Apple changed its App Store policies to Allow Retro Game emulators Testa was Shocked but luckily he was still working In the app space he's the founder of alt Store which as its name suggests is an Alternative app store why did Apple just Change its stance on emulator app apps So suddenly Apple hasn't commented on This but it could have something to do With increased regulatory pressure on Apple since it was recently sued by the US Department of Justice over antitrust Concerns meanwhile alt store only Existed on Windows and Mac OS but thanks To changing laws in the EU alt store Which hosts Delta was able to come to The iOS in the EU so test thinks that Even if the dog didn't sue Apple the Company still would have budged on its Emulator policy Testa told TechCrunch They just couldn't have the narrative That the coolest app on iPhone is only In Europe thanks to European Regulators Delta's issues with Adobe are a little Less high stakes but it still shows us That big tech companies are paying Attention to the little guys for now Delta changed its logo to look like the Letter Delta with its top chopped off And a skew while the app icon might look Broken the emulator itself very much is Not so if you have any ROM files for Game Boy advanced games GES or Nintendo DS or any other retro game system then
