Japan plans to enforce sideloading regulation on Apple

  • Japan’s regulator is drafting antitrust legislation to compel tech giants like Apple and Google to permit third-party app stores and alternative payment methods.
  • The legislation, similar to the EU’s Digital Markets Act, is expected to be sent to parliament next year, with more details to be revealed by spring 2024.
  • Despite Apple’s resistance to sideloading, citing user safety concerns, it is reportedly preparing to comply with such regulations in regions where required.
