Apple is under the scrutiny of policymakers worldwide for the way it handles and enforces App Store regulations. Some developers have been asking for lower App Store fees, the ability to process in-app payments themselves, and support for third-party stores or sideloading apps. Apple has been defending its iPhone App Store practices around the world, agreeing to make some concessions along the way. However, Apple hasn’t yet made big changes , and the company continues to defend its ecosystem. The newest defense comes in the form of a security report.
Apple explains why sideloading apps on iPhone would be so dangerous for users. In the process, Apple compares the iPhone to Android, which supports sideloading. Android has up to 47 times more malware than iPhone, according to recent research, and Apple fears the same could happen to iOS.
