Apple is opening up its iPhone App Store in Europe to competitors due to new European law

Non-Apple companies can offer app stores in Europe, but require authorization from Apple.

Developers can choose which app store to distribute their app in Europe.

Apple believes the new regulation puts users at risk for scams and fraud.

Developers are likely to celebrate the changes as they have long been unhappy with Apple’s fees.

The changes are restricted to Europe and will go live in an iOS software update in March.
