How about a link so we know what we're talking about?There is a story today in the Wall Street Journal, which states Apple is considering allowing sideloading of software on their phones. This is in direct response to a lawsuit brought in the EU more to follow.
In the article it said Apple is trying to fig out how to do it while maintaining the security of the OSI would love to see it as it would finally make iOS fully open to some customization that only android had before
you do know since most of us had been doing side loading forever with our blackberrys, the news is still big and interesting at best. A step forward. As for the nannie part, no both systems are fine. Apple is locked down for control and security. Their phones can’t be beat for ease of use and compatibility across product lines. I still prefer BlackBerry OS10 but that ship sailed a long time ago.Folks that need a nanny to protect them pay for Apple iPhone products. If Apple goes with this then provide the user with a liability waiver, with a message not more than 10 words and not some 10 page Holy End User Agreement that is too much of a burden for most to read before blindly accepting.
Android has allowed side-loading for eons [dev mode] as well as third party app stores such as Amazon App store.
I would love to see OS 10 come back into full throttle, but I fear that ship sailed and is not coming back…….I was late in appreciating the BB10 when that was a thing. My preference then was what someone can do with the least foot print --- BBOS was all that out of the box. I do appreciate although a bit late the BB10 for being a real time OS based on QNX. And that may have been BB best investment as they are churning it towards the base OS of IoT technology in new automobiles and the self-driving stuff.
I could see BB QNX going full circle in a promising future. Not just a BB phone; fist though a QNX computer operating system for personal and corporate computing. It will take a bit of momentum to compete against OS/X and Windows yet Linux is doing well paving the alternate path. Which some suggest why the one sided MS loves Linux campaign.
Welcome to CrackBerry!!!! Post early and post often!!!!!Apple iPhones and sideloading refer to the ability to install apps on an iPhone without using the official App Store. Unlike Android phones, iPhones do not allow users to sideload apps directly, and all apps must be downloaded from the App Store. However, there have been calls from some users and developers to allow sideloading on iPhones, arguing that it would promote competition and give users more control over their devices.
Apple, on the other hand, has argued that sideloading would lead to security and privacy risks, as users may inadvertently install malicious software or compromise their devices. Additionally, Apple claims that the App Store provides a curated and secure experience for users and developers, with strict guidelines and quality standards in place.
In summary, while there are arguments for and against sideloading on iPhones, it ultimately remains up to Apple to decide whether to allow it or not.
It's a bot. Or a human pasting word for word what a bot spits outWelcome to CrackBerry!!!! Post early and post often!!!!!
Or the user of they decide to jailbreak.it ultimately remains up to Apple to decide whether to allow it or not.
I'm actually a really advanced paperclip.I'm wondering if @conite is some kind of AI bot that was BlackBerry developed for BB10 or QNX that is beta tested here.
I heard you just beam in and out once in a whileI'm actually a really advanced paperclip.
Obviously Beta ......... wait for it....... MaxI'm actually a really advanced paperclip.
Another move to meet EU coming requirements....Apple talking about opening up OS 16 for non approved apps.
Let’s see what they really do, Apple has a way of saying yes then dragging its feet for years, unless it benefits Apple ……lmaoAnother move to meet EU coming requirements....
I suspect like with Android it will require user to allow it, and accept their phone may not be secure anymore if they install something that is not "safe". So in the end very few will risk it, but at least it will give some an option.
