Opera: New DMA rules offer an opportunity to 'pressure' Apple to open up to everyone

Apple's closed ecosystem appears to be slowly opening up, at least in the EU. On January 25, 2024, major tech companies revealed changes to their App Store and business models in light of new requirements under the Digital Markets Act (DMA), which is scheduled to come into force in March.

However, Apple's announcement was controversial. Many critics, including Meta founder Mark Zuckerberg and music app giant Spotify, deemed this a farce. According to VPN service provider Proton VPN, “Apple is looking to profit from DMA.” Reflecting such concerns, web browser Mozilla sees this as “another example of Apple putting up barriers to prevent true browser competition on her iOS.”
