Apple Intelligence may be held back in EU

Apple isn’t releasing Apple Intelligence and other major operating system changes in the EU, because of Digital Markets Act interoperability mandates.

At the time of publication, checks on regional Apple Newsroom pages don’t offer any statements beyond what Apple has provided, and even say that features like Apple Intelligence are on the way.

The Digital Markets Act sets rules to force Apple and other tech giants to open up various services, like the App Store, to encourage more competition. In the EU, Apple has already complied with some of the legislation, such as allowing alternative app storefronts to exist on iPhone, but it’s still dragging its feet in other ways.
