The United States has registered a bill to open third-party iOS app stores. Apple has already rushed to make an official statement, noting that this is completely unacceptable.
North Dakota registered bill 2333 a few days ago. Congressman Kyle Davison, describing the bill, said he was proposing to allow developers to use third-party app stores other than the App Store. It also talks about the possibility of using different payment systems besides Apple Pay.
Since this is a state bill, it only affects business operations in North Dakota. However, if this law is passed and enters into force, then North Dakota’s example could be followed by other American states.
Apple senior engineer Erik Neuenschwander said that “this bill will destroy the iPhone and undermine privacy, security and productivity.” He added that the reason for this would be applications that Apple will not control.
