iOS 17.4: Apple Introduces Browser Choice for EU Users

iOS 17.4 – Apple announced that iPhone users in the European Union (EU) will be prompted to select their default web browser when launching Safari for the first time after updating to iOS 17.4.

iOS 17.4 update will feature a popup message displaying a curated list of the 12 most popular browsers available on the App Store in the user’s country. The order of this list will be randomized for each individual user.

One aspect of this update is that it will grant third-party browsers, utilizing web engines distinct from Safari, the ability to be selected as the default browser for the first time. It is essential to emphasize that these alterations are exclusive to the European Union.

Here is a comprehensive breakdown of the browser options that will be included in the iOS 17.4 prompt within the European Union. The order of presentation will be randomized for each user based on the popularity of these browsers in their respective App Store:

  1. Chrome
  2. Firefox
  3. Microsoft Edge
  4. Opera
  5. Brave
  6. DuckDuckGo
  7. Vivaldi
  8. Safari
  9. UC Browser
  10. Aloha
  11. Puffin
  12. Ghostery

This move by Apple aims to simplify the process for users to set their default browser and foster healthy competition among browsers in the EU market. users will now have the opportunity to choose a browser that aligns with their preferences and requirements.

It’s important to note that these changes are exclusive to the European Union and reflect Apple’s commitment to complying with regional regulations and fostering a more user-centric environment. The randomized presentation of browser options further ensures a fair and unbiased selection process for users navigating the iOS 17.4 update in the EU.
