According to Bloomberg’s Mark Gurman, iPhone users in the EU will be able to download apps hosted outside the official App Store next year under European rules.

Coming in the first half of 2024, the feature will allow customers to download apps without having to use the App Store, meaning developers won’t have to pay Apple’s 15 to 30 percent fee.

Gurman said Apple will introduce a “tightly controlled system” that will allow EU users to install apps hosted elsewhere.

The European Union’s Digital Markets Act (DMA), which came into effect on November 1, 2022, requires companies to open up their services and platforms to other companies and developers.

DMA will have a major impact on Apple’s platforms and could lead to Apple making major changes to the App Store, FaceTime, Siri, and other apps.
