Daniel Ek, Spotify CEO, Says Apple's New App Store Changes Are a 'New Low.'

(CTN News) – The list of executives who aren’t thrilled with Apple’s new app distribution policies grows as more executives join the list.

Earlier this week, Spotify’s chief executive Daniel Ek said in an X post that Apple’s changes represent a “new low, even for them.”

This came just after Spotify released a statement in which it criticized the iPhone maker for acting like it does not recognize the rules governing the industry.

Having just spent a few hours sitting with our legal department parsing through the fine print of DMA announcement (which took a while), which is, at best, vague and misleading, I wanted to share my thoughts with you.
Apple has behaved badly for years, but what happened yesterday represents a new low, even though Apple has behaved badly for years.

In the release of iOS 17.4, Apple announced that once it releases the new software, developers will be able to create and distribute their apps via third-party marketplaces for the first time.

In order to comply with the Digital Markets Act, a European law aimed at curtailing tech giants’ power over the digital economy, Apple will only implement the changes in the EU.

This is because forced to comply with the act due to the Digital Markets Act.

Despite the fact that this may seem like a victory for app developers because it will open up new distribution channels for their apps, some are complaining that will not only retain control of which third-party marketplaces end up on its platform, but it will also charge for downloads on these other marketplaces as well.
