Apple tells House panel it doesn’t need to make apps for Android. – Bestgamingpro

With the public pressure to accept sideloading on iOS mounting, Apple has published a new security paper today examining real-world data on how malware affects mobile devices.

According to a draft bill proposed in the United States, Europe, and elsewhere, Apple would be forced to allow sideloading on iOS if it wanted to continue selling apps through the App Store. The company is out today with a new security study that goes into detail about why it considers opening up the App Store a bad idea.

Users may have little choice but to sideload an app that they need to interact with family and friends since the program is not available on the App Store.

Recent Android trojans such as Banker.BR, TeaBot, and BlackRock are also mentioned in the new Apple study.

To summarize, Apple quotes seven sources from the US Department of Homeland Security to the European Agency for Cybersecurity to Norton in order to support its position. You can read Apple’s entire October security report here.

In contrast, the Commissioner for Competition in the European Union, Margrethe Vestager, previously stated that Apple should not use privacy and security issues as a pretext for anti-competitive behavior.
