Apple is considering offering competitors more options on iPhones, iPads and the HomePod speaker. Users should soon be able to set other browsers and mail services as a standard service.
They are not automatically directed to Safari and Mail when they click on a link. This offers opportunities for Chrome, Gmail and Outlook, for example.
Bloomberg news agency writes about Apple’s considerations based on company sources. Apple would also like to give users the option to put Spotify directly on their HomePod.
That is not possible now, and that is why Spotify has filed a complaint with the European Commission against Apple.
If you buy an iPad or an iPhone, you get 38 apps from Apple that are pre-set, such as Safari, Maps, Messages and Mail.
