EU Competition Chief on iOS Sideloading

Juli Clover (tweet):

In ongoing antitrust discussions about App Store competition, Apple has maintained that allowing users to install apps outside of the App Store would have dire privacy consequences, but European Union digital competition chief Margrethe Vestager said today that Apple must not use privacy excuses to limit competition.

In an interview with Reuters, Vestager said that privacy and security are of “paramount importance,” but she does not believe that customers would be sacrificing security when sideloading an app.
