Speaking at the Web Summit conference today in Portugal Apple’s software engineering chief Craig Federighi spoke about his and Apple’s views on privacy and sideloading on the iPhone. This follows the recent provision from the EU with the Digital Markets Act that would force Apple to allow sideloading on the iPhone.

Federighi said that sideloading is a criminals best friend and that it would open the floodgates to malware on the iPhone. He also addressed some comments regarding the views for sideloading, where someone could say that they would be able to see an attempt to to manipulate someone into downloading malware, but if anyone makes a mistake then networks where iPhone is used now could get compromised.
