In summary the EU:
-If using a connector, Apple must use USBC. (USBC 4 Eva!).
-If Apple offers a texting app, it obviously does, then the app must talk with all other texting apps. (Interestingly I hear imessage is not popular in the EU but apparently Apple needs to conform).
-Apple must allow any program or utility onto the iPhone outside the iOS framework.
-Apple must allow apps to load within the iOS framework that come from any website.
(Any pluses or minuses aside, these last two bullets just guaranteed at minimum multiple tens of thousands of users will be scammed. Possibly a lot more, some very seriously. Many more of them will now have tracking of that user via their device. So, as one example, did EU regulate all app cross tracking must be disabled by default? What EU tech companies there are, their life blood is that data recording. Huh, that’s an odd coincidence. So did the EU say all makers must make a device that receives 4 straight years of OS update? No, huh, seems that the EUs standardization is not standard across the board).
Why does tech behemoths such as Google, Microsoft, Apple, Amazon, Facebook either not come from the EU or these companies ate an EU based company’s lunch to become dominant? It isn’t tech talent, EU has that. One only needs to look at the bullet points above to see why. The greater the push for ‘it all needs to be done one way’ and the layers of regulations they keep adding to reinforce that, the greater the ability of a company outside of that collective mentality to eat their lunch. Those bullets above are (targeted) nanny state. Far too many don’t think down the line to see what you lose to have a nanny.
