Allow users to download apps from third-party app stores.

Third-party browsers can use web engines other than Apple WebKit on iPhone.

Third-party wallet apps support calling iPhone’s NFC chip.

Apple will add text lines to the Podcasts app. The overall form is similar to “Lyrics” in Apple Music, allowing users to search for lines from a specific podcast in the app and quickly jump to the relevant part.
