Apple intends to implement fresh fees and limitations for downloads of third-party software

As per The Wall Street Journal, Apple is set to introduce additional fees and restrictions when it starts allowing third-party software downloads outside its App Store. This announcement comes several months after the implementation of the Digital Markets Act (DMA) by the European Union, aimed at curbing the market influence of major tech companies and enhancing consumers’ ability to switch between competing services.

Under the DMA, all major tech companies are required to comply by March 7.

According to the WSJ report, Apple’s strategy will enable users to download software onto their iPhones without relying on the App Store, but this flexibility will be limited to Europe.

In a related development, Meta, the social media company, has stated that users will have more choices in how they use its services and has outlined measures to align with the provisions of the act.
