Apple warns against sideloading iOS apps

Apple, besieged by regulators and rivals challenging its exclusive control over its iOS App Store, has published a 31-page defense of its ostensibly benevolent monopoly that warns of disastrous consequences if Cupertino is forced to allow competition. “[S]ome are demanding that Apple support the distribution of apps outside of the App Store, through direct downloads or third-party app stores, a process also referred to as ‘sideloading,'” Apple says in its treatise, “Building a Trusted Ecosystem for Millions of Apps, A threat analysis of sideloading.” [PDF].
