say. Developers get a huge user base to sell their software. This is the first item on our list. The others are far away. Two. What we do is try to explain the decisions we have made, and these decisions are the key to maintaining our privacy and security.iPhoneThere are no sideloading and other methods on the Internet. We open iPhone to uncensored applications, and these applications can pass our privacy restrictions on the App Store. “
Cook went on to point out that Apple is “very focused on discussing App Store privacy and security issues with regulators and legislators.”
Apple recently won an antitrust lawsuit with Epic Games. The judge in this case ruled that Apple does not have a monopoly. However, Apple was told to allow developers to include links to external websites and alternative payment options in their apps.
Apple was asked to make this change within the December deadline, but Apple appealed for more time and asked to avoid making the change until the entire case has a result.
As early as June, US legislators proposed an anti-monopoly law, which would require Apple to make comprehensive changes to the App Store. There is no doubt that Apple will oppose this.
