Apple may be about to give its customers a lot more control over their iPhones and iPads. Reportedly, Apple is considering allowing third-party apps to be set as defaults on iOS.
Apple is also debating whether to allow third-party music apps on the HomePod speaker, something would mean allowing users to stream music via Spotify, which is one of Apple Music’s rivals. No decision has been made by the company as of now.
Bloomberg reported the company is said to be considering allowing people to choose their default iOS apps for a broad number of tasks, including maps, web browsing and email.
This means you could potentially replace your iPhone’s default Safari or Maps app with alternatives like Gmail and Google Maps.
As per the report, This might seem like a minor, insignificant change, but it would signal a big concession for Apple.
The report added It could allow apps such as Spotify and Pandora to be streamed directly from Apple’s HomePod smart speaker, giving other developers a fairer shot of competing against Apple’s built-in services
On macOS, even though you do not have complete freedom, you can still set a default browser to something other than Safari
Apple seems to have been forced to reconsider its default app strategy after it was criticised for giving unfair advantage to its own apps on iOS.
Last year, the company was questioned by the US House of Representatives antitrust panel citing competition problems in digital markets and anti-competitive conduct.
