In an interview with Bloomberg last month, Apple CEO Tim Cook revealed that the new Apple developer program would allow anyone to build apps for the iPhone and iPad.
Cook’s comments come amid an uproar from developers over Apple’s lack of transparency and the lack of guidelines on what constitutes a good app.
Cook acknowledged in his Bloomberg interview that the company has been “making some mistakes” in the app development field.
Cook has since stepped down as CEO, but the new CEO is reportedly in talks with other high-profile executives in hopes of building a new company to replace Apple.
Apple has also hired a team of 20 developers to help develop new apps for Apple TV, as well as the iPad and Mac, according to Bloomberg.
