 In the EU, Apple will make several changes to iOS following the DMA. For developers, these changes include new options for publishing apps. Changes to iOS in the EU include:

 New options for distributing iOS apps through alternative app markets — including new APIs and tools that enable developers to make iOS apps available for download in app markets other than the App Store.

 Create a new framework and API to replace the App Market - enabling marketplace developers to install apps and manage updates on behalf of other developers through their dedicated Market App.

 New frameworks and APIs for alternative browser engines - Enable developers to use browser engines other than WebKit to deliver browser apps and apps that include in-app browsing experiences.

 Interoperability Request Form – Developers can submit additional requests to interoperate iPhone and iOS software and hardware features.

 Apple will also share changes involving contactless payments to comply with DMA regulations. The European Commission had previously announced the news. The changes include new APIs that enable developers to use NFC technology in their banking and wallet apps within European economies.
