With users able to change their default email and browser apps in IOS 14, Facebook is pressing apple to allow its users to set third-party platforms such as Facebook messenger as the default messaging app. The social media giant has long argued with apple over privacy and in app purchase sharing. Facebook is trying to promote open messaging, given that the default Internet browser and mail app in IOS 14 now have user options. < / P > < p > according to the information on Friday, the changes to these default apps provide another opportunity for Facebook and other companies to complain about the lack of freedom in messaging applications. < / P > < p > & quot; we think people should be able to choose between different messaging apps and default apps on their phones. Generally speaking, in any case, everything is moving in this direction. &Said Stan chudnovsky, director of Facebook messenger at quot; Facebook. < / P > < p > chudnovsky said Facebook had tried unsuccessfully to get apple to open default messaging on its platform. The reason why Apple has not agreed is probably that the message application is the core part of IOS system, and opening it will have a wider impact than email or browser applications. < / P > < p > chudnovsky says: & quot; it’s not really a level playing field for any other developer in the [messaging] space. &Opening default messaging will allow third parties to compete more fairly where IOS is dominant, he added;. As for why Apple didn’t grant third-party apps the ability to become the default messaging tool for IOS, the Facebook executive said the consensus is that messaging apps drive hardware sales;. < / P > < p > there may be risks for Facebook if Apple fights back by opening default messaging. Tim Cook, Apple’s CEO, has been a sharp critic of Facebook’s business model, and the two companies have had friction before. Chetan Sharma, a wireless and mobile industry consultant, admits that apple is unlikely to open default messaging unless it becomes a responsibility. &In my opinion, it is very strategic for apple to maintain control of IMessage, which is not in their interest unless it becomes a major antitrust issue. &Quot; < / P > < p > the technology giant is currently in a legal antitrust dispute with Epic Games, because the developer of Fortress night induced it to delete the app from the app store. On the one hand, apple is also facing government antitrust investigations in Europe and the United States.
