technically they won't, since nobody else besides Apple uses iOS, and iPhones in general.
if they did force Apple, well it would be like forcing Ferrari to allow other manufacturers to make Ferrari cars, using Ferrari blueprints, and sell it under Ferrari's name.


on a side note, EU technically isn't being fair to Google, they're implying that Google has no control over PlayStore, and they should allow anyone to use it.
if worse comes to worst, Google might just ban PlayStore in EEA entirely.

trolling an adult is very dangerous, don't try it at home nor at work. you don't want to play tag with a rabid man.
