Gmail adds support for Apple’s Files app on iOS

Apple has always had its own apps set as defaults in cases like the music player and the browser, Apple Music and Safari respectively. Now you can only use their Safari browser or mail app by default.

Keeping users connected to Apple's services is vital for the company as the growth of smartphone sales decline and the sales of music, video, cloud storage and other subscriptions make up a greater share of Apple's total revenue. That seems as bad as it gets now, and now Apple is on the defense about all of this refusing to state further comments when asked by news outlets.

For the first time, Apple may start allowing iOS users to choose which apps their device uses by default.

Furthermore, given how popular iPhones are, setting an app as default on them automatically increases its user count or daily active user base. Sometimes it's worth letting go of a little bit of control to give your customers something they've been waiting for. I'm willing to acknowledge that Android has come a long way, but it just doesn't have the same overall look, feel, and simplicity as Apple's mobile operating system. That's not all that surprising considering that Apple has been working hard to build a worthy competitor to Google Maps primarily as a way to create better protection for user privacy.

There is a lot of talk about Apple and iOS and many have said that the experience is like a walled garden.

In the future, when Apple will try to expand their services you will see these ads more than you are seeing them right now, but still nobody is calling out Apple for this. Why?

Apple has their browser and their email application, and its users had to adjust with them.

Back in December 2019, Kuo's report indicated that the Lightning Port-less phone would likely be the top-tier model of the 2021 iPhone line (the iPhone 13 Pro Max, using Apple's current naming scheme) while other models (the iPhone 13 Pro and iPhone 13) would retain the Lightning Port. Finally, the users will be able to replace these two. The same limitation is also found on Siri as the voice assistant will only entertain music requests for Apple Music. Apple is focusing on increasing its service business, which is not expected to slow down in the coming years.
