Apple Opens Up App Store to Classic Game Emulators

In addition to the emulator update, Apple has also clarified its stance on super apps like WeChat. The company now mandates that any mini-games or mini-apps within these super apps must be built using HTML5, effectively prohibiting the inclusion of native apps and games.

Apple’s decision to embrace retro game emulators and address concerns surrounding super apps appears to be a response to ongoing antitrust lawsuits and pressure from regulatory bodies. The United States’ antitrust lawsuit against Apple accused the company of attempting to stifle cloud game streaming apps and super apps.
