Tim Cook, the CEO of Apple, has recommended everyone who wants to install apps from third-party sources to give up their iPhones and switch to Android smartphones.
Many users consider the closed nature of the iOS operating system as the main disadvantage. Apple itself sees it as a key advantage of the OS. Cook claims that the company has managed to create a secure space with privacy at the forefront.
Head of Apple sees transition to smartphones with Android operating system as the only way for everyone who wishes to install software from third-party sources bypassing App Store. He announced this at the DealBook Summit. There Tim Cook also admitted to investing in cryptocurrency, but did not specify how much and in which one.
The Apple CEO calls downloading software from third-party sources dishonest and compares it to a car manufacturer that sells cars without airbags or seatbelts. Cook says the iPhone wouldn't be as popular if it didn't offer maximum security and privacy.
But we should not forget that the App Store brings the company additional income, which it would lose if users start bypassing the app store to install software. Now developers pay Apple a commission of 15-30%.
