Posted by Joe Rossignol

Update – 10:09 a.m. PT:Apple says the App Store showing an app review screen in the EU is a bug and will be fixed before iOS 17.4 will be released to all users. . The original story follows.

Starting with the latest iOS 17.4 beta, Apple is asking iPhone users in the EU to check app information before installing it from the App Store. The tip was spotted by Dimitris Sartzetakis of @iSWUpdates and others.

iOS 17.4 will allow iPhone users in the EU to install apps from so-called “alternative app stores” , and a confirmation screen will appear on those storefronts as well. Apple is likely aiming to avoid anti-competitive complaints by also displaying the notice on its own App Store if it remains in the public release of iOS 17.4.

Apple previously announced that iOS 17.4 will be released in March, and the App Store changes only apply to the 27 countries that are part of the EU, including France, Germany, Italy, Spain, etc. Notably, the UK left the EU in 2020.
