Apple tweaks changes to comply with EU tech rules after criticism

BRUSSELS, March 6 (Reuters) Apple (AAPL.O), opens new tab, has changed several of its measures to comply with landmark EU digital rules in response to app developer complaints, including eliminating a requirement that firms seeking to launch alternative app marketplaces have a stand-by letter of credit.
The business and five other internet behemoths must comply with the Digital Markets Act (DMA) by March 7, which establishes a list of dos and don’ts aimed at limiting their dominance while also establishing a fair playing field for competitors and more options for users.
In January, Apple unveiled suggestions allowing software developers to distribute their products to customers in the European Union outside of Apple’s App Store, as well as new fees and limitations.
The iPhone maker stated that one modification will now allow developers to sign up for the revised terms introduced two months ago at the developer account level.
“We’ve removed the corporate entity requirement that the Addendum must be signed by each membership that controls, is controlled by, or is under control with another membership,” the company announced on its website late on Tuesday.
