Critics state that Apple hasn’t gone far enough in opening up its closed environment as required by the Digital Markets Act of the European Union. Apple said that it has complied with the landmark legislation.

Apple (AAPL.O), which unveiled a new tab on Monday, addressed complaints that it hasn’t gone far enough in opening up its closed ecosystem as mandated by the Digital Markets Act of the European Union, asserting that it has cooperated with the historic law.

A list of requirements and restrictions is provided by the DMA for Apple. Alphabet’s (GOOGL.O) opens a new tab. The six companies had to comply with the new tab that was opened by Google, Amazon (AMZN.O), Microsoft (MSFT.O), ByteDance, the owner of TikTok, Meta Platforms (META.O), and Google.

Apple has made a number of changes in recent weeks, including enabling developers to distribute their iPhone apps to customers directly rather than through Apple’s App Store and allowing developers to distribute their apps to users in the European Union outside of the App Store.

At a day-long hearing hosted by the European Commission, the company informed competitors, app developers, and business customers that it had modified its processes to comply with the DMA.

Above all, we were guided by making sure we complied with the law. Secondly, we ensured that our actions aligned with our core principles and the language we have evolved over an extended period of time with our users. And we believe we’ve succeeded in that.” Kyle Andeer, Apple’s attorney, stated this at the hearing.

We’re concentrating on it from the standpoint of the user, I believe.

Not that we aren’t concerned about the effects of developers, but first and foremost, in our opinion, we’ll be closely monitoring how each of these modifications affects the user experience that we have provided to our customers with the iPhone for the past 15, 16 years.” At separate hearings on Tuesday, Amazon on Wednesday, Alphabet on Thursday, ByteDance on Friday, and Microsoft on Tuesday of next week, Meta will outline its compliance activities.

Businesses that violate the DMA run the danger of being fined up to 10% of their yearly global turnover through investigations.
