    The company said cutting off PWAs was part of an effort to comply with the Digital Markets Act, arguing browsers other than its own Safari software would expose users to security and privacy risks that were not permitted under the law.

    They are so full of shit, it’s unbelievable! Are they really claiming that their own browser is THE ONLY legal browser there is?!

      It’s blatant anti-competitive behavior and anybody who cares about antitrust should be outraged about this and similar efforts. Getting legal protection for such decisions is nothing but regulatory capture.

      Don’t they already force every browser on their app store to use the safari engine because “security”?

        Yes, however the EU enacted new regulations to put a stop to that practice, so that Apple will be required to allow other browsers on their platform.

        Disabling PWAs is how Apple has chosen to retaliate against those new regulations.
