iPhone can’t sideload apps – here’s why according to Tim Cook Tim Cook

In an interview with Kara Swisher on her New York Times podcast Sway, Apple CEO Tim Cook spoke lightly on a range of topics, including iOS 14.5’s upcoming App Tracking Transparency feature, augmented reality, and user privacy in general. 

But when the discussion turned to Apple’s legal fight with Epic Games to keep the latter’s third-party store off iPhones, which is set to meetin court on May 3, 2021, Cook also said, very plainly, why you can only get apps through the App Store.
