Apple’s iOS 17 to allow sideloading of apps
And iOS 17 will cause some noise beyond WWDC itself. Apple is working to overhaul the software to open up the iPhone to sideloading — the downloading of apps outside of its official store
It’s looking like Apple is going to cave in and allow the sideloading of apps with iOS 17. If this comes to pass it’s sure to cause some grief for the inexperienced users who fuck up their iPhone or iPad by sideloading an app with malware or worse.
