Apple Considering Dropping Requirement for iPhone Web Browsers to Use WebKit ➝

Joe Rossignol, writing for MacRumors:

As part of a larger story about Apple’s plans to allow third-party app stores on the iPhone and iPad in EU countries, _Bloomberg_’s Mark Gurman claimed that Apple is also considering removing its requirement for iPhone and iPad web browsers to use WebKit, the open source browser engine that powers Safari.

Gurman said this potential change comes in response to the EU’s Digital Markets Act. It’s unclear if Apple would drop the requirement in other regions.

This would be an excellent change.
