The next version of iPhone’s iOS may include the sideload apps to your iPhone. Rumors suggest that iOS 17 will include sideload apps feature in iPhone.
According to a Bloomberg report on Sunday, Apple’s upcoming Worldwide Developers Conference on June 5 is anticipated to feature numerous announcements. In addition to the probable debut of Apple’s long-awaited AR/VR headset, the company is expected to showcase iOS 17, the next version of its mobile software for the iPhone. The report suggests that iOS 17 might offer Apple device users the capability to sideload apps.
As per Bloomberg, the possible integration of sideloading in the iPhone implies the ability to download an app without relying on Apple’s App Store. This move is purportedly aimed at complying with new European regulations set to take effect next year.
The objective of the new regulations is to establish a level playing field for third-party developers, but this would represent a substantial change for Apple, which has consistently opposed the concept of sideloading apps. Apple’s contention is that sideloading could potentially jeopardize the security of the iPhone.
Apart from iOS 17, WWDC is expected to reveal the latest versions of iPadOS, MacOS, and an update to WatchOS 10. While it’s currently unclear, there’s a chance that the potential inclusion of sideloading might extend to these operating systems as well.
The upcoming Worldwide Developers Conference promises to be an exciting event for Apple fans, with the potential inclusion of sideloading in iOS 17 and new updates for other operating systems. It remains to be seen what other surprises Apple has in store.
