Apple will allow you to change default apps in iOS?Nikolay Blinkov
Apple is considering the possibility of providing iPhone and iPad users to choose third-party apps in iOS by default – for example, for email or browser.
The policy of Apple to the pre-installed software on their gadgets is traditionally tough, especially on iOS devices. Download them on any browser via the Apple Store is not a problem, however
this browser make pre-installed by default. It has been a constant feature of iOS gadgets all generations and releases. With a strong desire to set an alternate default
browser helped only tweak from the repository (e.g. BrowserDefault) from apps such as Cydia or Sileo. Of course, this is only possible on jailbreak exposed (from the English. Jailbreak –
jailbreak) the device. If the owner didn’t want to hack your device or have not had the opportunity to do so (Apple has traditionally complicated with each new version of this procedure), he
just had to buy an Android device.
This immutable rule is finally Apple is thinking to give up because of pressure from the U.S. Federal antitrust authorities (we will remind, about 10 years ago in the same situation were
Microsoft, which was also forced to abandon the default installation of Internet Explorer under pressure from the European antitrust authorities). Thus, the company has been criticized for new
safety function that prevents the tracking of users on the part of Congress with the release of new iOS 13.
IOS 13 Apple gave the ability to block access to any program publisher not Apple confidential information. However, in relation to their own BY restrictive measures
the company does not initiate. Interestingly, Apple has also ordered vendors to explain, for example, coordinates tracking and location device owners upon delivery of this security
in the App Store.
In Congress, however, the actions Apple has considered giving the advantage to the world developers, and thus violate the competition law and decided to conduct an audit to determine the legality
use mechanism tracking limits. The trouble for the company turned around and the new application Lokator (replacing the “Find iPhone”), introduced in iOS 13 smartphone continuously
scans the area in search of the missing devices. Simultaneously, the smartphone also scanned other smartphones, and thus under the pretext of searching “lost and found” violated the privacy
in fact, any owner of the apparatus, which was negatively perceived by the us legislature. Congress, however, has decided on the audit of the company.
The Federal trade Commission, the US suddenly launched an investigation into all the circumstances of the acquisitions by large corporations, small companies (mostly startups). The investigation should
to relate all the circumstances of the acquisitions of small companies over the past decade – from 1 January 2010 to 31 December 2019. The Federal trade Commission is interested in all motives and
the circumstances of these acquisitions, however, without mentioning their goals it wishes to achieve through this investigation.
