Tim Cook just explained why you can’t install any app you want on iPhone

Unlike other computers that let users install any applications they desire, the iPhone and iPad can only get apps from a single place, at least officially. Apple’s App Store is the only application store on iOS and iPadOS devices, and that’s actually much better than it sounds. The App Store contains a massive number of free and premium apps and games. On top of that, developers continue to create new experiences, and most tend to start with the iPhone. It’s only later that Android gets the same apps.

Apple’s tight control over the App Store has drawn plenty of criticism and scrutiny recently. Regulators are increasingly more interested in how big tech does business, and Apple is included in the list. Separately, Epic Games has sued Apple over its App Store policies in a highly publicized case that might have a larger impact on the entire App Store business model in the future. Epic wants Apple to allow alternate app stores on the iPhone, as well as alternate payment methods.

In a wide-ranging interview about its products, Apple CEO Tim Cook explained exactly why users couldn’t install anything they want on iPhone. The answer will not surprise anyone who has been using iPhone and iPad for a few years, as Cook made the same argument before. It’s all about ensuring the security of users.
