Good news BUZZ Fam, if you’re an iPhone user, then you know how annoying it can be that you don’t get to choose which apps your device uses by default.
Well, Apple may soon be changing that.
According to a report from Bloomberg, the tech giant is considering allowing its users to specify which apps are used for iOS tasks like email or web browsing.
This means BUZZ Fam, that you’ll no longer be forced into using Apple-made apps like Apple Mail to open emails or Safari for browsing web pages as has been the case since the operating system’s inception.
Instead, you could designate Microsoft Outlook or Google’s Chrome web browser if this is your preference.
In addition, the company is considering opening up its hardware like its smart speaker, the Homepod, to using third-party services like Spotify to play music. Currently, Apple Music is the default for its Homepod.
If enacted, the move to allow more integration of apps would mark a major policy shift for Apple.
